Hmm. I have recently seen that Mojang implemented streaming in Minecraft. Usually when I stream Minecraft I drop a lot of frames but that never happened. I was thinking, could osu! have that feature. Or would that not be allowed???? I think it is a good idea, just depends if it could happen.

He means that game would set up itself a broadcast, and stream over to twitch.

I only support this then if twitch chat would be visible in-game.

That would only bring even more aids in osu chats _Dd Ddad

Yeah twitch chat would be good also, but that could take some work to do. It would be easier to just broadcast right from osu! itself without a client like OBS or Xsplit

By this I think you mean that you could monitor your twitch chat in game with something like a #stream channel? If so, then yes this would be an amazing idea, it'd make it a lot easier to monitor and reply to chat with this. I also know for definite that the twitch chat works with IRC clients and so I can only assume that it'd be possible to integrate into the game.

EDIT: Also Thor, surely integrating this chat would be easier than the game setting up a stream for the user? Software like OBS are not hard to use, and there are even countless guides out there to help one set up their stream on these software, so it'd just be a waste of time and resources to implement it within Osu! itself.

Although I don't think that we'll need this too much since...well I personally (sorry for the crowd out there) open up twitch dashboard every time I stream. Or at least try to :c
OBS has stopped working on my new Windows 8.1 computer

Since osu! already uses the IRC protocol for the in-game chat, it shouldn't be that hard to implement Twitch chat into the game.
I actually want this feature to be implemented, with or without the actual livestreaming capability.

Just combine #spectator and twitch chat into one. Then make it so that you can use it with both osu and twitch client.
Never used #minecraft but i heard it works that way. Would be nice

I think a #streamchat would be a great idea

I was thinking about this today as well, seeing twitch integration a lot lately in games (Path of Exile, Minecraft, and some other indie titles) I play in full screen and I only have one monitor so it's more of a hassle (first world problems) to have the chat in the background and everything when I stream. so having a chat ingratiation would be awesome

I thought about this when I was playing Minecraft and I think it would be an amazing feature. I think it would help promote the game as well assuming that more people stream. Also the #streamchat thing would be a great thing to implement as well. :)

First out i would like to say, i would love to be able to view the twitch chat ingame and for this you have my support! :)

However i am not interested in streaming implemented into the game as i dont see how it will provide as many options as streaming software do without a significant amount of effort put into developing it. (alas im not a programmer so i might just be throwing guesses here but.. Since there are software developed for streaming i dont see why effort should be put into competing with them or try to substitute them)

This streaming implemented into games or consoles.. It's everywhere and im not against your idea specifically, im just not a fan in general ;(

It already takes some effort to set up a stream properly in terms of audio video and bitrate settings, options for secondary audio and video sources and perhaps overlays.. I think at least these options should be available. If people really want to stream please put enough effort into it, or if you wont, just send people your replays or ask them to spectate.

Sorry if i came off harsh, and i hope it is not against any forum rule. (bringing up my own opinions in someone elses thread)
I might just be a grumpy streamer who won't appreciate the competition ^^
