[#TOC1]How to get Twitch stream key[#TOC1]

  1. Open Twitch.tv - make sure you’re logged in, and click on your avatar on the top right.
  2. Click the Settings tab.
  3. Go into the Channel and Videos tab which takes you to the Twitch dashboard. You might also have to switch from Channel to Stream on the left navigation menu if you’re not already there by default.
  4. Click the Copy button to copy your stream key, it’s censored by default for privacy reasons.

Note: If you’ve already done this in the past and your Twitch stream is not working, it might be because your Twitch Stream Key is not up to date anymore. Twitch recently reset all the keys so you have to do this again and refresh it in your streaming app.
