    issue streaming games with OBS using XBox (beta) app


    Win 10 fully updated, all drivers current ect.

    Unable to use streaming software to stream games using xbox game pass.

    I have been able to isolate the issue being when you choose the window you want to stream, and click on the game .exe window, the game immediately crashes. Grey screen then notta. no error codes, nothing at all.

    This happens for all games using gamepass service. For instance I was able to play forza 4 for 20 mins no issues, the second I clicked on that .exe file in OBS the game froze.

    The outerworlds it crashes when you try to leave the ship, instantly.

    Every other game ive tried wont launch or gets that grey screen crash immediately when I try to stream.

    :)

    issue streaming games with OBS using XBox (beta) app

    Hello JMan42028,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. We understand that your games are crashing when you are attempting to use OBS to stream games. OBS is a third party streaming service that is used by companies like Twitch. This program
    is not supported with Xbox games on Windows 10. The Xbox streaming service is Mixer. In the past, users could broadcast their gameplay by using the Xbox Game Bar. However, Mixer
    broadcasting
    is no longer available on Xbox Game Bar as of October 2019. We hope this information helps.

    How do I stream to YouTube?

    Hi Tyler,

    At the moment you can only stream your xbox to Twitch and Mixer, if you want to stream to Youtube, you'd need a PC/Laptop in order to do that.

    If you're still waiting for an Elgato (you'll still need a PC/Laptop for this), then for now you can use the Xbox Companion App and stream your Xbox there, then using software such as Streamlabs OBS or OBS to stream to Youtube.

    Blur with the Xbox Stream option to PC

    Hi Alex IN,

    Here's a trouble shoot to Improve Xbox Console Companion Quality but i have a feeling it wont help all that much because
    it mostly talks about wireless.

    Is the stream on the companion app itself Blurry/pixelated? OR is it only when loading the source to OBS blurry? OR is only the final stream output (Streaming/Recording)

    This is to establish where the problem may be.

    If the stream on Xbox Companion App is blurry, then i'd recommend making sure there's no congestion(too much traffic) on the network, and ensure you're using 100/1000mb network cables to both PC and Xbox.

    If the stream on the OBS source is blurry, you may need to adjust your resolution on your monitor where the Xbox Companion App is, and make sure its a resolution such as 1920x1080.

    If only the OBS output is blurry, then i'd suggest looking into the OBS settings, and making sure that your bitrate is set to between 2000 or 4000. You can go higher if your internet upload allows for it.

    There are a couple other settings that i'd recommend you check on OBS too such as the profile, and the encoder. the New NVENC encoder for nvidia GPU's is very effective.

    Hope this helps

    Xbox Streaming Lags With very good Internet connection

    Hello!

    Thank you for keeping us updated. Since the stream is being broadcasted through OBS and YouTube, we recommend reaching out to the support teams for those programs. The Xbox app utilizes

    Mixer
    to stream your games. If Mixer was being used, we would be able to provide more support options. There may be some settings with OBS or YouTube that are affecting the quality of the stream. We hope this helps!
