How To Play Twitch With League Of Legends

Twitch is the best place to start your streaming career. If you are an aspiring streamer and you love playing League of Legends, it is time that you sync both of them together. That way you can start streaming the game you love. 


We will show you how you can set up your Twitch channel to stream League of Legends. So, let’s get right to it.

Step 1

The first thing you need to do is download OBS studio. This is a software you can use when you are starting your streaming career. What you want to do is select the software and download it. Follow all the instructions and install it. 

Step 2

Open the OBS. It’s time to configure some settings. On the bottom right corner of the OBS, you will see the settings menu. Click on it and this menu will pop up. Select “Stream” It is the second tab option from the left menu. Set the server to Twitch. Under the Twitch server, you will see a different tab. This is the server tab. Here you can select the geographic location. Select the one that is the closest to your actual location. 

Step 3

Now, it’s time to get the Stream Key. To do that, go to the Twitch TV Dashboard. Press on the button that says “Show Key”. Once you’ve selected this option, you will automatically get a code that you will need to copy. 

Step 4

Go back to the OBS and paste that exact code in the empty “Stream Key” section. What the stream key does is links the Twitch program to the OBS. That’s what you want to do. 

Step 5

When you are done with all of that, go to the “Audio” tab. It is the fourth option from the left menu. What you want to work on is the “Desktop Audio Device” and the “Mic Auxiliary Device”. Select the mic and audio you are using. When you are done, select “OK”. 

Step 6

Now you are ready to start configuring the League of Legends game. For it to work, you need to be logged in the game. When you are done, go to the OBS and right-click in the “Sources” box. Select “Add”, go to “Window Capture” and select “OK”. 

Step 7

This is the window that will pop up. In the drop-down menu select the LOL client and press “OK”. 

Step 8

To start streaming, right-click on “Sources” again in the OBS. Go to “Add” and select “Game Capture”. Press “OK”. Now a new screen will pop up. Uncheck the first box and from the drop-down menu, select the LOL TM Client. Press “OK”. Now, the screen in OBS will be black. What you want to do is open LOL. Start a game or spectate a friend. Then, go to in-game settings and toggle window mode. Go back to the OBS and you will see the LOL stream has begun.


That’s it! Now you can see your League of Legends screen in the OBS. You can enlarge it by dragging the screen with the arrows, or you can make it smaller. As you can see, it took a couple of minutes to set it all up. But, it is worth it. Let us know if you found this guide helpful in the comments below.
