Transcript Excerpt

Hey what’s up everyone, it’s Derek from Nerd or Die, and I’m going to show you how to setup our latest overlay package, Uplink.

In this video I’ll show you how to quickly and easily get this pack setup inside of Streamlabs OBS and I’ll walk you through how to customize the colors and text and media sources used. We’ll also go over how to install, use, and customize the goal widgets included in the pack.

Let’s get right into it.

So, if you don’t yet have Streamlabs OBS, you can use our affiliate link in the description below to download it directly. We’ve worked hand-in-hand with Streamlabs in order to make our products easy to install and customize, so we definitely recommend checking it out. If you prefer to use OBS Studio instead, then I recommend checking out some of our other videos about adding sources into OBS Studio, which you can find in the description below. The pack comes with all of media files you’ll need to do so with either software. Even if you’re using OBS Studio, this tutorial will still cover the basics you need to know to follow along. Also, don’t forget to subscribe with notifications on, as we have some awesome new free resources and stream packs coming out soon.

With the pack downloaded and unzipped, open up Streamlabs OBS and click the settings tab on the top right. From there, click Scene Collections, and then the “Import Overlay File Button”. Next, select the .overlay file found in the Streamlabs folder of your overlay pack, then click Open. After a few seconds the overlays will be imported and basically ready to use.

Before I forget, make sure that you check out the readme file included with the package, as it will contain more details on settings and processes included in this video.

The first scene you’ll see includes instructions about how to use the product correctly. I recommend reading through the guide quickly, and then deleting this scene once you’re ready to rock.

Not only will your scenes be set up for you, but the stinger transition should be set up as well. When you change scenes, you should see the stinger transition fire off, so let’s move to the Stream Starting scene. If you need to edit the stinger transition you can do so by clicking the gear icon above the scenes area. Here you’ll find the transition and connection tabs.

For transitions, you’ll see that we’ve made a global transition, with the type of stinger. You can click the edit button and see the properties we’ve used for this transition. You can also use the dropdown for “type” if you’d like to change the type of transition used. For instance, you can use a “cut” or “fade” type by changing it here.
