How to Stream on Twitch

New to Twitch? Learn how easy it is to start streaming on Twitch with Melon in a few steps.

If you already have an account, that's great, and if you don't, you will need to create a Twitch account before we get started. Head to twitch.tv and click sign up in the top right corner to get started. Enable two-factor authentication via a desktop computer. You can’t broadcast without enabling 2FA and you can’t enable 2FA on mobile devices. To enable 2FA, log into your account, find the security settings, and enable 2FA. You’ll need a mobile phone to do it.

Once you have your account, head to melonapp.com and sign in to Melon using your Twitch login credentials. Alternatively, you can sign into Melon using an account on a different platform and then link your Twitch account from Melon's settings page or when you click "Go Live."

2. Enable Microphone and Camera

First, make sure that you enable microphone and camera access. If you log in for the first time, make sure you click allow to both camera and mic. If there are any issues, please reload the site and make sure you grant access. You can double-check that access is granted by clicking on the little lock icon on the left of the URL address bar near https. Right-click there and ensure that Melon is granted permissions to microphone and camera.
