Runescape announced the release of Araxxor, a new boss ready to tear you a new one. So that no one misses your heroic triumph (or grisly demise), one-click Twitch broadcasting is included in the update. That’s right, all the tools you need to broadcast your whip cracking adventures are built right into Runescape.
The Twitch broadcasting integration includes resolution, bandwidth, microphone, and webcam settings. You’ll also have the option to view and interact with your Twitch channel’s chat.
Also included is the ability to see other top Runescape broadcasts from within the game client.
Here’s a walkthrough from the good folks at Jagex:
We’re thrilled with the feedback we’ve gotten on Host Mode! A number of questions that have come up over the last 24 hours, and we’d like to take some time to answer them. We’ve also added this video on how Host Mode works. Check it out!
How do I activate host mode?
Type /host channelname into your chat. For example, to share the Twitch Weekly show, you would type: /host twitch
Wargaming today announced the WG Stream mod, which allows World of Tanks and World of Warplanes players to broadcast gameplay directly to your Twitch channel with one simple click.
No matter what your skill level, WG Stream mod has been designed for ease of use. The intuitive interface allows you to assign hotkeys to manage the broadcast and offers a variety of settings to optimize broadcast quality.
Introducing Host Mode – a new way to share live channels without leaving the comfort of your home chatroom.
What is Host Mode?
Imagine you’re done broadcasting for the day, and about to go offline. Rather than just signing off, Engage Host Mode! Your chatroom remains entirely the same, but your video player is replaced with an embedded version of whichever channel’s stream you decide to host. Now you and your chat community can continue to hang out even after you’ve gone offline.
Host mode gives a broadcaster the ability to host another channel’s live broadcast on his or her own channel page. Any broadcaster can host another channel, and any channel can be hosted. It works just like using an embedded player on another website, except it works directly on Twitch.
If you’ve ever wanted to share your awesome tablet video game skills with the rest of the world, your time has come!
The NVIDIA SHIELD tablet is the first mobile device to integrate Twitch broadcasting. This means that virtually any Android game running on the SHIELD tablet can be broadcast to Twitch with a few simple taps.
While Minecraft collaborative Let’s Play servers have been around since almost the conception of the game, few have so quickly risen to extreme popularity. Drenched in humorous but seriously devoted lore, Mianite is one of those servers (recently attracting 100k viewers to one stream alone, making it the most watched game on Twitch at the time!).
Comprised of three factions, the server has brought together YouTubers and Twitch broadcasters to collaborate and compete to make their faction the strongest. Mianite, the “good” team, is comprised of IIJerichoII and OMGitsfirefoxx, who are constantly wrapped up in battling the “bad” Dianites Nadeshot and Syndicate. Of course, there’s always Ianite and its sole supporter, CaptainSparklez, who attempts to keep the balance between the two, along with a number of guests and special appearances.
We want you to be able to watch Twitch from anywhere, regardless of the device you’re using. That’s why we decided to update our mobile web channel page.
- If you have a scheduled inVideo Promotion that appears during the first 13 seconds of your YouTube video, we will offset this promotion to start at 14 seconds.
- This allows for the Twitch Live Annotation to appear at 3 seconds and last for 10 seconds.
We’ve been humbled by the response so far to V1 of Twitch Live Annotations. In going through all your feedback, we found some common questions that we wanted to address.
Please note:We have discovered a YouTube bug that prevents annotations from showing sometimes. We’re working with YouTube’s team to iron this out as quickly as possible and will keep you updated. Thank you for your patience!
Letting your audience know when you go live can be a lot of work. Chances are you maintain a presence on at least one social network, potentially two, if not three or four (we can keep counting … five, six, seven …). Our goal is to help you reach as many of these networks as quickly and easily as possible, each time you go live.
You can already manage your Twitch account so that your Twitch, Twitter, and Facebook followers are alerted when you begin a broadcast. Now, we’re excited to introduce a powerful new way to alert your audience: Twitch Live Annotations for YouTube.
Spam is bad, m’kay? We hate spam. (Well, we kinda like musubi, so maybe not spiced ham.) We’ve created a spam shield in Messages called the “Other” folder, which will have messages from users we aren’t convinced that you want to hear from. It’s not perfect, so you should still check it periodically to make sure a “good” message didn’t want you. We’ll get better at getting all of your good messages into the inbox, so thanks for your patience.
Remember when y’all went crazy like Sander Cohen for TwitchPlaysPokemon (still going strong!), and then helped Choice Chamber make its Kickstarter goal, and soon after started dropping chat commands into streams of Daylight and Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition? Well, the Twitch Play Game genre is about to get its latest chatsourced challenge thanks to CrowdPlay from Overwolf.
CrowdPlay is a toolset that lets all of you play games together by entering commands into the chat (sound eerily familiar?). But the difference is Overwolf plans to simplify the process by building tools to enable any of you with a basic level of tech savvy to set up your own CrowdPlay events.
If you hop on over to Overwolf’s TwitchCrowdPlay channel, they are previewing this feature with Final Fantasy VI as an example of what you can soon construct with Overwolf’s tools. (Be sure to scroll below the video player for more info.) Will it be chat-astrophic or chat-tastic? Whatever it is, let’s hope you have better play on words to describe it.

As some of you have already noticed, we’ve been experimenting with new ways to discover Counter-Strike: Global Offensive broadcasters. We’ve wanted to try using game metadata – organized information that describes what’s happening inside of a broadcast – to augment the standard Twitch experience for some time. With the cooperation and help of Valve, we’re excited to bring you the first version of an advanced directory, one which we hope will make it easier to find interesting content.
Amazon Fire TV just got game! You can now get the Twitch app on Amazon Fire TV and turn your big screen TV into your personal gaming theater.
One rainy April day, we opened the gates in front of HQ and grabbed a few people on the street to ask them what new things they’d like to see from Twitch. Most shrieked, “Why are you touching me?!” We got sad and ran back inside vowing to never venture into the outside world again.

Later that day, the rain slowed and the sun appeared full and bright. And there appeared a rainbow. Then it hit us: Rainbow Kappa. That would make the people happy and free them from their black and white
