Media Request




  • prophetof anger

    So is media requests ever gonna be implemented in for youtube streamers? Becuase im a youtube streamer and I would love to be able to have my viewers request songs in my streams.

    No ETA yet but once a feature like that is available it will usually be posted in #announcements or #updates on our Discord:

    So is there a possibility to rout the songs to a another output device? Because I don't want to listen to music, just want my viewers to listen to it?

    You can use an audio mixer, you can even download virtual audio mixers, but it's 3rd party software so you'll need to research how to set it up, we don't support that

    I'm having trouble getting Media Requests working while using the Loyalty Points. It seems like anytime I try to configure it in a way that costs loyalty points to request a song my viewers are met with an error (Internal Server Error). It seems like anytime the "User Level Exemption" setting is set higher than "Everyone" this error occurs. This basically means that while we (as broadcasters) are able to set up a point cost for requesting a song, the Media Request service will only work if those settings are bypassed by all users. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Answered the question above on Zendesk Live Chat, we determined that the issue was likely caused by the request limit of 1 per user so I and the user decided to raise this limit

    So when will Streamelements be telling it's users about the Copyright laws and how it affects streamers in this guide. As a streamer you can't just blast anything out over your stream if you want your content to be watchable later - correction, if you want people to hear audio on your recorded content and replay's later.

    How the hell do you link a playlist to be the backup list? I've tried and I've also tried linking multiple songs within the list itself as the backup. The instructions are extremely unclear here, they just say 'oh link a list' well I did and it doesn't play and I know how this sounds but I have a couple other friends who use stream elements and none of them can figure it out either, we all just have it blank so it goes to silence when the queue is empty.

    Use this link:

    You need to paste a link which tells it to play a song plus have the part after it which links the actual playlist
