Thinking of how to Broadcast PlayStation 4 Game on YouTube, Twitch & Beam? If you love playing games on PS 4, then you will also like to see watching other people playing on PS 4. It’s cool stuff that people are watching you online while you are playing your favorite game on PS 4. So, there is the little messy problem comes to you that how to stream PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 pro gameplay online over YouTube, Twitch, or Dailymotion. First, you need to play a game, so hold on other work for the rest and let’s do this thing. Here I’m playing ‘The Last of Us Remastered’ the best game ever and testing on PlayStation 4.
Time to start your game Broadcasting
Once you start your game then press the share button on the controller and jump into the share menu. From here scroll down the list, and you will see “Broadcast Gameplay” option.
To broadcast your gameplay online click on this option through controller device. Clicking by the controller is fun stuff. As you click the button, then a Broadcast menu will appear on the screen with some networking service options to stream gameplay. Here you will see three broadcasting options Twitch, YouTube, and Dailymotion. In this article, I’m choosing to broadcast on YouTube for simplicity, but the process is same for Twitch and Dailymotion, as well.
Once you have selected your network, it will ask you for sign into that service. Go ahead and get started with log in. You have to do all this thing through the controller; it is fun to type with a controller.
If you are using YouTube as I am using, then you have to move to the YouTube website for few settings. Now you have to log in again because it does not remember your credentials.
Basically, in this step, you have to prove that you are a person who wants to broadcast gameplay. Now I had to verify my account via text message, this step may or may not require for you because it may be possible you have already confirmed your account due to some other reasons then you should escape this step and go ahead. Once your account gets verified, then you can go back to broadcast menu.
Now you will see some options like ‘Include Microphone Audio in Broadcasts,’ ‘Display Message to Spectators and Spectators Comment.’ If you have a headset and wants to respond viewer comments and talk about the gameplay as well as If you would like to show off some other people comments, then tick that option. Similarly, you can tick the box ‘Include Video from PlayStation Camera in Broadcast’ if you have PS 4 camera and want to show off some of your pretty mugs to the audience.
You can also choose title name, add some description and change the broadcast quality. Your internet connection should be high enough so that it can satisfy your broadcast quality preferences. At the same time, you would like to choose high-resolution screen but you should keep up balance because it’s not too pixelated.
After little scrolling down you fill find an option to share your gameplay stream on Facebook with your friends. If you had already connected your Facebook account to PlayStation account, then this step will simple for you. If you are not connected your Facebook account, then it will take some time in the login process and link both accounts. That mean you have to type more with your controller.
If you decide to share your gameplay stream on Facebook, you can also opt to share with your friend and make the stream public.
Well done you are near to finish at that point. Now click the “Start Broadcasting” button.
If you have chosen to see spectator’s comments, you can see it on the right-side panel of the gameplay. And one thing keeps in remind this gameplay screen you are watching is streaming online on YouTube.
During gameplay, if you want to do some changes on your broadcasting then go to share menu, select “Broadcast Settings” and apply the same procedure.
In the given menu, you can stop your gameplay broadcasting once you have finished. Note that in advance setting menu you are disabled to see viewer comments, change the display settings and audio settings.
Now I ended up getting caught up in The Last of Us. It is an amazing experience for me. I enjoyed at my greatest. Well, it was a bit sticky to log in on accounts, but when you play, again you will find streaming a bit smoother.
