Starting a Twitch stream is very easy and can be done in less than 10 minutes. Streamlabs OBS is very similar to OBS Studio and is a free.

The main difference between Streamlabs OBS and OBS Studio is that Streamlabs OBS includes all of their alerts and widgets. This means you can add an alertbox (donations, bits, subscriptions, hosts, and followers), The Jar, Follower Goals, Donations goals, Bit Goals, Donation ticker, Chatbox, Stream Boss, Credits, Viewer Count, Spin Wheel, and Stream Label. Adding these requires no code or plugins, it's all included in Streamlabs OBS. Please note that at the creation of this Twitch tutorial, Streamlabs OBS is not compatible with Mac, only Windows.
