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.

      mblithium ScreenStudio is one of the few programs I found to make lives on linux similar to what OBS does. It is functional for those who don't have newer drivers.

    10. There exist a lot of screen recorders, but all lack the speed for doing some full screen recording. The speed is just to low or cpu to high. Online compression can only be done with some real-time disk eating codecs.... Even the 300$ cam... studio is slow.
