StreamYard Business users can now upload custom fonts to use on streams!

These fonts will be used for banners, comments, display names, and tickers.

Here's how to upload and use a custom font

  1. Find a font! We recommend using a site like Dafont or Google's font library to find a font to use, though you can use any supported font.
    For this tutorial, we'll be using "KG Shake it Off".
    Make sure to take into account your font's license and any required attributions.
  2. Download your font of choice. It will download as a zip file. Double click the zip file to unzip the file and extract the folder of fonts. 
  3. Create/enter a StreamYard studio, and click the Brand tab on the right.
  4. Click the edit/pencil icon to the right of Font to open the font window, and click Add new font.

  5. Enter a name to display for your font.
    We recommend using the name of your selected font, but you can enter anything.

  6. Upload your font files using the Upload buttons for each font weight.
    Depending on the font you choose, you may have multiple files, or only one.
    If you have one file, upload it as the Regular font.
    If you have multiple files, try to match them up to the requested font weights (Light, Regular, Bold etc) for the best results.

  7. Click Save, and your fonts will be processed. This will convert your fonts to the required formats, and may take a few seconds.

That's all! You can select which font set to use with the dropdown box in the Brand tab under Font.
