Minecraft Adds One-Touch Twitch Streaming
Mojang is adding
one-touch Twitch.tv streaming to Minecraft
. At present, the feature is included in the Minecraft Snapshot 13w47c and is the result of a partnership between Mojang and Twitch.
At Minecon we announced our new partnership with Twitch
to bring one-click broadcasting to Minecraft. After a little wait, we’re now ready to make this publicly testable! This is the very first snapshot to include this functionality and it may be a little buggy, and we’re not finished with all the features yet, but hopefully it’ll be enough for you to play with and give feedback on!
Before you can start streaming, you will need to visit your Mojang account settings
and link a Twitch account to your Mojang account. Then in the game you may check the quality settings in Options -> Broadcast Options, or just go ahead and start broadcasting at any time by hitting F6. This key can be configured in the Controls options.
As this is only a snapshot, it's not yet in the final public update build just yet. You can still try it out through the Minecraft launcher. That is assuming you haven't been banned from Twitch
for some really BS reasons over these past couple of days.
