Tutorial: adding a Snap Camera filter on Twitch

In this article you will find the process to add a Snap Camera filter on Twitch easily. This guide will explain the steps for the most common software: OBS Studio, Streamlabs OBS and XSplit Broadcaster.

Snap Camera and OBS Studio for Twitch

For this first software, you must first open Snap Camera and then OBS Studio. You then need to add Snap Camera as a source on OBS.

To do this, on the streaming software, click on the + button in the Source section.

Then click on "Video capture device". A window will then open and you will simply have to name this new source "Snap Camera" and click on "Ok".

A new window will appear (property), select "Snap Camera" from the device drop-down menu and click the "Ok" button.


You can now stream with a filter and change it whenever you want directly on Snap Camera!

Another parameter window will appear, select the Snap Camera source in "Device".
