External Mic for the Mobile App.

Hey guys, i was streaming eith your App at Gamescom, and i realized that your App only use the Mic of the Phone itself.
I bought a Bluetooth Headset and even a Line-In Mic.
It would be cool if the apps could use external Mic's because it would improve the sound quality in loud enviroments.

    I Totally agree. Ive built a setup the past week to find out the same thing. This has to be fixed. Everything runs through the phones mic instead of the external mic, even with all sorts of adapters. It funny enough, works in other programs, but just not for streaming in streamlabs. If u fix this fast, then this would be the best program ever for this purpose. 
    If possible, add more features like, choosing mono to stereo in the software and so on, on the external mic. Also it mutes all alerts if the mic is plugged in. Guess because it doesn't seperate the two things, mic and headset in the program.

    Yes please! I stream often and audio can be a issue sometimes.  I would love to be able to plug a mic in.

    completely agree, this hands down beats anything else out there for streaming on mobile, but that in ability to use an external mic, wired or BT, is really a deal killer for me.  I mean, most people are probably using this to stream mobile games, which means that the mic is going to be muffled, bumped, tapped, and brushed by for the entire stream.  I would love to see this updated soon, it really is a necessary feature for a mobile streaming solution.

    I had no trouble using my RODE videomic pro with the app. Idk about bluetooth or USB mics but if you use a 3.5mm mic it should work fine as long as you have a TRRS plug or an adapter to TRRS. Here is a video clarifying a bit if you are still having trouble. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fA7YV8zwr0Y

    @Mo05eman How did you get the app to capture the sound?

    Don't know why but this does not work, for me at least... I use a TRRS plug and the mic works in other apps, incl. the sound capture app pre installed on my phone, but doesn't work in streamlabs app...

    Since Youtube blocked mobile streaming for channels with less than 1000 subscribers a couple of weeks ago, and after investigating lots of alternatives, Streamlabs came out as the only viable fallback. It would even allow us to continue streaming to our existing Youtube channel, but the external sound is a necessity. Our "camera" phone is in a fixed setup and connected to the line out of an amplifier that has a number of microphones connected and that works OK for Youtube mobile streaming and most other apps that record sound, but not for Streamlabs, which leaves us practically without alternative now :(

    I don't understand why this most basic feature only have 25 votes. Do people stream games without  headphones so that the phones built in mic can be picked up? (we are in 2019 and a lot  of them require strerio sound to play properly)

    At the moment I find that I can stream games like a robot without being able to interact with any viewer.

    Please fix this!
