Video content is one of the most popular and best ways to engage with your audience on a social platform. Twitch is one of the leading platforms for video content and Linkdaily users can embed a Twitch video, live stream, or chat directly onto their Linkdaily, with the Twitch Link type.

When the visitor clicks on your Twitch Link (which will look like any other link on your Linkdaily), your video, live stream, or chat will open out from the link and play natively, without your visitor navigating away from your Linkdaily profile.

If they like what they see, they can click on the video to go straight to your Twitch channel.

Terminology


Twitch Channel

Your Twitch Channel is your 'profile' where your live stream and chat, as well as all of your videos, can be found. This has its own separate link.

Twitch video

A Twitch video is a specific video that lives on your channel and has its own link, separate from your Channel link.

FAQs


What do visitors see when I'm not streaming?

Your channel link will display whether you are live streaming or not. If you are not streaming, your visitor will have the option to turn on notifications for your channel.

What if my Linkdaily visitor is not a Twitch user or is not logged into Twitch?

If the visitor on your Linkdaily clicks to interact with your live Twitch chat, they will need to be logged in to join the conversation. A Twitch login screen will open up. If they need to sign up to Twitch, they can do this from here too.
