Tips for streaming from a Chromebook

You have a Chromebook and you want to live-stream to Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitch, or other platforms. Great! Let’s do this.

With Melon you are in good company because thousands of folks on Chroomebooks are already using Melon to livestream.

First, why is streaming with Melon from a Chromebook so easy?

Because Melon is built from the ground up to be the best streaming solution that just works with only your browser.

You don’t need to download anything. And since the essence of Chromebook is browser experience based on Chrome Melon works great. Added bonus is that Melon works exceptionally well in Chrome (other browsers work too, but Chrome is best).


What are my other options to stream from a Chromebook besides Melon?

There is other browser based live-streaming software that will work. We are of course biased and recommend Melon! You can also download streaming apps from the Google Play Store. For example - you can get Streamlabs, Omlet Arcade, or Mobcrush.

There are of course native platform apps as well so you can go live from the YouTube App or the Facebook Live app. These apps work great for these specific platforms.

The benefit of using Melon to stream from a Chromebook over a native app is 3-fold:

  • Ability to stream to multiple platforms so say Facebook and YouTube at the same time
  • Greater ability to customize your show and make it professionally
  • Ability to invite guests with ease.
