I made a vow months ago that I would finally start streaming video game footage regularly on a once or twice a week schedule. Well, life hit me hard, but I finally got around to doing it. It’s not exactly difficult, especially when using Restream, but it takes focus and commitment that I only recently found the wherewithal to have.
Restream is the service I use to stream to multiple streaming services at the same time. Since it copies a single input and spreads it to multiple outputs, it takes strain off my computer, which is free to dedicate processing power to ensuring that the stream is the highest quality possible. That’s good because streaming video is a significant strain on my laptop.
Basically, I get to send one stream to Twitch and YouTube at the same time. Twitch has the audience for streaming, but the content there is transient, disappearing after a few days. In contrast, YouTube saves copies of streams forever, but not nearly as many viewers tune in during the stream. Effectively, Restream lets me have the advantages of both and mitigates any weaknesses.
Of course, I don’t have much of an audience for my streaming, at least yet. Well, that’s okay. I need to eventually build up an audience over time. But if you happen to be interested, I’m currently playing the original Kingdom Hearts on Wednesday and Sunday. I do love my Disney movies and action RPGs.
Honestly, I’m not really sure what else to write here. If you’re streaming anything, especially video game footage, use Restream. If you want to watch someone’s video game stream, try subscribing to mine.
There, is that enough? Now give me my free premium subscription, Restream!
