Upstreamer is a free tool that lets you add live interaction to YouTube, Twitch videos and streams. It helps you add Instagram like live interactions on your videos and then you can share them. You can embed those videos on your website and blog and then let your audience interact with them. This is simple and all you have to do is add an embed code in HTML. Right now, it only supports YouTube and Twitch but there will be more services in the coming updates I hope.

YouTube and Twitch already have streaming features, but they are not engaging enough. On the other hand, the streaming options that other social media tools have such as TikTok and Instagram are very nice and now you can have similar feature for YouTube and Twitch. Upstreamer actually adds a layer on the source video and then you can share that video on your blog and people can interact with them. For example, some effects include showing of hearts on click, display a message on the video.

How to Add Live Interaction to YouTube, Twitch Videos and Streams using Upstreamer?
