Here is a list of useful bots, vital services and interactive tools to get you going on Beam. Also listed below are willing and able people to help you with any Beam related troubles you may run into.
This list will be updated & organized as new streaming tools spawn. =D
BlipBot | ScorpBot | Scottybot
StreamJar | No requirements, sign up now!
Easy to use donation tool with no fees attached and an overlay tool that shows recent events – like who just followed, hosted or subscribed.
loots | Tweet them for an invite code!
Generate revenue by having viewers post ad-contained messages which appear on screen, as well as posts beta keys to games in chat.
keymailer.co | Requires 50 followers on YouTube or Twitch!
Acquire free game keys. This works because streaming and let’s play videos are a form of advertisement – you might as well take advantage.
Gamewisp | YouTube or Twitch account!
Viewers can subscribe for privileges like access to your Discord or a monthly giveaway; check out this example. Good read right here too.
Patreon | No requirements, sign up now!
Viewers can subscribe monthly for special privileges, though this lacks connections to other services compared with Gamewisp. Example here.
Player.me | No requirements, sign up now!
Updates for the games you play, find similar gamers and keep up with upcoming gaming events – good way to sync up.
Discord | No requirements, sign up now!
Text and voice chat for your Beam community – a very useful tool to keep your viewers up to date as to what’s going on; it’s like Slack for gaming.
TreatStream | Requires 2,000 Twitch followers!
Have people send you food without knowing your address. Check out GasMaskftw‘s page for a good example of how it should be worded.
Restream.io | No requirements, sign up now!
Using this is recommenced to bring viewers from other platforms over to Beam – though keep in mind you cannot use FTL while doing this.
StreamLabs | Requires Twitch account!
Another tool for accepting tips, which offers different customization options than StreamJar – though I haven’t personally used it before.
Amazon Associates | Requires Amazon account!
Use the affiliates program to make money from link referrals; anything in your bio, like computer hardware, should use this for linkage.
Green Man Gaming | No requirements, sign up now!
Viewers can buy games from your referral link to generate some revenue for you; be sure to post the GMG pic in bio.
Myinstants | Nothing to sign up, just click away!
Board full of entertaining sounds for you to click or download to use with the Interactive Keyboard [which can be found below].
MultiStream | No requirements, just select the streamers!
Multiplayer with another streamer? Got a game and want to see who beats it first? Set this up for viewers to see multiple streams, side by side.
OBS-FTL | Settings [GeForce]
This is a version of OBS Studio that can utilize the low latency FTL protocol. If you have issues with setup, let me know!
Tachyon | Settings
This is a limited version of OBS but, as of writing this, has lower latency than OBS-FTL. You are, however, unable to use QSV or NVENC with this.
Interactive Keyboard | Setup guide
The vital tool used to allow people interaction with your games! If it doesn’t work with the game or application you’re trying, let me know.
BeamChatPlays | Setup guide
An easier way to get interactive working, along with adding real mouse support – though it is more limited as it can’t use robot-js.
BeamSoundlyInteractive | Setup guide
You know those interactive soundboards you see on everyone’s stream? Well, here it is! And it’s very easy to set up too!
