Facebook gaming video has 3 main ways by which you can go live with your gaming videos and these processes include the use of three third-party apps namely: Streamlab, OBS, and Xsplit. On our previous posts, we have discussed how to install all those apps in your system and get them ready to creating you’re for a first gaming video scene.

How To Create Your First Scene using Xsplit App

Xsplit app is another lovely third-party application which you can use to go live on Facebook gaming videos, We assume you already have the Xsplit app installed on your system ready to create your first scene if know sees how to install Xsplit app HERE and proceed to the steps below:

Select a scene

To put together a “scene” of the things you want your viewers to see, such as the game you’re playing, your webcam’s video feed, or custom overlays that you have. You can have multiple customized scenes and switch between them.
Click on “Scene 1”, you can rename it if you like.

Add a Gaming Source

You need to add a gaming source to your scene, to display the game you’re playing. There are two different sources you can use: Game Capture (recommended) and Screen Capture. Select one of these from the Add Source button.

Game Capture gets the feed from a single game and will work with games running in full screen or windowed.
Screen Capture captures an area defined by you on your monitor. It will capture everything that’s going on in that screen, including any pop-ups or notifications from Windows or other programs.
It’s a good idea to set your in-game resolution to the same resolution you are streaming.

Add other sources

Add your webcam, click Add source > Devices > Video, and select your camera. You can do some camera setting modifications here depending on your camera. If your webcam has a built-in mic this will default as the audio source. If you want to use a different mic, go to Tools > Settings >Audio and change the Microphone from the drop-down list.
Add any text with Add source > Text, and any logos/images with Add source > Media file.
To add any URL based overlays or other sources, go to Add source> Webpage, and input the URL.

Add Facebook Widgets

Add your live chat by clicking on Add Source > Facebook Widgets > Live Comments. You can add live reactions by clicking Add source >Facebook Widgets > Live Reactions Animation. These widgets will auto connect to your current live stream. You can customize the look, transparency, and source if you right click on them.
