    If you are happy with everything it’s time to add alert box URL in your streaming program, let’s say it’s OBS Studio 

    You can also use SLOBS or OBS.Live it’s almost the same set up in all of them.

    copy url and add in the streaming program

    Click on + , then click Browser and name it something like, “Stream Alerts/ Alert Box/ My super cool alerts”.

    Now paste the URL that you got from your alert app into the URL section.

    Adjust the Width, Height and make sure that you check, Shutdown source when not visible, because  you will still hear your alert notification sounds when you hide your alert browser source.

    Click OK, and now you will have your alerts added to OBS.

    You can move and resize the browser source around to place it wherever you want the alerts to show up on your stream.

    If you want to edit alert just repeat all steps from the start 🙂
