This software is completely free, no donation charges, no monthly or yearly fees, download and use it.

No intermediaries

No web page/company stays between you and your donation or twitch notification, no one is gathering any data on you, people who donate - You are in control. You can deploy the application to a server or run it from local file system.


Every aspect of the notifications can be changed, every component was build/created using open source tools, change it as you please.

What is it?

In general Free Stream Notifications is a set of tools running on your own PC or deployed on a server enabling you to have live stream notifications in obs/xsplit/vMix (it should also work on linux and Macs - didn't test it though).

Why I made it?

Current stream notification systems work based on external web page. You need to register to that service(page). That service can and will gather personal information about you, people who donate, followers, subscribers but also about every transaction that has been made through your donation button. I don't like that and because I want to be in control of my own paypal, and the fact that those services are not free motivated me to create this alternative.

FSN Features

Run the application from your file system or deploy it to a webs server that supports java applications, details how to do that can be found on youtube.

Tracking donations - donation tracking works as any other paypal listener, using paypal API, only difference is that it is integrated into FSN.jar. No external source is handling your donation, no one stays between the donation and the notification. Paypal is "talking" only with FSN.jar, wherever you will deploy it, no external company will gather any data about your transactions and personal information about people who donate remain safe - You are in control.

Twitch notifications - FSN is monitoring twitch, simple html web page will periodically ask twitch for changes, using twitch API, about last followers, subscribers.

You can modify every aspect of those notifications, sound, css, animation, animation speed, twitch "asking" interval. For details please visit my youtube.

Patreon Monitor - Patreon does not have official API yet but that does not mean we cant monitor the changes in your patreon profile html page. This tool will do that and when any change is detected notification is triggered.

Important notice

This app is implemented using mongo 2.6. If you use MongoDB 3.2+ follow instruction below.

Starting with MongoDB 3.2 the default storage engine has changed from MMAPv1 to WiredTiger.
Neither MongoDB nor FSN will show errors in the console when WiredTiger is used by MongoDB, BUT FSN will not be able to save any settings so it will be completely broken!

How to fix FSN with MongoDB 3.2+:

  • Clear the C:\data\db folder if you started MongoDB 3.2+ without additional commands (MMAPv1 is incompatible with the database files created by WiredTiger)
  • Start MongoDB using: "mongod.exe --storageEngine=mmapv1"
