OBS Studio Alternatives

Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) is a rare gem in the world of screen recording and streaming. Besides being free and open source, it works the same across all desktop platforms.

OBS is probably used most often for live streaming. Other apps with similar streaming features can be filtered with the live-streaming tag or with the live-broadcasting feature.

It's also one of the most heavily used tools for simple screen recording. Alternative screen recorders can be filtered with the screen-recorder feature.

Most alternatives are freemium or commercial apps. Similar free apps can be found with the open-source license filter.
