Creating a StreamHERO account is easy and won’t take you longer than a couple of minutes. Go to the StreamHERO signup page, choose the I’m a streamer tab and fill in the form.
The form will ask you to enter:
Click Sign up, and you’re all set.
Setting up your account takes just three steps.
After that, you’ll be redirected back to the StreamHERO website. Once you’re there, click Next.
Nightbot is a third-party chat bot for Twitch and YouTube that allows you to automate your live stream’s chat with moderation. Later on, Nightbot will automatically post ad links in the stream chat for you.
Once you click Connect Nightbot, you’ll be redirected to the Nightbot website. Choose Login with Twitch.
After that, you’ll need to confirm that you want to give Nightbot access to your Twitch account. Just like you did before, click Authorize.
To allow Nightbot to post ads in your stream chat, make Nightbot a chat moderator. Don’t worry, the bot will post only ad links and nothing more.
To make Nightbot a moderator, copy the command /mod nightbot and paste it in the chat frame below, then click Chat. Once you see the confirmation message in the stream chat, click Next.
First, enter your stream resolution. It will help StreamHERO correctly place the banner during your stream. Just pick your stream resolution from the drop-down list. You can check your stream resolution in the settings of your broadcast software.
If you plan to stream only part of your screen, choose the resolution that corresponds to the size of the fragment you’re going to stream.
After that, you need to set up your broadcast software. Copy the overlay link and paste it into your broadcaster.
Once you’ve pasted the link into your software, go back to the StreamHERO website to set the ad widget position. Move the widget to the area of the screen you’d like to place it.
The widget placement will instantly change on your stream. Once you choose the place, click Save.
To complete the account setup, you need to start streaming. Open your broadcasting software and start your stream. You’ll see a test banner right in the area where you placed it in the previous step. In 5 seconds, the banner will disappear. This means that everything is set up correctly.
If you don’t see the test banner, or if it showed up and didn’t disappear after 5 seconds, something is off. Contact our support team to figure out where the problem is.
Step 1. Choose the scene to which you’d like to add an overlay in OBS.

If you have several Twitch accounts and want to switch between them from time to time, then the next time you connect to Nightbot, you need to click the link labeled not you? log out under your username.
Then click Login with Twitch and Authorize. You’ll be redirected to the Nightbot Dashboard. Just close the window, go back to the StreamHERO website, and click Connect Nightbot one more time. Now you can authorize using your second account.
If you decide to take a break from using StreamHERO or just want to switch accounts, you can disconnect your Twitch from StreamHERO by resetting your profile. To do that, click on the Settings tab in the header menu.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Reset.
Both your Twitch and Nightbot accounts will be disconnected from StreamHERO and all your ads will stop. If you decide to continue using StreamHERO, you’ll need to set up your account again.
If you want to delete your StreamHERO account, contact our customer support team and request an account deletion. Within 2 days, your account and all your information will be permanently deleted.
Keep in mind that once you delete your account, it can’t be restored. If you just want to take a break, you can temporarily disconnect your Twitch account from StreamHERO.
