Yes, I can stream on Switch, and your friend is right. You do need a capture card to stream on Switch, but if you not wanna spend the money, there are some ways for you to stream Switch on Discord or other platforms.

Here I will recommend you ask for the help of Streamlabs. Streamlabs is very useful open-source live streaming software and is compatible with both desktop devices and phones. With its help, you can stream on Switch anytime, anywhere.

Let's check out how to stream on Switch with Streamlabs now:

💡You should prepare:

  • Your smartphone
  • Download Streamlabs on the device
  • Switch and the game you want to stream
  • A holder to keep your phone

🔥Steps you need to follow:

  • Open Streamlabs and customize the options according to your need.
  • Choose the bitrate, resolution, and frame rate of the streaming.
  • Find a place to hold your phone now.
  • Ensure that your Switch is placed and your phone can see the details of the gameplay for streaming.
  • Hit the Go Live option and start streaming on Switch.

Also, here is a pro tip for you. If you want to review the live broadcast after it's done or want to upload your gameplay video to platforms like YouTube or Twitter, you can also use a professional screen recorder to record your gameplay at the same time. 

In the current market, EaseUS RecExperts is a good choice, which not only provides a high-quality screen recording function but also supports you to use it for video editing directly.
