3. In the Hotkey settings, set a hotkey for saving the replay buffer.

  • For this guide, we'll use Ctrl+Shift+S. 
  • Using this hotkey you can still save replays normally, even with Instant Replays setup.

6. Now your Instant Replay feature is ready.

  • Simply press the hotkey combination you just chose, and the last 30 seconds will play in the media source.
  • You can now resize the source and move it around.

If you have a control device such as a Stream Deck, you can create a hotkey action;

  • Set the hotkey to the same as in Streamlabs Desktop, and then you have the power of instant replay at the press of a button.
