Game Streaming is the process of broadcasting a video game as it is being played over the internet. This is usually done through a video game streaming platform such as Twitch, YouTube Gaming, or Mixer. When streaming, the player shares their screen with viewers, allowing them to watch the game being played in real-time. Viewers can interact with the streamer by sending messages and making donations. This type of streaming has become increasingly popular over the last decade, with some streamers becoming household names.
Elements of Game Streaming Customization
Stream Customization includes a range of elements that can help you improve the Stream’s brand, profile and channel performance.
- Streaming Setup – is the process of setting up your computer, streaming software, and other related software and hardware to live stream your gaming sessions. Elements such as graphics card, streaming software (such as OBS or XSplit), microphone, camera, internet connection, firewall and more are all considered in setting up a successful Stream..
- Stream logos – are custom graphics that are used to represent a streamer’s channel. They are typically used as part of a streamer’s branding, and typically include the streamer’s name, logo, or other graphical elements. Stream logos are usually displayed prominently in the streamer’s profile, and can be used to give viewers a better idea of what to expect from the streamer’s content. Stream logos are also often used in channel overlays, which are graphics that are displayed over the streamer’s video and can help to further customize their stream.
- Stream Banners – are large graphical elements positioned right at the top of your channel page. Because of its size and prominence, a stream’s banner can be one of the best ways to attract viewers and creating an awesome first impression. Banners normally include information like your name, channel URL, logo, schedule, partners, sponsors and social media tags.
- Stream Thumbnails – are reduced size images of a specific frame depicting an item, event or scene in a video. Thumbnails are important as they are often the first thing a potential viewer sees when visiting your content. So, spending some time to make sure your thumbnails are effective at attracting viewer’s clicks is definitely worth the effort.
- Stream Badges – are another graphical element made up of image, text and graphics. They tend to be smaller in size and are normally strategically positioned as a visual award, to show recognition and status. Badges are a way that you can use to reward your viewers and subscribers, incentivize subscriber loyalty, build community and strengthen your brand.
- Stream Emotes – are small images that streamers and their viewers use to convey emotions, responses, or opinions during live streams. They often make use of custom illustrations, art, or even the streamer’s face depicting different emotions, moods, or action. Emotes are similar to emojis but are more specifically directed toward streaming, its terms and memes.
- Stream Overlays – are simply the layering of one input on top of another input. Overlays are made up of various graphic elements such as frames, text, images, icons, transitions, etc., that are placed on top of a video live stream. Examples include website URLs, hashtags, streamers identification and more.
- Stream Panels – are information-rich graphics that typically appear below a live stream video on your stream profile page. You can use these panels to organize and present more information and facts about the streamer and the channel. Stream panels are used to provide viewers with important information about the streamer, such as their social media handles, donation links, or gaming setup. They can also be used to add visual flair to your stream and make it more interesting for viewers.
- Stream Screens – are also referred to as ‘scenes’ and allow alternate visual layouts for your broadcasts. Screens are useful to let your viewers know what is going on when streamers are away from the camera. Stream scenes are often used to create a more professional look and provide viewers with a better understanding of what to expect from the stream. Stream scenes can also be used to add visual flair as well as make it easier for viewers to navigate around the stream. For example, starting soon screens give viewers a chance to slowly trickle in, chat, and get comfortable before a stream begins, while Be Right Back (BRB) screens are displayed when streamers step away from the stream.
- Stream Alerts – are visual notifications that appear in a streamer’s stream to alert viewers when something happens, such as when a new follower subscribes or donates. Stream alerts are typically used to acknowledge and thank viewers for their support, and can also be used to highlight important announcements or events. Stream alerts can also be used to add visual flair to a stream and make it more engaging for viewers. You can have a mixture of sound alerts, graphics alerts, and even animated video clips.
- Stream Animations – are visual effects or animations that are used to enhance the look and feel of a live stream broadcast. Stream animations are typically used in the form of overlays, which are graphics or animations that appear on top of the video stream. They are often used to add a professional touch to broadcasts, as well as to provide interactive elements for the viewers.
- Stream Transitions – are visual effects or transitions used to switch between different scenes or sources in a live stream, such as between a game and an intermission screen. Stream transitions are typically used in streaming platforms such as Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook Live to create a more engaging and professional-looking broadcast. Stream transitions can range from simple fades and wipes to more complex animation effects. Stream transitions can also be used to switch between different camera angles or shots during a broadcast.
- Stream Watermarks – are digital watermarks that are embedded into streaming video game content to help identify the source of the game. Watermarks are used to prevent unauthorized use of game streams and help protect the intellectual property of game developers. Game stream watermarks are usually embedded into the video stream in a way that is hard to detect or remove, and often include data such as the game’s title and the streamer’s name or ID.
- Stream Optimization – refers to techniques used to improve the Stream’s overall performance. This can involve a variety of methods, such as selecting the best encoding settings, limiting scene and source counts, and using GPU encoding. Additionally, using features like NVIDIA’s GameStream can help optimize game streaming by reducing latency, improving image quality, and allowing for a better gaming experience.
- Stream Marketing – involves creating and executing strategies, plans, tactics and a set of co-ordinated activities to grow your Stream’s audience and improve its performance.
