This is something that we wanted to do for ourselves and finally got around to it. After getting the basics going, it seemed worth sharing with the world.
The use cases seem to keep growing.
- Many of our users enjoy having some of the chat context available if they just joined the room.
- Having a chat overlay is useful for streamers who repost edited versions of their content to other platforms.
- Some streamers have certain emotes and phrases that they can't stand and they don't want them in their overlay.
- It's also just a fun way to make the stream seem more "you". Branding emotes, emoji, words, and phrases with your own images adds a nice personal touch that your viewers will appreciate.
We are always open to hearing more about why you use or want to use StreamParrot.
