HONG KONG – March 9, 2017 – SplitmediaLabs, the makers of industry-leading live streaming and recording software XSplit, have today unveiled the new Player.me desktop app, which enables content creators to produce live streams and recordings in just a few clicks and manage their entire streaming presence across multiple platforms, including Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, Hitbox and Beam.

“Becoming a content creator is not easy, first you have to know how to create the content and then you need to make it look good so it can appeal to an audience. Then, once you’ve made the commitment, both in time and money, it can be even harder to get discovered,” said Sean Fee, co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Player.me. “By leveraging XSplit’s experience we’ve managed to shape the Player.me app into a product that can tackle the major issues content creators face today. With Player.me it’s easy to create, easy to make your content look great and easier to find an audience of like minded players.”
By combining XSplit’s broadcast technology and Strexm’s powerful overlay integration it’s now easier than ever to get started with professional looking broadcasts from day one. Player.me will launch with a host of features including an overlay editor and hundreds of overlays ready to customise. Content creators will be able to use the built in streaming and recording feature or continue to use XSplit or OBS while taking advantage of the hundreds of beautiful overlays offered by the Player platform. The app also helps players manage their multiple gaming, social and content accounts in a scalable way by aggregating them on their profile and providing them with handy tools for cross posting or uploading to them.
“Our goal has been to create the ultimate content creation tool mixed with the ultimate gaming community platform in one easy to use application,” continued Fee. “We want to bring the gaming community together by giving them the tools they need to create great content, share that content with their friends and create and engage with communities around the games they love.”
Players and viewers can use the Player.me application not only to follow and connect with the content creators they already know and love, but to discover new creators tailored to their tastes. With over 50,000 game pages to explore the application helps players expand their circles, discovering new content, groups, games and events based on the games they already play and the creators they already follow.
Player.me was acquired by SplitmediaLabs in July, 2016, as part of the company’s $10 million investment strategy to create a platform that connects the entire gaming community with the content they love, enhancing the gaming experiences of players everywhere.
Creators and players interested in trying out the new Player.me desktop app can sign up at app.player.me to request access to the beta. The app is also being demoed for the first time at PAX East, XSplit booth #11061.
