Using Restreamio and Expanding Your Video Game Streaming Audience

It's been a minute, that's for damn sure. I tried re-signing up for the Twitch affiliate status only to realize it wasn't the path I wanted. Restricting oneself to one avenue of video game streaming really isn't the best method of learning the entire market, so I decided to focus my efforts with something that I knew about in the past: Restreamio!

Using Restreamio for Video Game Streaming Content


Restreamio acts as a streaming hub for several different platforms. You stream to it, and it rebroadcasts to all of your channels. It's convenient and can potentially expand your audience much wider; the only problem, I think, is the matter of hosting. If you're streaming on Twitch, Mixer, YouTube, and Facebook, then it's a matter of hosting who you want to on each individual platform. That's not a very easy task, unfortunately. But if you're looking to get into video game streaming and you don't want to limit yourself to one platform, I think it's a fantastic idea to use it regularly. Most of their broadcast avenues are free, but if you're looking to stream to a Facebook page or more obscure platforms, there are paid options as well. Plus, Restreamio has a featured channel chat that combines all streamed-to platforms into one, so there's no confusion about where to look or who is saying what.

Just an FYI, I haven't gotten the Steam streaming platform to work with Restreamio yet. I'm not sure why, but on every instance that I log in to try out Steam it doesn't show a proper feed. I don't know if this is on my end, but I'm not too concerned with Steam anyhow. If your goal is to broadcast on Steam, I wouldn't take this route just yet. 

I'm not sponsored by Restreamio at all; I just think it's a fantastic platform that shows people the benefit of not being tied exclusive to one streaming channel. Take a look at their website by checking out the Restreamio homepage.

Thanks for reading. I typically am online 5 PM PST on Mixer, YouTube, and Twitch. Check the stream feed if you'd like located at the top of my blog where my other links are.

Carmen Electra's Striptease Video Workout and XSplit's VCam Software

It was around 2007 that I moved to Jacksonville and met up with some cool folks to hang out with. Some of these peeps were Navy folks which was the dominant military service in the area. Mayport was nearby, and so the Navy presence was pretty high. I was happy to find some circle of friends to be around, and it turns out we got up to some weird shenanigans.



I don't remember why, but this group of friends and I decided to put on Carmen Electra's Aerobic Striptease video. It was me, two Navy guys, and a Navy guy's wife. Yes, we practiced warming up, raising our arms and rotating our wrists. Yes, it was a striptease warmup.

XSplit has just released their newest software product, VCam. If you're streaming video games via Twitch, it might be a solid product to take a look at. It all depends on what you want and what you have. A lot of videogame streamers use green screens with proper lighting. However, that can easily reach up into the range of several hundreds of dollars…

2018 in Review: A Reflection on Twitch Streaming and the Videogame Industry

I'm not going to lie to you. This year has been probably the worst year for me in terms of gaming. We've seen a lot of industry shifts happen that are pointing towards a constant reminder: video game companies are corporations. They produce product that people will buy, and if that doesn't happen the company dies. Often times, products aren't what the players want, or perhaps the product isn't a very strong one. Regardless, we must remember that there isn't a thing called a "good" corporation. They just exist for money, and it's a harsh thought as our generation, the people that grew up with these game companies, starts to see our favorite pastime turn into product.

As we move into 2019, I'm reflecting on a lot in this post—why I haven't streamed on Twitch or Mixer lately, what I'm dealing with personally, where games might be going in the future and some terrible incidents that have definitely marred gaming. Let me be clear that I…

E3 2019: Quite Possibly My Favorite E3 of All

Phil Spencer recently admitted that the E3 show for 2019 was weaker specifically because Activision and Sony weren't at the con. I couldn't disagree more with his opinion, as I thought this latest con was probably the best--at least for me. And I'll tell you why.

Why E3 2019 Was Impressive For Me So, my first foray into E3 was through AOL. I had a very strong misconception that I would be trying the latest games, meeting awesome folks, and partying a ton. The latter part was somewhat true as I got some pretty decent party invites, but the former aspects weren't. Attending E3 under media, especially controlled media, is a lot more work than you might think.
It's quite literally going to an interview, record interview, sit down, write the interview, and go to the next interview. That's about it. You're there to work, and that's what they make you do. Or, of course, you lose your job, and while I can think of many jobs I wouldn't want over professiona…
