Hi,

When logged in, twitch.tv/broadcast is in fact the correct destination to get your stream key.

You should only need your Twitch username and password when using XSplit to stream to our site. If you use the stream key, make sure to only use your username and the stream key and remove the password.

If you cannot get your stream key at twitch.tv/broadcast, your account is likely a Justin.tv account.

The easiest way to check is to go to twitch.tv/<yourusername>, where you enter your username at <yourusername>. If the channel redirects to JTV, your account is a JTV account. To get your account switched, go to http://help.twitch.tv/customer/portal/emails/new.

Your Twitch key is a means to authenticate you with our system. This is typically used by broadcasting software, such as OBS and XSplit.

We no longer move accounts from Justin.tv to Twitch as of October 31, 2013. This option to move to Twitch was removed from JTV in December 2012. We believe this to be enough time for users to have requested a switch.

As JTV and Twitch share the same user database, you will need to create a new account on Twitch to use our site.

FYI: Deleting your account on JTV will not allow you to recreate the account on Twitch. The account will remain in deleted state. We do not clear deleted accounts.

So I have used your advice and it turns out that my account is a twitch.tv account and for some reason when i got to Dashboard>Stream Key>show key it does not show my key it almost seems like the button is broken, along with the chat not working at all it just keeps loading and its all glitched up http://prntscr.com/2ewd10 seems like its disabled.

If you are on OBS and trying to stream, would you be able to stream to twitch from Twitch/Justin.tv?
