Twitch chat overlay in OBS on Mac

obs

#1

I’m going to be reposting my streams to YouTube and want to include the Twitch chat in the video so people know what I’m responding to. I know that a popular plugin is KapChat, but that appears to be a Windows application (the instructions say to run the batch file to install). Is there a preferred method of setting this up in OBS on a Mac? I’d love to be able to customize the look of it somehow, maybe with CSS considering most of these plugins are essentially a chrome-less Chrome window.

All the plugins basically do the same thing: connect to twitch chat via IRC and set the background to a chromakeyed color. You could do the same thing manually with an irc client.

Get one that supports themes (Limechat, for example) and set it to a theme that looks good for your stream, then key out the background.

TwitchAlerts is a great program for this i currently use it to show when someone follows my stream so i can thank them. It also has a good text box feature that works flawlessly. It all runs via a clr browser to take chat and data and such. not sure if mac has clr browsers but i would assume so. Its all pretty easy with some tutorials on youtube. Also no need to chromakey anything out.

@vocino plans to implement this into command?

Lol I’m tripping. I’ve yet to have any interactions with @shane so i just assumed he was just another streamer like me. Glad to know what he does around here.
