Allow Multiple PSN/XBOX One Accounts to be used on a single Twitch Account
So as of now, if you're a streamer who uses multiple PSN ID's or XBox One Accounts, for whatever reason (Mine being my wife and I both play, and would both like to stream solo when the other isnt there, on our sites stream), you must jump through hoops to do so.
First you have to disable the currently linked account on the PC, then re-link the one you would like to use, every single time.
There must be a better way. Linking the authorization to the entire console, using broadcast keys, any number of other solutions.
The only other alternative is for the individual streamer to go drop $1000+ on a capture card, and streaming capable PC, which not a solution, at least not a realistic one for many of us, otherwise we'd just be PC Streamers.
Bumping this back up -- needs to happen. Twitch: you've been sitting on this for over three years now
Yes, this needs to happen.
100% agree with this that Twitch should allow API keys unique per console, people often collaborate and I have multiple streamers who stream on my 1 channel taking turns, I need to be able to have multiple Xbox and PlayStations connecting to my Twitch account without disconnecting previous ones.
my brother and I co-run a channel, and I have my xbox one linked, which means he cannot have his xbox one linked. And we live several hours away from eachother. He's now has to resort to streaming on his own channel, and hope that the main channel will "Host" him automatically, which is less than ideal.
Why can't the xbox one twitch app just allow me to input a valid twitch stream key? I mean you COULD check that i'm not using a restream or mixer or youtube live or any other key just by the prefix and expected string formatting unique to twitch stream keys
Agree, they should allow connection via API keys like PC where you can assign people API keys.
Yes this is super frustrating! I also had a similar problem. So now on my main PSN account I stream on twitch and on my secondary PSN account I just steam my game on YouTube.
Exactly the same issue I’m having with my son!!

I have found that if I turn "Start broadcasting" on the Xbox One Twitch app and then log out of that user and then I can log in to any account on that console and the stream will be live.
I concur exactly!
PlayStation should have thought about this.

same situation here
really sucks that this cannot be added by means of a shared stream key.
