  3. Use 'Cut' to remove this from the 'Runtime' folder and select the Unreal Project that you want to install it to. 
  4. Open the Unreal Project folder and check if there is already a 'Plugins' folder inside.

  6. If there is no 'Plugins' folder in your Unreal Project folder then create a new folder, call it 'Plugins' and then past the OWLLivestreaming Toolkit folder inside:

If your Project is a Blueprint Project (not C++) please convert to a C++ project as follows
