You can broadcast your gameplay live to Twitch on Origin (9.1). Our broadcasting technology, currently in beta, is controlled via Origin In Game.

To get started: 
1. Press Shift F1 (or your custom hotkey) to launch Origin In Game.
2. Select the Video Broadcast icon at the bottom of the screen.
3. Log in to your Twitch account, or create one by selecting Sign Up.
4. Enter a Game Name and adjust your volume settings.
5. Select Start Broadcast.
When you are ready to stop broadcasting, just start Origin In Game and select Stop Broadcast. 
Please note: Some games, particularly non-Origin titles you  have added to your library, may cause conflicts with Origin In Game and may not be able to support broadcasting. Additionally, broadcasting your game takes up bandwidth and may affect your frame rate. If your gameplay slows considerably while streaming, consider reducing the resolution of your broadcast.
