Playing music on stream is a must for most Twitch streamers. Twitch has strict guidelines on what music you can and can not stream on your channel. With the recent Twitch music TOS (Terms of Service) updates a lot of streamers have been getting hit with DMCA strikes against old clips and videos.
Also, bear in mind that this includes video games that have copyrighted music playing with the game itself. For example, Grand Theft Auto’s radio stations that play when you enter a vehicle.
To help you avoid any DMCA strikes we’ve compiled a list of websites that feature a great selection of royalty free music that you can use on your Twitch, Mixer or YouTube streams and not have to worry about copyright strikes.
