Walk-through

The following walk-through will help you set up OBS - Open Broadcaster Software.  We assume you already have installed OBS(https://obsproject.com/wiki/install-instructions).


Step 1 - Create a new browser source


Create a new Source by clicking on the '+'. 

Select 'Browser' and name your source something you'll recognize :) (Ours is already made - Hence the "Add Existing")







Step 2 - Input your overlay URL


We currently have 3 overlays for you to choose from and can be found under your Campaign Dashboard --> Overlay:


Compact Overlay: The URL should look something like https://overlay.tiltify.com/@USERNAME/CAMPAIGN-NAME/overlay and looks something like this: 



Original Overlay: The URL should look something like https://tiltify.com/events/CAMPAIGN-NAME/overlay/dashboard and looks something like this:



Overlay 2.0: The URL should look something like https://tiltify.com/@USERNAME/CAMPAIGN-NAME/overlay and should look something like this: 



No matter which overlay you choose, you will want to copy the Overlay URL and paste it as your Browser URL on OBS:



Step 3 - Browser Source Size/Settings


For 720p Streams set your width to 1280.
For 1080p streams set your width to 1920.  


Height should be no less than 70 to avoid issues. 


The Compact Overlay is designed to stretch across 60% of the screen - while the Original and Overlay 2.0 are designed to stretch across the entire screen and placed at either the top or bottom.


Step 4 - Click OK!


Whichever overlay you choose, you should now see it on your stream setup - and It will automatically get donation data directly from your campaign!



Conclusion

OBS is a free and open source software for live streaming(https://obsproject.com/).  Following this simple walk-through you should be able to have a Tiltify overlay working on your stream in no time at all!
