How To Stream Mobile Video Games On Twitch

Step by step guide.

This post will show you how to set up Reflector 3 and OBS Studio on your PC to stream your games from your mobile device to your computer and then onto Twitch.

How to Stream Mobile Video Games on Twitch?

Because of the technological constraints of mobile devices, broadcasting a high-quality game stream to Twitch from a smartphone is more difficult than doing it from a console or PC.

You’ll need the following items in addition to your mobile device and the game you wish to play:

  • A computer that runs on either Windows or Mac
  • On your PC, a copy of the Reflector 3 application
  • On your computer, a copy of the free OBS Studio streaming software
  • A webcam is a device that allows you to see what
  • A sound recording device

How To Install Reflector 3?

You’ll need to get the film from your mobile device to show on your computer, which will then submit it to Twitch. It’s similar to how you must connect a Blu-ray player to your television in order to view a Blu-ray disc.

Reflector 3 is a tool that works on Windows and Mac computers to make them compatible with a variety of wireless projection technologies offered by iOS, Android, and Windows phones, including Google Cast, AirPlay, and Miracast. When utilising Reflector 3, you won’t need any cords or other gear.

After downloading Reflector 3 from its official website, install it on your computer and use one of the techniques below to wirelessly project your smartphone’s display onto the computer.

  • Swipe up from the bottom of your iOS device’s screen to open the Control Center. iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch: Swipe up from the bottom of your iOS device’s screen to open the Control Center. In the middle of the menu, press the AirPlay icon.
  • Android: Press the Cast icon in the Notifications Center on your Android phone or tablet. Once the programme is open, go to More Settings and pick your machine.

How to Set Up OBS Studio?

Download OBS Studio on your PC if you haven’t already. This is a widely used free application for broadcasting livestreams to Twitch.

You must link OBS Studio to your Twitch account once it has been installed in order for your broadcast to be transmitted to the correct location.

  1. On the official Twitch website, log in to your account.
  2. Select Dashboard > Settings > Stream Key from the drop-down menu.
  3. To copy this string of numbers to your clipboard, highlight it with your mouse, right-click on the text, and select Copy from the menu.
  4. Return to OBS Studio and choose Twitch under Settings > Streaming > Service.
  5. By right-clicking on the stream key and selecting Paste, you may paste it into the appropriate area.
  6. Anything you broadcast from OBS Studio now goes straight to your Twitch account.

How to add Media Sources to OBS Studio?

Ascertain that Reflector 3 is still open on your computer and that your mobile device is reflected there. You’ll now add Reflector 3 to OBS Studio, and your spectators will see your mobile games in this format.

  1. Click the + symbol under Sources at the bottom of OBS Studio.
  2. Select Reflector 3 from the drop-down box under Window Capture. Click the OK button.
  3. To get your new screen to look the way you want, use your mouse to move and resize it.
  4. Your viewers will see the full dark workspace, so if you want to make it more aesthetically appealing, you can import images by adding more sources using the manner described above.
  5. To add your webcam, go back to Sources and click the + symbol, but this time choose Video Capture Device. Select your webcam from the drop-down menu and click OK. It can be moved and resized to your preference.

Start Your Twitch Broadcast

When you’ve finished customising your dashboard, click the Start Streaming icon in the lower-right corner. Your camera footage, any images you’ve added, and your favourite mobile video game should now be visible to your Twitch audience.
