Do I have to log in to Twitch in order to use mtion?

Nope! You can use mtion in offline mode without logging into Twitch, however when in offline mode you won't be able to use interaction features for livestreaming platforms like Twitch/YouTube.

What livestreaming platforms do mtion support?

If you are just using mtion for the immersive environment, you can use it for any platforms since mtion outputs virtual camera feed. This means any livestreaming platforms, as well as Discord calls, Google meet, Zoom etc.

If you also want your viewers to play/interact in your virtual environment directly in chat when you are livestreaming, you will need to be either on Twitch or YouTube as these are the only two platforms that are currenty integrated with mtion. Other platform integrations might be planned in the future and we will make announcement when that happens.

How do I stream from mtion?

mtion outputs virtual camera feed. You can add a "video capture device" source in OBS and select "mtion virtual camera" and that's it! Whatever mtion camera you change to, it will automatically show in OBS.

Can I co-stream with someone in my mtion clubhouse?
