Setting up OvrStream is easy.
After launch, you will be greeted by the OvrStream interface. To get started, simply click on the "Open Scene button" and select a starter scene.
You will see a selection of scenes to get you started. Select a scene to open it up.
The scene will now start caching. The circles in the scene will begin filling up, once the circle icon turns green, the title has finished caching and can be played smoothly.
You can see how many titles are in your Scene at a glance with the Thumbnail Preview.
Using the Library
Alternatively, you can open the library and choose to work with inputs or designs.
Inputs allow you to quickly select default templates for the type of services and notifications you want to use.
Just click on inputs and browse a specific type of alert you want to use for your broadcast.
Click and drag a few of your favorites into the playlist to set up a scene.
You can also browse designs by clicking on the Designs tab in the library.
The Designs library includes all of the individual titles that make up a scene so you can mix and match designs form different scenes to make your own.
You can click on a graphic in the Preview window and move it around to re-position it. You can also scale the graphic to make it bigger or smaller.
You can also click on the Alert directly to edit Color and Text right from the Edit/Preview Window.
Inputs let you choose the way that graphics interact with incoming alerts and notifications and how they are triggered.
For example, the behavior "Twitch: Follower Alert" will trigger the graphic when a new follower alert is received.
Selecting an input behavior will launch the service login window where you can log in to your desired service.
Note: You must sign in to your Twitch account for this function to work.
Your Follower alert will automatically display your follower's name when a new Follower is received.
