How To Play Spotify On Streamlabs Obs + Spotify Overlay [2019]

How To Play Spotify On Streamlabs Obs + Spotify Overlay [2019]


– If you decide to play
Spotify on your stream, you will also need this widget. Let’s set them both up. (inspirational music) What’s up, everyone? Jelle here, with The Video
Nerd, and welcome to the Streamlabs OBS master course. Today’s subject is Spotify. I will teach you how you
can play Spotify on stream, then add an overlay to
make sure everyone can see what songs are playing at the moment, and then I will show you
how you can make sure that your stream can hear
Spotify, but you cannot. So, for example, for when
you are playing Fortnite and you need to hear the footsteps. Playing Spotify on your stream
is actually very simple. The only thing you need
to do is go to Spotify, and press play. Right now you can see that
my PC audio is moving. This is my microphone, so don’t mind that. But, Spotify is playing
on my normal audio, and I can hear it coming
through my headphones, so my stream will also hear Spotify. You can then easily adjust
the level of Spotify, because for your stream it will
have to be a bit less loud. So, here we go, it’s all setup if you just want Spotify to
be playing on your stream. Right now, we will add an overlay, because everyone will be
asking you what is this song, what was the previous
song, things like that. So, let’s just add a beautiful
song overlay like this one, and I will show you how to
do it from the beginning. So, let’s delete it. Okay, first of all, we
need to go to this website, and I will also put the
link in the description. Then the first thing you do, is you copy this link, right here. So, select it, copy it, and
then press on this blue link. Oh, it takes you to another page, and there you have to paste
your code that you just copied, and press Enter. This will give a popup with another link, which you have to copy. So, completely, ’til the end, right here. Press control C, or if you’re on a Mac, command C. And then you go back to
your Streamlabs OBS program. Now, you add a new source
and you take Browser Source. Okay? Let’s call it Spotify, and
then click Add New Source. And then replace the URL right
here with the URL we just copied from the popup. Then, as your width, select 350 pixels. As your height, you select 100 pixels, and you press done, and you see
the overlay already started, because my Spotify is playing. Let’s make it a bit bigger
for the video, right now. So, when you go to Spotify,
this song is playing right here, and it’s also playing on stream. And when I press pause, right here, you will see that it
disappears from the stream. When I play it again,
it will appear again, and it looks very good. So, I think this is amazing. But, what if you’re playing a game where the Audio is really
important for footsteps, or things like that? There’s also a solution to make sure that you do not hear Spotify,
but your stream does. But for that, we need to
download another program. So, go to Google, and search
for audio router download. And then the first thing that
appears is a GitHub link, and that’s where you need to be. So, scroll a bit down, and right here, you can copy two versions. There’s the 64-bit version,
and the 32-bit version. I will choose this one. And then it downloads. You open it, and then when
you try to double click on Audio Router, it will ask
you to unpack everything. So you select Unpack Everything, and you choose a location where you want to store the program. Okay, so I unpacked everything. And now we double click on Audio Router to start the program. And then right here we can
see all our audio sources and our programs. And what you need to do
is you click on the arrow beneath Spotify, you click Route and you need to select an audio device. So, the headphones is the
main audio device for me, and that’s where Spotify is
playing through right now, so, my headset. And now, you need to
search an audio device which you are not using. So for me, that’s this one. High Definition Audio Device. I’m not using this, there’s
no audio being sent to that, so, I will select this one,
and when I press OK, now, Spotify will be sent to this audio output instead of through my headphones, so I will not be able to hear it anymore. So press OK. So now Spotify will be playing through the other audio device. So, let’s go back to Streamlabs OBS, and then let’s play something on Spotify, just to test things out. Now, you can see even
though Spotify is playing, and the overlay appears right here, you can see that the
headphones are not moving because there’s nothing
coming out of these. Spotify is not being
sent to the headphones, it’s being sent to the other audio export. So, go to the settings,
to the audio settings, and now you need to add Spotify
as an audio device, too. So, when I click right here, I can see that this is the audio device to which I sent Spotify. So, I will select High
Definition Audio Device, and I will need to do it again. Okay, now it worked. I will press Done, and now
you can see in the Mixer, that there are three audio outputs. Of course, the webcam, but
this doesn’t mean anything. And now, Spotify is playing
through this audio device, instead of through my headphones. Now, of course, you will want
to level these things out, because probably Spotify
will be playing too loud for your stream. So, to do this, next to the Mixer, click on the gear icon. And right here, we can see
all these three audio devices, which are sending audio to our stream. Now, what you want to do, of course, we will already be hearing our
game through our headphones, so this is all right. But, we will need to enable
monitoring for our microphone, and for our Spotify. So, choose one of these two options, it doesn’t matter as long
as you’re not online. So, just click on this one,
then click on this one. And now, through my headphones, I will be hearing the
headphones audio, of course, so my game, but also my microphone, and also Spotify. So, right now, what you want to do is you want to play a game,
and then talk to yourself, and listen if Spotify is too loud, if your microphone is too loud, and then come back here,
and level things out. So, probably you will
need to lower the audio of Spotify, so instead
of 100, I will select 40. Then you go back to your
game, you talk to yourself, and when you think, okay all
the levels are perfectly setup, you come back here, and then
you turn off the monitoring, and then everything is setup,
so now Spotify will be playing on your stream, you will
not be able to hear it, and there’s an overlay for
people who want to know what music is playing. Now, you cannot close this
program while streaming, because then the audio will be sent to your main audio port, again. So just minimize this program, and keep it open in the background. And then you’re done. Remember that this was
only of all the guides in the Streamlabs OBS Master Course, so if learning more about Streamlabs OBS is something you’re interested in, click on the playlist, right there. And if you want to learn more about streaming and promoting yourself, don’t forget to subscribe and
turn on the notification bell. So I will see you in my next video. Have a good day.
