Cannot link Twitch.tv account?

by Mythologicalx » Sat Feb 11, 2012 6:24 am

I'm trying to set up my Twitch.tv account for gaming, but when I try and add my account with the username and password it never finds my channel. I cannot save anything because it cannot find my channel, and I cannot stream due to it. Help!

There's 2 common causes to this problem:

#1 You didn't reply to the email that Twitch.tv sent you after registering your account. Doing so makes your account "validated" and allows you to setup your channel.

#2 Caps in username. Regardless of any capital letters in your name, enter your username in full lowercase into XSplit.

Hope this helps.
