Display YouTube Comments via Livestream Studio

Studio lets you include comments from your YouTube broadcast or other videos on YouTube and show them in a graphics overlay.

In a GFX module, select Create Custom Graphic in the bottom left corner. Hover your mouse over Social, then select YouTube Comment.

Once you add the YouTube Comment layer, be sure to open the GFX Designer to design your graphic and add the desired fields from YouTube (profile picture, name, comment; "likes" will appear but will appear as "N/A" in the data field).

There are two ways this feature can be used.

 

See Comments on Current Live Broadcast

By default, this option is set to get comments from YouTube stream provider. This means when you set up Studio to broadcast to YouTube, the comments that populate will be from the stream that appears on YouTube once you go live from Studio.

You can also filter the comments that come in by a keyword or hashtag. This will pre-populate a default comment you can display in your graphic that will prompt your viewers to use the desired phrase. If you want to see all the comments that come in, uncheck Filter comments.

Next, you can configure how often Studio polls for new comments and how many of the most recent comments will it show. By default, it will poll new comments every 60 seconds and display the most recent 100.

 

Below this setting are the auto-loop settings, where you can set Studio to loop through each comment at a defined interval.

See Comments from Another YouTube Video

If you wish to display comments from another YouTube video, select Use separate login. Paste the URL of the video whose comments you wish to display in the graphics overlay, then press the Enter key on your keyboard.
