  1. Streamers recommend you restart your PC before streaming in case there are programmes running that don’t need to be

    Prepare it
  4. Is your audio working? Is your video working? Is the lighting good?
  5. Open your Twitch Chat ready to go and make sure your moderator bots are working
  6. Make sure you’ve got some water, some light snacks and are sitting comfortably
  7. Last minute audio and video checks
  8. Go live
  9. Finish your live stream
  10. Review your stream — what could you of done better? What were the stats like? What can you learn?
