Disclaimer: Twitch might change at any point to not allow copyright music on live streams. I take no responsibility and actually recommend finding some good copyright free music, there are a lot of it now a days, even free. Check comments for recommendations.

We all know by now that copyright strikes are being handed out left and right on all the major video and streaming platforms. YouTube will flat out stop your stream or mute your videos if any copyright material is found. Twitch will mute your VOD's but will let your stream running even if playing copyright music.

If you want you VOD's not to be muted after stream while keeping your game and mic sound there is a way to fix that. It's simple and it's quick. You will have to be using OBS or SLOBS for this, I'm not sure about other software. The procedure is the same on both OBS and SLOBS. This does require that you have the possibility to have your system separate audio sources, like a GoXLR, audio separate plugin (recommended) or the Wave software from Elgato.

Follow the few steps below and never get your VOD muted again.

1. Start by going into settings and navigate to Output options. Check the "Twitch VOD Track" option and select a track, preferably 6.

2. If you already have a music track you can skip to the next step. If not: Add a new "Audio Output" or "Application Audio Output Capture" if using the plugin to your scene and select the music source.

3. After you have added the audio source go back to you scenes and click the cog on any audio track and select "Advanced Audio Properties"

4. In advanced audio properties you simply uncheck all the tracks on your music output except track 6 and uncheck track 6 on all other audio outputs.

There you go. Track 6 will now output on a special track to Twitch that will be heard on your live stream but not saved on the VOD.

It's all good ❤️
