Many players encountered various issues when trying to stream games on Xbox One. One user said the following on Microsoft’s forum:

Every time I try to stream Outer Wilds, a message pops up saying “This game doesn’t allow broadcasting” Help please.

So, the problem seems to be affecting Outer Wilds. Another user, which is also an Xbox ambassador, came with a possible solution:

There are a few games out there that don’t allow streaming directly from the console. I don’t think this is one of them though. Try starting up a different game then close it and launch Outer Wilds and try to start streaming. That can sometimes fix the issue. 

Still, this is not the case for Outer Wilds, since the game allows streaming directly from Xbox.

Streaming doesn’t work. Who’s the culprit?

The problem is confirmed by another user, stating the following:

I’m having the same problem and I have played and streamed the last two days just fine. Now all of a sudden “This game doesn’t allow broadcasting”

So, the issue is on Mixer/Xbox’s end, because the Outer Wilds developers said that the game should broadcast. Until now, there’s no solution to the problem.
