I've been thinking about getting a Twitch account recently, because all the cool speedrunners have a Twitch account. I'd like to pretend I'm a legit speedrunner, even though my runs have been frozen in processing since September.
So...how does this work? They say Twitch is a streaming website. Does that mean only live video footage is accepted? Can I upload my old Nancy Drew walkthroughs to Twitch, or not? Can I upload the Nancy Drew videos, which I recorded live?
Someone says I should become a Twitch partner, which basically means I get money from ad revenue. I don't think I meet their minimum requirements. They want 500 viewers per live event, on average. The live Nancy Drew marathon I did last year generally peaked at 250 people per broadcast. They say that they want YouTubers with 100,000 subscribers, but I only have around 30,000. But my Nancy Drew videos do surpass the recommended average view count of 15,000!
On a downside, Twitch wants partners to stream at least three times a week, and I don't play videogames that often.
So...getting a Twitch! Good idea, or not? Trying to get a Twitch Partner account, good idea or not?
