Minecraft 1.7.4 brought the epic new feature of no longer needing a streaming program to livestream Minecraft to Twitch.TV. It's now all built in, and really easy to setup!

Image
  • A migrated account (this means you login using your email, not your username)
  • A Twitch.TV account



Image
The first thing you need to do to stream to Twitch is to link your Twitch and Mojang.com accounts.


  1. Visit http://account.mojang.com, click login, and enter your email and password. You might have to enter the answer to your security question, and agree to the Terms of Service once you've done this.

    Image
  2. Click "view account settings".

    Image
  3. Click "Connect to your Twitch account"

    Image

  4. If you're not already, you'll be asked to login to Twitch. When you've done that, authorize the connection.

    Image


Your Mojang account is now linked to your Twitch.TV account!


Image
Now your accounts are linked, it's time to setup the your streaming options.

  1. Open Minecraft, login, pause the game, click settings, then click broadcast settings.

    Image


  2. You'll now hopefully see a screen like this:

    Image

    Here's what each setting does:

    Quality - sets how high the quality of your stream is. Lower quality = less intensive on PC/network.
    Framerate - Controls how many FPS the stream will be capped at.
    Bandwidth - sets how much data you'll allow streaming to send/receive per second over your network
    Mic Volume - Control how loud your microphone is for viewers
    System Volume - Controls how loud MInecraft/other programs will be in the stream
    Send Metadata - Controls if metadata is sent with your stream
    Push To - Controls if your PTT key makes your microphone enabled or disabled
    Compression - Controls how much your stream is compressed before being sent to Twitch
    Enable Chat Whilst - Controls when your Twitch.TV channel's chat is visible in-game
    User Filter - Controls who's messages on your Twitch channel's chat are visible in-game
    Broadcast Server List - Allows you to choose which Twitch server to broadcast to

  3. You might also want to open the control settings and change the streaming controls.

    Image



Image
Now you've done all the hard work, it's time to stream! Simply press your Start/Stop Stream key (default F6), and you'll stream to the account you specified earlier!

The screenshot for step 1 of Setting it Up now has the red box around Broadcasting Settings, not super secret settings like it used to (whoops, not sure how that happened...).

I migrated my account weeks ago, and it STILL says that I have to migrate my account.






I checked my email...made sure I was connected to twitch through mojang, restarted, reinstalled, but everytime I go there it asks me to migrate my account.






Any ideas?

Do you have to have a program like soundflower to use twitch? I have a mic, but I'm on windows and I've yet to find a good one like soundflower.

I need help,
I can't seem to livestream at all,
Like after a few minutes or seconds it being live on my twitch.tv,

I even tried to change the settings up a notch,
it still didn't work, 
I already have soundflower installed,
to make it work,  But what do i have to do?

It just crashes.
Is there anything that i can change to make this not crash?
I'm on a mac 10.7.5 Lion

Same here.  I start the brodcast and it says somthing in the chat then it changes to an error message and the thing in the corner of the screen disappears.  I press F6 again and it restarts the thing and then it repeats.  It is also a bit more laggy when it is on even though it does not work.

Do you mean the stream stutters, or it makes your game lag?

If the stream's stuttering, chances are you've setup your streaming options wrong, and your computer/network can't handle them. Try turning down the amount of bandwidth and quality.

If your client itself becomes laggy (not the stream), then the problem's probably within your PC.

It doesn't lag when I'm using Xsplit, but when I tried the inbuilt live streamer it did. =P
(this don't really matter anymore though since I bought Xsplit premium yesterday) But thanks for your time =D

Have you only just connected your accounts, or have they been connected for a while?

If it's a new connection, I'd try waiting a few hours. No guarantees it'll fix it, but I've heard that it might. :)

Great, but when I compare my game to the live, there's 20 seconds between the time I place a bloc and when I see it on the live... :(

OBAMCraft

December 12, 2013, 6:14 am

That's pretty normal for streaming (in fact, 20 secs isn't bad). It takes time for your computer to get what you're seeing, send it off to Twitch, then Twitch has to receive it, and work out what to do with it. Really, a delay is unavoidable. :)

It can very much depend on your network - but a delay is completely normal.
