How to integrate OBS with Rechaaarge

In this guide I’m going to show you how to integrate Rechaaarge with OBS (Open BroadCast Software) a free and open source software for video recording and live streaming.

You will also need to have a Rechaaarge account. If you haven’t got one yet, then click here.

What does this guide include?

  • Optimal setup of OBS for Rechaaarge
  • Find your Rechaaarge notifications
  • Show Rechaaarge notifications onscreen

not on OBS? We also created guides for integrating Streamlabs OBS and Xsplit Broadcaster and Xsplit Gamecaster.

Once you have OBS installed on to your computer, a window like this one will appear.

The OBS panel is basic and intuitive and allows quick content management. In the lower left part of the image above, you will find the scenes design. There we can define  and easily change the scenes configuration.

To get your Rechaaarge link that will display your viewers’ donations onscreen, head over to your Rechaaarge dashboard.

In your Rechaaarge dashboard, in the top navigation, go to “Streaming tools”.

Choose which notification design you want (Basic or Retro!), and click “Copy link”.

Now that you have the link, go back to OBS, and click on the ‘+’ button in the “Sources” section. Once you get to the options panel, select ‘Navigator’ and create a name for the tab (e.g. ‘Rechaaarge Notifications’).

When you click ‘Accept’, you automatically open the configuration tab for adding the link. Just paste the Rechaaarge notification link you copied into the space provided.

Once you’ve entered the link, a test notification will appear for you to place the notification in your desired dimensions (270×1000).

And that’s it! You can seeing cost-free donation notifications on screen! … Well then, let’s start streaming, shall we? 😉
