Minecraft Twitch integration now open to the public22 Nov 2013
If you’re reading this, you’re connected to the internet, which means there’s a 98.2% chance that you stream games onto Twitch.tv or upload them onto YouTube. Good news: you can now stream Minecraft to Twitch very, very easily.
Mojang announced that they’d be bringing Twitch integration to Minecraft back at Minecon, and there’s now a publicly available build of the game with exactly this feature. You can read up on the full details on Mojang’s blog over here, but the short version is this: go to your Mojang settings, link a Twitch account to your Mojang account, make sure your game profile has “Enable experimental development snapshots” turned on (so that you get this version of the game – and you may want to set up a profile specifically for this), and then press F6 while playing. Voila! You are now broadcasting blocks to the internet, and I have now typed the word “Mojang” so many times that it has lost all meaning.
Mojang notes that the integration probably a bit buggy as this is still a development snapshot, and that not all of the features they want are in yet, but I doubt that’ll stop the internet. You guys’ll be streaming this regardless, I’m sure.
