St. Jude PLAY LIVE is a cornerstone event on Tiltify, which is why we have developed our own customized PLAY LIVE overlays for the 2019 PLAY LIVE Prize Season (and will continue to update these every year!) Please remember that this is just an alternative overlay - you are still welcome to use our regular Tiltify overlay bar or integrations with Streamlabs, StreamElements, or StreamJar.


Topics Covered

  • Getting Your Overlay URL
  • Adding Your Overlay


Getting Your Overlay URL

To setup your custom overlay, first, we need to grab the URL for your Tiltify campaign. The URL for all PLAY LIVE alerts will be almost the same as your Tiltify campaign!


For example:


In other words, your overlay URL should look something like: http://customoverlays.tiltify.com/playlive/@YOUR_USERNAME/YOUR_CAMPAIGN_SLUG 


We have a few additional options you can add to the end of your overlay URL:


Adding Your Overlay


For OBS:

  • Add a new Browser Source in the Sources section of your OBS
  • Once you select Browser Source, give it a name!
  • After naming the source, you should see the settings window. It will look something like this:
  • Set the URL to the Overlay URL you made during the first step
  • Set the Width to at least 640. However, you can make this as wide as you want - we suggest 1280
  • Set the Height to 150
  • Set the FPS to be the same as your stream (i.e. 60 FPS for 60 FPS streams; 30 FPS for 30 FPS streams). If you stream lower than 30 FPS, we suggest you still keep the overlay at 30, otherwise it might break
  • Press OK - and re-position the overlay wherever you want! The overlay opens to the right, so we suggest aligning it to the left-hand side of the screen in the top or bottom corners.


For XSplit:

  • At the bottom left of XSplit, press the "add" button on the desired scene
  • Select "Webpage..."
  • Enter your Overlay URL from step 1 in the URL field
  • Press OK - and re-position the overlay wherever you want! The overlay opens to the right, so we suggest aligning it to the left-hand side of the screen in the top or bottom corners.
