Broadcast with a webcam on Mixer

Broadcast yourself and your gameplay on Mixer at the same time with an off-the-shelf USB webcam.

You’ll need a webcam that has a YUY2 or NV12 format to broadcast with it. Most Logitech and Microsoft LifeCam webcams have this format. If you’re unsure which format your webcam has, check with the manufacturer. To broadcast with a webcam:

  1. Plug your USB webcam in to your Xbox.
  2. Check to make sure you’ve allowed sharing content with Kinect or another camera in Privacy & online safety > Xbox Live privacy > View details & customize > Game content.
  3. Press the Xbox button to open the guide, then go to Broadcast & capture > Set up your broadcast.
  4. Switch the camera toggle on.
  5. Select Change camera settings to crop your camera feed picture and to choose where you want your camera feed to show on the screen.

Note To broadcast mic audio as well, you’ll need to use a headset.
