Best music for Twitch streams and VOD
Can you play music on Twitch?
Yes! Using music in Twitch videos and streams is a great way to keep your audience entertained and engaged.
Here’s what Twitch says:
“if there is copyrighted material in the content shared on your channel and you have not received explicit permission to use that material from the rights holder, you are at risk of receiving a DMCA takedown notification”.
If you ignore Twitch music policy, your stream or VOD will get muted and you risk getting a ban on your channel.
what music is safe to play on twitch
Twitch got very serious about copyright with the recent Twitch music policy rules update.
In short, you can NOT use any copyrighted music unless you have explicit permission or license to use it.
To comply with Twitch’s new music rules, you only can play the music when:
1. You own all the rights. For example, you composed and recorded your own song.
2. The music doesn’t require permission. Public domain and creative commons music (with some restrictions) can be used freely.
3. You have explicit permission (or license) to play the music.
How to license music for Twitch
To recap, using copyrighted music without license is illegal and can lead to your streams muted or removed from Twitch permanently.
If you’re looking for great, modern sounding music made specifically for videos and streaming, like epic cinematic or chillout or lo-fi or if giving credit for creative commons music is not something you can do, your best option is to license royalty free music, so you can use it in your Twitch streams without breaking the rules.
Typically you can obtain licenses from a music library that offers royalty free music for videos and media projects.
