Today, Streamlabs is announcing Streamlabs Music, a worry-free way to play copyright-free music on a live stream in Streamlabs Desktop. Powered by Lickd, a music licensing platform for streamers and content creators, all tracks are fully licensed and safe for live streaming on Twitch, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, and more. Streamlabs Music is free and available from the Streamlabs App Store.
Paul Sampson, Chief Executive Officer, Lickd said: “We are delighted to be working with Streamlabs to build a bespoke product that will provide streamers with pre-cleared stock music to use on their livestreams. Streamlabs’ impressive technology and growing business pipeline inherently aligns with Lickd’s growing reputation as the go-to music platform for streamers. We look forward to joining thousands of streamers and empowering them with new ways to both engage with fans and expand their audience.”
It’s no secret that copyright claims are a common issue for live streamers. Copyright infringement and DMCA takedowns can result in channel bans and penalties. Streamlabs Music only curates tracks from Lickd’s licensed music catalog to ensure that streamers are always safe to stream.
“Streamlabs Music not only streamlines the process of sourcing and using music but also reduces copyright claims,” said Streamlabs Head of Product Ashray Urs. “This feature is significant given the number of streamers who are currently incorporating music into their streams daily. Streamlabs is taking proactive steps to help streamers adhere to copyright laws and protect both streamers and artists.”
With Streamlabs Music, streamers now have an expansive library at their fingertips with more than 20 different playlists ranging from EDM and Indie to game-inspired playlists such as Minecraft and Call of Duty. No matter what type of content a streamer creates, streamers can find the perfect playlist for any given stream.
“Streamlabs Music is essential for any creator wanting to avoid DMCA takedowns,” said Matt Heafy, lead singer of Trivium and Twitch streamer. “With tons of free music to choose from, this is the best option out there — and that’s coming from a musician.”
Streamlab Music is free from the Streamlabs App store, and creators can use it in Streamlabs Desktop without any additional software or setup; simply open Steamlabs Desktop, install it from the App Store, register, and press play.
