These days gaming become more easier than before, good internet speed and lots of data availability is common thing so you can download heavy games easily and also you can play, live stream online multiplayer games with that good internet speed without lagging. If you love to play games on mobile or PC then you can also make money by playing games.
How to earn money?
You can earn money by creating channel and uploading gameplay or streaming live games on YouTube or on Twitch and trust me it’s very easy and I’ll tell you whole process step by step here. In this article we’ll discuss about YouTube.
Okay so first thing you need to do is create a YouTube channel. Simply follow these steps to create YouTube channel:
Sign into YouTube and click on the user icon at the top right of the screen.
Click on the setting icon (gear icon)
Click on Create a new channel.
Then choose “Use a business or other name”
Add your Brand name and click create.
(Or try this link after login to YouTube, it’ll open “create channel” page)
When you create your channel then verify that with your mobile no. so you can upload videos more than 15 mins and also for uploading custom thumbnails and live streaming.
After that just start uploading or live streaming gameplays on your channel.
For making money you need to monetize your channel but for that you need to have 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours total watch time in past 12 months. When you complete these conditions then you can apply for monetization from creators studio > Channel > Monetize
To record gameplays on android device
These days mostly mobile phones are coming with inbuilt screen recorder but if it’s not in your phone then you can install Az Screen recorder from play store or you can also record by using YouTube gaming app, unfortunately you can’t record games on iOS devices.
To live stream on android device
Install YouTube Gaming app from play store to live stream your games.
After installing YouTube Gaming app open that and log-in with your YouTube account where you want to live stream your game.
After login click on up arrow with WiFi signal icon.
App will tell you that you can record gameplay for later upload or you can live stream with this app, just touch next.
App will ask you for streaming or recording only, select stream and select video format then touch next.
Next screen will tell you that everything on screen will be live streamed, it would be good just put your phone on silent and choose a quiet place, now android is not allowing any app to record internal sound so mic will capture sound from mobile speakers so don’t use earphones else you’ll stream your game without or very low sound. Touch next
Now you need to select your game from list that you want to streaming live. Here i’ll select PUBG
Now enter streaming video details like title, descriptions and touch next
Now you need to allow YouTube gaming app’s floating permission by enable that , in below screenshot I need to turn on button next to YouTube Gaming in last in list.
After that app will ask some permissions, just allow them and your game will start live on your YouTube channel. Your mobile’s front camera will show your face during streaming, if you don’t want that then you can turn off that by touching camera icon then your channel’s logo will appear there. You can move that logo on screen so you can play without interruption.
All above steps will take hardly 10 mins. and your game will go live. Do you know live streaming is good for increasing watch time on YouTube, cause people love to watch live.
To record games on PC
If you are using win 10 machine then you can use game DVR tool, when you open any game, press Win Key+G button to open game bar and there you can see a red recording button.
If recording games by DVR is not supported by your machine then you can use OBS Studio (free open source) or bandicam (paid) but I would recommend OBS studio cause by using this you can also do live streaming.
To live stream on PC
Download and install OBS studio from https://obsproject.com/download when you open OBS studio after installation then you’ll see a window like below image
In source section click on + icon and select “Game capture” to add source.
A new window will open after clicking game capture, there you can change name of source I will leave that default so just click Ok, in next screen “Games properties” window will open, again click Ok
Now open the game and select source name from source section in OBS Studio and click on gear icon in source section for settings, on “Properties for game capture” window you need to change these settings:
Mode- Select mode “Capture specific window” from drop down.
Window- Select you game window name (you must open game before making these settings)
Window match priority- Just leave that default
After making these changes you can see your game screen in preview like below image-
If you see black screen then close game and open game again wait to load game then again click on gear icon and select your game window wait 10 sec, if still game preview not coming then close OBS and game and open both again and follow same process.
After that you need to go to your YouTube channel, click on user image (top right corner) then click Creator Studio and from left side menu click Live streaming.
On Live Streaming page you can change thumbnail, enter video title and description then copy Streaming key after clicking on Reveal button-
After that come back to OBS Studio and click Settings in right side-
