Step 1: Install the OBS Studio Software
If you haven’t already done so, start by downloading and installing OBS Studio on your computer. OBS Studio is a free and open-source software that enables you to capture and stream content seamlessly.
Step 2: Launch OBS Studio
Once installed, launch OBS Studio on your computer. You will find yourself in the main interface of the software.
Step 3: Adding a New Source
To add your Discord server to OBS, you need to create a new source. Sources are the elements that appear on your live stream, such as video feeds, images, and overlays.
Follow these steps:
- Click on the “+” button in the “Sources” section at the bottom of the screen.
- Select “Browser” from the list of available sources.
- A pop-up window will appear. Give your source a name (e.g., “Discord Server”) and click “OK”.
Step 4: Configuring the Browser Source
After creating a new source, it’s time to configure it specifically for displaying your Discord server. Here’s how:
- In the properties panel on the right side of the screen, click on “Local file”.
- Navigate to your preferred web browser (e., Google Chrome) and open Discord Web.
- Login to your Discord account and navigate to the server you want to add to OBS.
- Copy the URL from the address bar of your browser.
- Head back to OBS Studio and paste the URL into the “URL” field of the browser source properties panel.
- Adjust the width and height of the source if necessary, using the options provided. You can also choose to enable or disable hardware acceleration, depending on your system’s capabilities.
Step 5: Preview and Adjust
Now that you have added your Discord server as a source in OBS, it’s time to preview it and make any necessary adjustments. Follow these steps:
- In OBS Studio, click on the “Preview Stream” button located at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
- A new window will appear, displaying your live stream preview along with all added sources.
- Look for your Discord server source and ensure it is visible on screen as desired.
- If needed, go back to OBS Studio, right-click on your Discord server source in the “Sources” section, and select “Transform”. From there, you can resize, reposition, or apply any other transformations required.
Step 6: Start Your Live Stream
Once you are satisfied with how your Discord server appears in OBS Studio’s preview window, it’s time to start your live stream! Click on “Start Streaming” in OBS Studio’s main interface and enjoy interacting with your viewers through Discord while streaming content simultaneously!
Congratulations! You have successfully added a Discord server to OBS Studio. Now you can engage with your audience in real-time during live streams, creating a more interactive and immersive experience for everyone involved.
