How to Stream Nintendo Switch Gameplay #howto
There are a ton of reasons you might want to record *and* stream gameplay from your Nintendo Switch. The console’s built in recording features leave a lot to be desired and there are no built-in streaming functions whatsoever. I made this video for anyone who wants to get into streaming their Switch games or at least learn what you need in order to do it! I made it so that this should truly cover all your basis to get started and be able to stream on your own!

It’s surprisingly easy and affordable especially since the software side is completely free! The only truly big limiting factor aside from the 20$ for a capture card is the system performance of your computer. Streaming and recording gameplay is taxing and it may not run optimally regardless of what card you’re able to buy so keep that in mind. You can try to adjust the settings in OBS to smaller resolutions and lower frame rates to help compensate.
