Game-streaming services like Twitch TV are becoming bigger and bigger. Whether you want to let your friends watch you play a game or try to build up a larger audience, streaming is easy.
Note that Twitch only supports public streams at this time. If you want to broadcast a private stream, you may want to try Justin.tv, a competing service.
Really? Is this kind of like how Diet Coke's competitor is Coke?
EDIT to clarify: Twitch.tv is a subsidiary of Justin.tv made specifically for gaming streams. They're not competing.
Streaming is the easy part. Getting someone to stick around watching your stream is a different story.
Also worth noting is that live streaming via software is bound to slow down your game. I usually have trouble playing while streaming just because the frame rates aren't as consistent anymore. The ideal solution is to use a hardware recorder/encoder like Avermedia's Live Gamer portable. That should eliminate the processing stress on your computer and let the games run much smoother.
Worth mentionning that with NVIDIA graphics card of series 600-700 (and newest series when those come out), using Geforce Experience you can easily capture to save and/or stream to twitch with minimal performance drop.
