Streamlabs OBS Alerts Not Working – Troubleshooting Tips
The main use for the Streamlabs platform though is the stream alerts which are extremely handy helping you display what is happening on your stream.
Unfortunately, sometimes the Streamlabs alerts are not working properly and some troubleshooting is necessary.
Streamlabs OBS Alerts Not Working
As with everything else, the very first thing you should be doing when things are not working is restarting and re-logging into your accounts.
Log out from your Streamlabs OBS account and close down Streamlabs OBS. You can also restart your PC just in case.
Next, you need to make sure you have properly configured your alerts widget in your OBS Streamlabs. Make sure that your source is visible and you have your alerts enabled.
If you can see but cannot hear your alerts make sure you have not muted them in your recent events list.
If your Streamlabs OBS alerts are still not working you should also go to your Advanced settings and make sure that hardware acceleration is enabled for your sources.
Following these steps will fix most of the issues related to alerts not showing up on your stream but in case your specific issue still persists you can visit the official troubleshooting page that covers even more advanced fixes for your widgets.
