If you’re a Streamlabs Desktop user wondering how to use a stream overlay from this site, then you’ve got it pretty easy, as 90% of our Premium Downloads feature setup files to make it a breeze.
As mentioned, it’s as simple as importing a single file. Here’s a video demonstrating how to use a stream overlay with a Streamlabs Desktop setup file:
The reason these are grouped together is because beyond Streamlabs Desktop it’s largely the same process – dragging and dropping.
This is normally because there is nothing to show. If you’ve yet to have any subs, or donations, these will remain blank until there is info to display.
Once again, this is more straightforward than with OBS Studio or xSplit, but not one-click like the rest of the overlay. Alerts are account-tied, so you’ll be required to add the alerts included in your download to your Streamlabs account in order to use them. Follow the steps below to do so.
Some customers, especially those using Streamlabs Desktop on Mac, have reported issues with adding alerts through Streamlabs Desktop. There’s still hope, though, as you can get them to appear in the app, but you’ll need to bypass it for now.
These are grouped together again as they’re ultimately similar steps. Whatever alerts service you choose, be it Streamlabs, or Stream Elements, will provide you with a URL for you to use. This acts as like a stage, to show all alerts through.
Perhaps you’ve got an issue on how to use a stream overlay you’re not seeing answered above, get in contact with the site.
With over 150 stream graphics available, this can all get a little overwhelming. Perhaps you don't know your Twitch overlays from your stream alerts, or what exactly Professional Customisation means on our stream design pages. Well, take a look at our guides section.
