Hey, you over there… are you looking for the best guide on how to add an overlay to OBS?
Of course you are. Read on and let’s get that cool lookin’ stream overlay showing up on your channel for all your viewers to see.
My goal is to make this as simple as possible for you to understand, so you don’t have to waste hours trying to figure out how to overlay-ify your Twitch stream – or maybe you’re using hitbox or YouTube.
