A new week and another streamer round up, today we are talking about Twitch DMCA and with the recent news over the past weeks on how streamers can get hit with copyright strikes for hosting video highlights and even clips that have copyright music tracks causing them to risk having their Twitch account banned. If you are a streamer that just NEEDS to have music available to your audience while streaming and doesn’t want to risk DMCA you have to know that you can’t just use your Soundcloud, Spotify or other music tracks in the background, you have to use stuff that is cleared and copyright free or licensed for you to stream on your channel. In order to do this there are a number of services, first you can find and get copyright free music from sites like YouTube Audio Library or copyright free playlists (though not guaranteed to be copyright free) or you can subscribe to a music track service which licenses you to use tracks on your streams, available options include Soundstripe ($11.25 per month is cheapest plan paid annually), EpidemicSound ($15 per month for personal plan), Artlist.io ($16.60 per month for music without sound effects) or by far the cheapest which is PretzelRocks at $4.99 per month for premium.
Just make sure you cover yourself and be careful to disable in-game music while streaming as even games you purchase and own may not allow you to stream the music without hitting a copyright strike.
On to this weeks streamers, first up is:
Hello all the lovely people reading. My name is Filip aka FroztedTV on the internet. I am 24 years old and I live in the beautiful northern parts of Sweden. I did my first stream July 9th 2018 and streamed for a few months, had to take a break due to mental health issues, came back and had to take a break again due to my dad getting cancer. Now I am back and feeling stronger than ever.
Everyone has their different reasons for streaming. Mine is that when I was young I was bullied a lot in school, when I came home I wanted to escape reality and found first Youtube and then Twitch. These 2 websites are one of the reasons why I am still alive, now when I feel so much better I want to give back and that is why I am streaming. I want to create a safespace where people who struggle in life in one way or another can come in to escape reality for a while. A place where they can gain energy and build themselves up with the love from me and my community. It may sound corny but if I manage to make one persons day a tiny bit better then all of the hours I put in is so much worth it.
I am a variety streamer where you can find many different games usually, right now I have really gotten in love with The Sims 4 though, so that is mostly what is getting streamed nowadays. For me it kind of doesn’t matter a lot of what I am playing to be honest, if I get to chat with my community I could play most games (Mostly cuz I would chat much more than play hehe)
I may not be the most superenergetic streamer there is. I am more of a calm one and that may not be for everyone but if you would ever need a break in life or a way to escape reality my community would gladly welcome you! <3 Big hugs to you! See you on the interwebs!

The Cosplay Wrestling Federation is a non-contact pro wrestling show without the wrestling. We’ve been been described as “The air guitar of pro wrestling” and “All talk now walk”
We tour anime conventions across the US where we started in California but managed to expand our base to Maryland, North Carolina, Seattle and Arizona
This is a great “tutorial” vid we made to show you what we do
Our team is open for anyone to join and many of our established performers started off as audience members this has allowed our ranks to grow and increased our influence to where we’ve secured Twitch partnership and even teaming up with an actual wrestling federation interacting with their wrestlers and using their ring.
On the Twitch side we’ve expanded our content to include variety playthroughs, pro wrestling tabletop RPGs and just recently we held our own virtual convention. We taught our fans the basics of wrestling promos, acting basics and even held our own version of “The Match Game.:

My name is Cody, I’m also known as crshadows. I play mainly xbox one games but hoping to stream pc games soon. I’m a soon to be 23 year old, while also being a dad to a 2 year old little boy who is my mini me. I mainly play different genre of games including Black Ops 4, Red Dead Redemption 2, Indie horror games, minecraft and a few others. I started gaming for as long as I can remember, my first console being the xbox 360. My little brother was my inspiration to start this streaming channel as well as starting my own youtube channel. He felt that with how I react to games it would entertain a few people like him. My goal for my channel is to make people laugh and genuinely entertain them with my outburst reactions to certain games. My little brother and my significant other, (Red Prosperine),have been huge supporters of my streaming and youtubing goal. I hope that when viewers see my streams they think about the stream in the long run. I hope to one day make a brand out of my name and be able to support other growing streamers such as myself. If anyone does pop by my streams even to say hello, it makes me feel so much better about my streaming capabilities. I feel that I’m doing something right when I see those viewers. I do hope in the near future I’ll be seen and heard by other streamers like myself. Thank you for giving me this opportunity for express who I am through this interview and I really hope I get to meet a lot of streamers soon!

Hi there love! My twitch name is JayV33 and I have been streaming since January of 2020. How did I come up with this name? My first name initial starts with J, and my last name initial starts with V. So, I thought, why not put the two together and make something unique. The 3’s represent E’s, but backwards! A little blurb about what I stream is that I love shooters, rpgs, and indie games. The niche I would be in is variety! I’m very open to playing many things. Currently, I am playing a lot of League of Legends, Valorant, and Outlast 2. I just started playing on PC two weeks ago because I just built my very first one ever! I also play on the Nintendo Switch as well! I would say one of the biggest reasons my community always comes back to watch is because I’m super talkative, friendly, and quirky. I always bring positive vibes to new friends and old friends. I’m always smiling, bubbly, and always want others to feel welcomed when they come to my channel! Scheduling wise, I am trying to stream 2-3 times a week! Other things about me is that I am a car enthusiast, favorite car is the NSX, or the BMW i8. I absolutely love being outside, food, and importantly video games! Feel free to stop by anytime, everyone and anyone is welcomed! Hope to see you soon!
