Use Poll in OBS Studio

Both alerts and poll results function as browser source widgets, simplifying their integration into OBS Studio. Upon publishing, you will receive three URLs: one for poll results, one for alert widgets, and one for voting. Learn how to utilize browser source by referring to the OBS Studio Browser Source Documentation.

Poll Results URL: Insert this URL into an 800x800 Browser Source window and place it within one of your scenes. It will automatically update after every vote.

Poll Alert URL: Insert this URL into an 800x800 Browser Source window and place it within one of your scenes. It will display an alert every time a user votes in your poll.

Vote URL: Share this URL with your audience to gather votes. You can distribute either this link or the QR code for convenience.
