Question / Help Unnable to access channel


New Member
First off, here's the log file.

I've gone through and set up most of my settings to about what I think they should be, and when starting the stream, I'm getting this error:


I'm pretty sure I have the stream key right. (Copied it and immediately pasted it.) Am I supposed to log out of Twitch and/or close my browser? Could being connected to Twitch chat through my IRC client be causing the issue?

Basic info:
Mac OSX 10.9.1
OBS version 0.8.3

Figured it out myself!

When copying the stream key, it got copied over with spaces on either side, causing it to act as an invalid key.

So, ProTip, paste into a text editor, remove those spaces if they exist, and then paste without the spaces into OBS.

I'll see if I can get rid of the spaces automatically, kind of dumb that I didn't program it to do that when making it.
