Welcome to our corner of the streaming world. We are Lightstream! We want to help you understand all of the robust features Lightstream gamer projects has to offer, as well as what makes us stand out from our competitors.

The Basics

Let’s start with the basics. Lightstream is a browser and cloud based service that takes your stream to the next level of polish. Right now if you were to go live on Playstation, for example, you would be limited only to viewing your chat, using a microphone, and accessing a webcam. With our Lightstream Gamer Project you will have access to features making it easy for console, and mobile gamers to create a quality broadcast without all of the fancy equipment.

With our Lightstream Creator projects you won’t be able to take advantage of our cloud streaming for consoles but you can put together some more content, like IRL, PC streams, and more!

If you’re setting up a podcast, talk show, or plan on streaming some Just Chatting content then Lightstream Studio 2 is the place to be!

We also own Rainmaker, which gives you access to alerts, data, brand opportunities, and more, all for free.

Take Control

We believe in giving creators control, so we didn’t skimp on the customizations you need.

If you’re streaming, we assume you want control over game source positioning & audio… Control the volume, edit appearance, change sizes, add scenes.

There’s Layers To This
