Another update to GeForce Experience brings another anticipated ShadowPlay feature. The ability to stream live gameplay to Twitch, hardware accelerated by Kepler, was demoed at the NVIDIA event in Montreal from late October. They showed Batman Origins streaming at 1080p 60FPS without capping or affecting the in-game output settings.

GeForce Experience 1.8.1 finally brings that feature, in beta of course, to the general public. When set up, Alt + F8 will launch the Twitch stream and Alt + F6 will activate your webcam. Oh, by the way, one feature they kept from us (or at least me) is the ability to overlay your webcam atop your gameplay.

Nice touch NVIDIA.

Of course the upstream bandwidth requirements of video are quite high: 3.5Mbps on the top end, a more common 2Mbps happy medium, and a 0.75Mbps minimum. NVIDIA has been trying to ensure that your machine will not lag but there's nothing a GPU can do about your internet connection.

GeForce Experience 1.8.1 is available now at the GeForce website.

Confirmed working on a machine without Flash installed. Only thing missing is a push-to-talk setting for the microphone recording. Also hoping they can get windowed mode to work eventually.

This is the most underrated piece of software for 2013.

I really like the direction NVIDIA is going, with this. I truly hope that AMD competes. Also impressed with the rapidity of these feature additions.

Got this up an running the other night. Worked very cleanly out of the box.

Kudos to NVidia and Twitch for providing this simple integration for game streaming on PC.

Works beautifully, a cool trick i've learn also is that you can broadcast over twitch any thing that's full screen so Plex is full screen, so... yeah it works...
