Want to set up your Twitch broadcast? I've got the quick steps to do so here.

As Gameskinny Editor Amy White wrote in her article earlier this week, it’s super easy to broadcast to Twitch on your PS4. It’s a four step process, in fact.

But how easy is it to connect your Twitch account to your PS4? Incredibly easy, it turns out. 

  1. Press Share Button
  2. Press Options Button
  3. Click on Share Settings
  4. Click on Broadcast Settings
  5. Click “Manage Account Information” 
  6. Save Twitch Info 

Once you’ve done that, you are just moments away from broadcasting. You simply press Share, click Broadcasting, and then click Twitch and you can start broadcasting immediately. 

Unless you disable it, you can see the amount of people watching you, the comments they’re giving on your play, and even tweet or Facebook your followers to let them know that there is a live stream going on. 

If you want to see your footage later, you’ll need to set Twitch up to archive it. Want to see that killer play in NBA 2K14? Hoping to show your friend how to get past that one spot in Killzone: Shadow Fall? On your PC or browser, simply follow these steps: 

  1. Log in to Twitch 
  2. Go to My Settings
  3. Click “Videos: 
  4. Under Videos, check the box for “Archive Broadcasts.” 

Keep in mind, these archives are no longer saved forever, so eventually they will go away. But if you’re looking for a quick recap of earlier play, it’s an easy system to get involved with. 

Having problems setting up Twitch on your PS4? I’ll try to answer your questions in the comments below. 

Oh, and you can find me on Twitch here.
