SE.Live is a plugin that adds Streamelements features directly into OBS Studio, including your live chat, activity feed, media requests, etc.
In this guide I will show you how to install it on the Steam version of OBS Studio.
Installing SE.Live / Downloading the plugin file
First you need to install SE.Live from Streamelements so that you can copy over the plugin file to the Steam version of OBS Studio.
You can download SE.Live here. – [streamelements.com]
The plugin is only available for Windows.
The installation process is similar to OBS Studio, just make sure you remember which folder you’ve installed the program.
You can download the plugin file here – [google.com] if you don’t want to go through the whole process of installing SE.Live.
Don’t worry, the file does not contain any viruses or any other harmful things. You can check it through VirusTotal – [virustotal.com] if you don’t trust it.
If you have downloaded the file directly from the link above, skip to section: “Putting the file into the Steam version”
Extracting the plugin file (if you have SE.Live installed)
Now that you have installed SE.Live, it’s time to extract the plugin file.
Open the installation folder in File Explorer.
It can be found here if you haven’t changed the default setting:
C:\Program Files (x86)\obs-studio
The plugin folder can be found here:
Inside the folder, find and copy paste obs-streamelements.dll somewhere accessible like your desktop or a new folder.
Putting the file into the Steam version
Now you need to put the plugin file into the Steam version of OBS Studio.
You can easily access the installation folder through the Steam client.
Right-click OBS Studio in your library > Properties… > Local files > Browse…
Open OBS Studio in your library > click on the cog icon > Properties… > Local files > Browse…
Like SE.Live OBS, the plugin folder can be found here:
Simply put the obs-streamelements.dll file in there.
Using the plugin on the Steam version
The only thing left to do is open OBS Studio through Steam to check if the plugin works.
If done correctly, you will see an update prompt from SE.Live:
You need to update it, otherwise the plugin won’t work.
Updating will download & open the SE.Live setup, close OBS and install the necessary files to get the plugin working.
After the installation you can uncheck Launch SE.Live when I finish and Create Desktop Shortcut as they will open OBS Studio regularly without Steam features enabled.
Now you can log into Streamelements with your streaming account and enjoy SE.Live OBS through Steam!
Make sure to uninstall the other SE.Live you’ve downloaded if you don’t want two separate versions of OBS Studio.
Uninstalling SE.Live on Steam
If you no longer wish to use SE.Live on the Steam version of OBS Studio, go into the installation folder and delete everything. Don’t worry, it won’t delete your settings or profiles as they are stored in %APPDATA%\Roaming.
Then, verify integrity through the Steam client.
Right-click OBS Studio in your library > Properties… > Local files > Verify integrity of software files…
Open OBS Studio in your library > click on the cog icon > Properties… > Local files > Verify integrity of software files…
After that Steam should download and install all the files for OBS Studio.
