Stream Overlay vs Stream Package

Stream Overlay vs. Stream Package - which one is for you?

If you're totally new to streaming there can be a little confusion when browsing the site as some folks may see the term "stream overlay" as a catch all for everything related to your stream. An overlay is actually just a section, and one of many parts that make up a stream package, although it is arguably the most important part!

Your Twitch overlay goes right over the top of your most important stream content, whether that's gameplay, a browser, or a cam. Its purpose is to enhance that content and give it a sense of style and identity consistent with your vibe as a channel. If you're interested in taking an in-depth look at how to use a stream overlay then this article may be helpful.

What else makes up a stream package?

Stream Screens

These are full-window graphics that normally occupy their own scenes in OBS Studio or Streamlabs Desktop, and feature messaging to let viewers know a stream is starting or ending, or that you'll BRB.

Profile Banner & Avatar Templates

Keeping your stream branding and identity consistent beyond your live stream, these are provided to easily edit and use on Twitch, social media, and anywhere else you'd like to keep your visuals consistent. Alternatively, these can be edited for you as part of Professional Customisation orders.

Profile Panels

Profile panels (also referred to as profile graphics, or profile headings) are graphics for the about section of your channel. Once again, ensuring the look and vibe of your channel carries from online to offline.

Import .OVERLAY files for easy setup

Quick & easy stream overlay setup in Streamlabs Desktop with .OVERLAY files

Most of our premium overlays & packages feature a .OVERLAY file, allowing you to very quickly and easily install your download in essentially one click on Streamlabs Desktop.

What is a .OVERLAY file?

.OVERLAY files are package files specific to Streamlabs Desktop, they allow you to export/import all your scenes and the contents within them, placing it all in just one file.

Can I use a .OVERLAY file with OBS Studio or OBS.Live?

No, .OVERLAY files are specific to Streamlabs Desktop. However, you can still install everything you find in a premium download to either OBS Studio or OBS.Live. These downloads use standard graphics and video types, so it's all fully compatible. The process will be a little more manual, as you'll need to drag elements in and arrange them yourself.

Understanding Twitch Overlay Downloads

What is a stream overlay?

A stream overlay is, on a basic level, the graphics you see over the top of someone's gameplay and/or webcam when you're watching a stream. It's likely the most used part of any Stream Package you'll find here.

It's normally things like a header featuring the streamer's name, a border around the webcam, and smaller info panels to show off Latest Followers, or social media names. These are provided as .PNG, .GIF, and .WEBM files.

In a lot of the Premium Downloads available here on the site you'll find a .OVERLAY file included, this file allows you to import the design in just one click to the Streamlabs Desktop streaming software.

You can check if a download includes a .OVERLAY file by looking under the Download Details section of any item page.

Starting Soon Screens & Stream Alerts

Starting soon screens (also BRB screens, and Stream Offline screens) probably require little explanation - these are graphics and animations that fill your Scenes in OBS Studio or Streamlabs OBS, designed to keep viewers updated when you're not on-screen. They normally come as .JPG images, or .WEBM & .MP4 video files.

Stream alerts are little graphics (often animated) that pop up on screen during streams shouting out viewers who've followed, subbed, donated, or cheered. They're effective and engaging ways to make your audience feel valued. These are provided as .GIF, .PNG, or .WEBM files, all compatible with Streamlabs.

Twitch Banner & Avatar Templates

A Twitch banner is found on your profile page, while the avatar is used throughout the site. A number of stream packages on the site include matching stream banner & avatar templates you can easily edit with your own info.

These Twitch banner & avatar templates are normally provided as .PSD files for you to customise manually, or have the customised for you by selecting Professional Customisation when choosing a Buy Option.
