Streaming advice


Recommended Posts

I think there are a couple of things that , while irrelevant on the surface, could greatly improve the experience for everyone


- Chat screen placement

Phil, you might have noticed by now that having to look away from the tv screen just to read the chat is not the most comfortable way to do it. 

Most streamers I watch (think those with ~2000 viewers who still care about interacting with the audience) use a 2nd monitor for the chat, fullscreen, and place it right where they can see it without having to move their heads. 


- Shoutouts, interaction

I understand that you want the youtube audience to understand what's going on when you interact with chat, but since yt is just an archive at this point you might as well skip that step and just talk to the guy posting as if he was there not just with you, but also with us the viewers. In a word, make it more natural.

So, rather than reading the entire post/tip message out loud and then add your reply, you just  reply to the message in a way that others understand, or just say "thanks" if you have nothing to add to the superchat/tip message. The purpose of this change is to make interaction more seamless for everyone.

For example, if I superchat 5 RUB with "Yo brother, is the game is good?"

you can just say "no kill-chan the game is dogshit. thanks for the tip I appreciate that"

rather than what you do now which is something along the lines of "Ok so kill-chan tipped me 5 of some currency I don't know... and says 'yo brother is the game good?' well, no the game is dogshit. thanks for the tip I really appreciate that".

It's very subtle but, do you see the difference?

 Instead of a prestream, discuss all the things you enjoy talking about on the prestream while you're gaming, get a discussion going, ask people about their thoughts and feelings,


Right! Often times he'll complain about the playthrough going on for too long and the chat not talking to him... and then he'll spend +1h on the prestream (that  If he played the game instead of doing that he'd be done with all the games he's playing right now) to discuss all the topics during that prestream so there's nothing to talk about during the rest of the stream.
