What is an OBS overlay?
An OBS overlay (aka stream overlay, or twitch overlay) is a collection of graphics to enhance your stream on sites such as Twitch, YouTube Gaming, Facebook and Gaming. These graphics are placed over your gameplay and/or webcam to add a unique style and pop to your stream content.
How do I add these designs to my stream?
To apply these elements PC or Mac streaming software such as Streamlabs Desktop or OBS Studio is required. Alternatively, there are services like Lightstream providing cloud-based tech for streaming if you don't have access to a PC or laptop.
At Twitch Overlay we use common image and video types, such as .PNG, .GIF, and .WEBM in our downloads. This means most of our stream overlays are compatible with all the services mentioned previously, plus any others that allow you to add images or videos to your stream.
