Tips to Start Your Twitch Journey

Tips to Start Your Twitch Journey

You can stream your favorite retro games on twitch without any problem. If it is your first time using this platform, we recommend that you read the tips below to help you navigate the channel. Read on

Internet speed

If you are not on a fiber connection, do not worry. You only need a minimum of 5Mbps ADSL connection that supports a minimum of 720p. This applies to a router or modem. We advise new streamers to stream at 1800kbps. This is the minimum bare. If you are not a twitch partner, you must be on the top list of 10% streamers.


twitch overlayA good number of people like streaming with webcams. Twitch allows you to take shots at close intervals. This way, streamers will be clicking on your thumbnail to check out your streams. The thumbnail brings out the first impression. We all know the importance of the first impression. It is best if you invested in a good webcam.


A good microphone is a must if you are streaming on Twitch. Get a quality microphone which comes with noise cancellation feature. If you love it wireless, get something which will not interfere with other devices like WIFI or your mouse. It is advisable to use a wired connection when streaming on twitch


What is overlay? This is information sent to you at a glance. Some people go for OBS, but you can check out for paid alternatives like XSplit. It is possible to create an art Twitch overlays around the OBS. As you do this be sure to take into account the DotA game resolution. Bright overlays make your scenes more attractive and lively. Your scenes will never be boring with the overlays.


It is not advisable to compete with big streamers. I would advise that you stay away from popular games. To be ranked high on twitch you must have many viewers. At first, you can decide to give a long time ago game a try. Consider checking out for free games at first.

A teammate

DiscordSome people like to use Discord, not skype. Discord does not consume a lot of bandwidth compared to Skype. It is free. As many streamers do, talk to your teammate on Discord. Keep yourself updated on any developments on twitch. The technology world evolves every day, and you are better off if you work with the latest developments.

As mentioned above, a kid stands to gain a lot from playing with an RC car. As a parent, it is up to you to get them the best model to ensure they get maximum benefits.

The best way to make a choice is to learn from the experiences of other buyers and users by reading reviews made by parents and kids. Some sites also give buyers to leave ratings about cars they have used before. If possible, go for a model with the highest ratings or most positive reviews from customers.

The reputation of the manufacturer

The reputation of the manufacturer can be used to predict the quality, design, and features of the RC car. Here, you will be looking at things like awards and recognition they have garnered over the years. If possible, you also need to look at things like recalls that have been there, just to have an idea of the kind of reputation they enjoy in this market.
