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 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

Starting Soon Screens, Stream Alerts, and more

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 Twitch Overlay 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.
