How To Live Stream From Xbox One To YouTube Or Twitch

A post about gaming it is quite unusual for PureSourceCode but we can’t work all the time. When the quarantine started, I bought an Xbox and for the first time in my life, I started to play games! So, I want to share my frustration 🙂 with you. I found a way to do live stream from my Xbox One to YouTube and Twitch. I explain here how.

What do you need?

An Xbox One, A Mixer Account Linked to Your Microsoft Account, an account on the service you want to Stream to and a good web browser to setup everything, using a PC for the setup is recommended but you can also do it from your mobile or tablet.

Setup the restream service

Using your favourite web browser go to airca.st and register yourself to the platform. It is free for one restream channel. After completing the registration and your email is verified, you have access to your dashboard.
