How to make attribution on Twitch or other streaming services?

Credits must be placed so that a person with reasonable effort can find out about the music. How this is done can vary quite a lot in different media.

Things that must be included:

  • Name of the artist.
  • The name of the piece(s).
  • A link to the source of the music (web site)
  • The license you are using (a link to the license).

Here are some examples of how to do this on Twitch or other live streaming services...


1. Add a "music" page to your profile

On your profile page, add a "Music" section.

This will cover all the requirements!


2. Add an overlay to your video

If you don't want to add all of this to your profile page, you can put up a link as an overlay on the screen which goes to a page where you have all the information above.
You can also put the link on your profile page.

If you don't want to make a web page for the credits, you can display all of the information as an overlay during the stream.


3. Announce the information during the stream

If you don't want to create an overlay, you can just announce all of the information live on the stream.


4. Buy an extended license

If nothing of 1.-3. is possible, you have to buy an extended license for each song to use the music without making attribution.
