How to set up a stream on PS4

Link your accounts to the PS4

  1. Using your controller, select "Settings."

  2. Select "Account Management."

  3. Select "Link with Other Services."

  4. Choose the service you want to use — either Twitch or YouTube.

  5. Follow the sign-in instructions. Both Twitch and YouTube make it easy to sign in with your existing account. However, you may need to use a computer or mobile device — Twitch, for example, asks you to enter a code into a web browser to confirm your identity and connect your PS4.


Stream a game on your PS4

  1. Start the game you want to stream. 

  2. Press the Share button on your controller. Don't hold the button down — just tap it once. 

  3. Select "Broadcast Gameplay."

  4. On the Broadcast Gameplay page, choose the streaming service you want to stream to — either Twitch or YouTube.

  5. Before you can start streaming, choose your video options. You can give the stream a title, for example, as well as choose your video quality. You can also scroll down to invite friends to the stream. If you have a Playstation installed, you can also include a live video of yourself in the stream.

  6. Select "Start Broadcasting."

You're now streaming video to the service you selected. 

How to stop streaming from your PS4

  1. When you're done broadcasting, press the Share button on the controller again. The Share menu should pop out from the side.

  1. If you need more support with your stream, head here - "Broadcast Settings."

  2. Select "Stop Broadcasting."
