Stream alerts are an automated way to thank your viewers for following, donating, and subscribing. While alert services each offer a wide variety of ways to configure their alerts, adding any of them to OBS Studio is a simple and straightforward process.
The first step in adding alerts to your stream is to pick an Alert Provider. By connecting your streaming account with their website, they can get the information about your new followers, subscribers and more. You then embed their Alert Overlay in OBS Studio.
Some examples of Alert Providers with free alerts services:
On your chosen Alert Provider's website, you can choose the type of alerts to show, change the images that display, change the sounds that are used, etc. See the Alert Provider's website and documentation for more details.
Common Alert Overlays include:
|Alerts||Shows each event as it happens. For example: "So-and-so just subscribed at Tier 1!"|
|Events List||Shows a listing of the last few most recent events|
|Chat Box||Shows the content of the stream chat|
|Labels||Shows one piece of information, such as the latest follower, latest subscriber, etc.|
|Cup||Shows a cup that is filled with icons that represent different kinds of events|
Once you've got your account set up and configured some alerts, you're ready to add them to OBS Studio.
Click OK to save your changes and your new alert will be in your scene.
