Do you do it? Do you watch it? What do you stream? How often? How often do you watch it?

So many questions! Though it all comes down to a shameless plug for myself. First i'll answer the questions myself to set a good example that I'm sure many others will shamelessly ignore.

I don't often watch streams, wait I should clarify of people playing games/other things. I watch streamed anime (I.e. through Crunchyroll way too frequently... Though would that even count as streaming? I mean it is a personal stream.)
Anyways, I'd watch day9 and his funday monday for a while. Which got me into watching more of his 'Be a Better Gamer' stuff for SC2. Now I'll occasionally watch his day off if it's something I'd be interested in seeing. I've never jumped into random peoples streams on twitch, I've never really been much of a youtube person so I wouldn't watch all these little videos. Though the idea of streaming always intrigued me, so *insert shameless plug* I started streaming earlier this week.

I was curious to how to start out, I got some decent software for free (yes legally free and to all those who want to get into streaming it's really awesome and you can get it at: obsproject.com) and did a few test runs with my friends. Now I find myself turning on my stream whenever I go to play a game. By some miracle I got my first follower pretty much my first night streaming, s/he's a lot of fun to talk with while I've been playing spelunky before bed. Tonight I even got up to the double digits of viewers (unfortunately likely due to the late hours none-too talkative aside from my first follower the night before). To those interested in viewing its: twitch.tv/niarbad2 I don't really have a set schedule for streaming yet (due to a few events upcoming). Though I will be setting one up in a few weeks, till then it's whenever I boot a game for any reason I'll be popping my stream up in the hopes to entertain a few people who maybe can't play PC games, or just enjoy being a spectator more than a player. I do have a friend like that.

So I throw it to you: Do you stream, if so why? What do you stream? Do you enjoy watching streams, if so why?

I've streamed League of Legends before because I was bored. It was fun I got around 23 viewers which for my first time streaming it seemed pretty good to me. I enjoy watching streams because I use it as a learning experience/entertainment.

I rarely watch live streams and if I'm going to watch one it is usually a live podcast.

I love watching streams because of the interaction between the streamer and the ones watching the streams. Also I watch streams for the most part when competitions are held overseas or when podcasts made.

Though I must say, it has been a long time since I watched a stream, I don't know why, but I just stopped suddenly and did other stuff, hopefully I will start up watching some more in the future :P

I streamed once and pretty much failed miserably xD Well I perfected everything that had to do with "the video actually showing in the stream feed" -_- But I wasn't satisfied with it anyway <.<!

When I'm bored I watch Cryaotic's stream- Late Night with Cry and Russ. They're very entertaining.

I mostly watch LoL streams, other random games and big esport competitions. Recently I also started watching some SC2. I have a bunch of streamers that I'm following so there's always something on, I probably watch streams every week.

Streams are perfect to watch when I'm bored or have nothing to do. It's fun because you can learn a lot from the players and they can be really entertaining. And it also gives you a opportunity to watch a game that you may not be able to play yourself

I've been thinking of starting streaming. Now that I actually have a computer that can handle it I just want to get a second monitor first.
