How to Use an External Webcam in Streamlabs Studio

Learn how to connect your external mic to Streamlabs Studio

With Streamlabs Studio, your console gameplay can become an engaging live stream in minutes. The new web-based broadcasting studio for console players combines chat, recent events, and alerts with the ability to display all of this information on top of game footage so you don’t miss out on any important details when you stream.

Of course, one of the most essential elements of any live stream is your webcam. While it is possible to pair your phone with Streamlabs Studio and use that as your webcam, we recommend plugging in your webcam directly into your Xbox. Doing this will reduce the latency and create a better experience for your viewers.

How to Add an External Webcam

To set up an external webcam to Streamlabs Studio, all you have to do is plug the webcam into one of your Xbox’s USB ports. Twitch will automatically detect your camera and add it to your live stream.

To do this, perform the following steps:

Step 1: Open the Twitch app on Xbox.

Step 2: Click on “Broadcast.”

Step 3: If you have a webcam plugged in, Twitch will allow you to adjust the “Camera Position.” 

Now when you go live, Twitch will automatically include your webcam in your broadcast.
