What to stream and when to stream it – Twitchstrike

Last Updated on

Figuring out what to stream can sometimes be one of the most challenging things to do. There have been times where I had no clue what to stream, and that is where I turned to Twitchstrike.

Twitchstrike is a website designed for streamers to help you solve this dilemma. The site gives you access to metrics of when you should stream certain things at a certain time of day, what has low competition with high search volumes, and many more useful metrics.

What it isn’t is a surefire solution to success. It does give you advice on what to stream, but what you feel like streaming has a higher value. If you are simply following the trends, and stream something you don’t really like, it will show.

That said, It is still a very viable tool. There is as a lot of useful data that the site lays out for easy digestion.

The Metrics laid out for when to stream is easy to digest.

Organized in weekly line graphs when you select a game in the Twitchstrike database, this metric will show how popular a game is at a given time.

Utilizing this information, you are able to broadcast at a timeframe where there is little competition; This increases your chances of being seen by viewers.

You can also easily determine games that are “Dead” and might have a viewership audience searching for it, but nobody is live. You, being the only one in the list, is the viewers ONLY choice.

That carries a risk in and of itself, in that you can’t always guarantee viewers are even searching for it. You cannot see what viewers are searching in the database, only channels that are live or not live and at what time they are live.

Learn When to stream with Twitchstrike & Advertise your stream on the front page.

If you pay £5.99 to them, they advertise your stream on their front page for a 28-day window. Whenever you go live, you can show up for a visitor of Twitchstrike.

You can also read their reviews on streamer related hardware

When considering buying hardware of any kind, it is our opinion that you want to see many different reviews of the products. This is especially true for audio hardware, as everybody’s voice is different. For example, A Microphone that is best for Ninja, may not necessarily be the best microphone for you.

You can read our review on the Behringer UMC204HD, but be sure to read other reviews before you finalize your decision!

What you want to do in the case of viewing the reviews in the case of microphones is to try to find a reviewer with a similar voice as you. The Frequency response curve is what determines which mics are the best choice for you.

Reviews on video hardware are a similar story. The lighting conditions are different for everybody, and light will ultimately dictate quality. When reading or watching reviews on cameras or webcams, be sure to take note on the lighting conditions of the feed.

Should you use Twitchstrike?

The Best games to stream by the hour.

We do not recommend using it to dictate what you’ll be broadcasting all the time; However, the metric data remains useful. Using it to figure out what to start a series on is a good use of it, and we do recommend playing with it if nothing else.

The interface is easy to understand and simple to navigate. At the end of the day, Twitchstrike is a solid platform for figuring out what to stream in a pinch.
