Stream labels are a great way to show your most recent followers, subscribers and donations on screen. Usually these will scroll through the last few events or just show the the single most recent person who carried out an event. It’s a great way to give some users a little recognition on your stream for supporting you.
In this tutorial we are going to show you how to set up Stream Labels in OBS Studio using Stream Elements and OBS. Let’s jump in and take a look.
How To Setup Stream Label/Most Recent Follower In OBS
Stream Elements has a feature built into their software which allows us to set this up really quickly. If you have not set up a Stream Elements account you will have to sign up before continuing with this tutorial.
Step 1 – Create An Events Rotator Widget (Stream Labels)
Inside Stream Elements they call their Stream Labels an Event Rotator. To set this up navigate to Streaming Tools –> Overlays Gallery –> Widgets — Event Rotator –> Create.
Once you click create you can decide whether or not you want to add it to an existing stream overlay you have or create a new. For this example I will be creating a new one. You can then click on continue and give your Theme a name (Events Rotator).
Now click on Create My Overlay. You will be presented with a link that we need to copy into OBS Studio so we can display our Stream Labels on stream
Step 2 – Add Your Events Rotator To OBS Studio
To add your events rotator to OBS Studio open your application and navigate to sources –> + –> Browser.
We now want to paste the link we got in the previous step into the URL Box of the browser source, set your width to 1800 and click OK.
Your Event rotator will now appear inside OBS and you can move it to your desired location.
Step 3 – Customise Your Stream Labels
We can now go ahead and customise our Stream Labels inside stream elements. To edit open up Stream Elements and navigate to Stream tools –> My overlays –> Edit on the overlay you just created.
When you open the editor navigate to the left hand side, scroll down and click on Custom Widget 1 and then click on settings. You can now edit the specific settings of your widget.
The settings here are pretty self explanatory. You can adjust how often the widget cycles through the different events. I think the default 5 seconds is about right and doesn’t really need adjusted.
You can then edit the fonts and colours of your widget if you want to change them up to match your brand.
Once you have set up your settings it will automatically update inside OBS Studio and go live to your stream the next time you are online.
You should now have stream labels/event rotator installed on your stream so your viewers are able to see when they take an action on stream. This is a small way to encourage more viewers to engage more with your stream. Good luck on your next stream.
