Alerts with StreamElements!
With our Premade design all alerts are ready for you, you don’t need to do anything if you like how it looks, if you want to add some personal touch like change font, font size, color, or add TTS settings it’s up to you feel free to edit them as you like.
We do recommend that in case you want to edit your alerts, to create duplicate of the alert overlay so you always have your alerts untouched, or in case you forgot to create it and you already started and now you want your default alerts from pack you can always click on the link you got in the Folder pack and your alert/overlays will be shared with you.
StreamElements has the six standard alert types (follower, donation, subscriber, cheer, host, and raid), and can be customized using different images/videos, text, and even custom CSS.
You can set up variation alerts also for each alert and use different images/videos, different text font, color, TTS…etc..
In our premade designs we do set up some variations for you so be sure to check them out and change them also if you want.
Before you go live be sure to test your alerts and all variations,
You can test them by clicking on the blue bell icon on the bottom left side.
Overlay link for browser source!
When you are finished with all edits and testing and you are ready to go live, you can follow this steps.
- Be sure to save your overlay by clicking SAVE on the bottom left.
- Click on the “Launch”
- New window will pop up where you will see your overlay link
- Copy the link and open OBS Studio or OBS Live (if you are using SLOBS you might have some problems cause they do not support StreamElements browser sources always so we can’t say it will work for you 100%)
- Click Add, then click Browser and name it something like, “Stream Alerts”.
- Now paste the URL that you got from your alert app into the URL section.
- Adjust the Width, Height, and FPS to your liking, and make sure to check, “Shutdown source when not visible”.
- Click OK, and now you’ll 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.
