Complicated is too mild of a word. I simply can not fathom why people are saying this software is so easy to use when it clearly is not. The harder I try to make OBS work the more I realize just how terrible this package really is. Blender and Maya have learning curves but nevertheless I can still work them and with that said, there is no excuse for OBS being so terrible. I must find an alternative.

Have used OBS many times to stream to Twitch, and also use it for recording videos to post later to YouTube. Initial setup can be a bit daunting, but once that's done it's a great software, not to mention free!

Free, and does a lot of shit. All you will ever need to get started with streaming.

Now all that's left is a good machine, a good setup and an audience to get going.

It's also cross-platform. So you can learn the program once and use it on Mac, Windows and Linux.

The best streaming software out there...and free!

OBS is without a doubt the best streaming software on the market, and it's great that it's free and open source. It has low resource usage, it has lots of great features, and is extremely versatile. I used to use Xsplit, but after trying OBS once I left it in the dust for good. Definitely give this one a shot.

This software can record to file and is excellent for capturing the screen.

great software for recording desktop operation, with voice and video from the webcam (using the croma key filter).

I haven't even scratched the surface of its features (I'm not a streamer), but it has everything I need to quickly record desktop footage.

A libre software reference for broadcasting as well as recording screens.
You can instant replay like ShadowPlay with the replay buffer, with even more settings.

Has defaults for most major streaming sites right out of the box, as well as tons of built-in recording options if you'd rather take your time and create more professional videos. This is the software used by many large YouTubers (including the largest, Pewdiepie), and for good reason.

It may feel overwhelming at first glance, but once you set it up for your hardware and realize that the defaults are good for most users, you quickly realize that the rest of the options encapsulate all of those cool little widgets you see on your favorite streamers' feeds, from live subscription counts to new donations from viewers, and everything in between.

In addition, there's no proprietary lock-in, so whether you stream or upload, all of your videos are in standard formats, so you can edit them with any video editor you favor.

Regarding some of the complaints, OBS Studio (as with any recording software, or any similar studio-type environment) is limited by your hardware's capabilities. Ideally, you'll want to use it with a second monitor (so you can keep an eye on your recording as you play/work), a second hard drive (recording may lag if you're doing something intensive and recording on the same hard drive, as the physical read/write head can only move so fast), and of course, a compatible microphone and camera (most good consumer items are compatible).

If you don't have a fairly modern system (built in the past 5 years), or you're doing a one-off stream or recording with no intention of doing another, OBS Studio's requirements and/or learning curve may be slightly higher than you're willing to endure, but for anyone who records more than once in a blue moon, OBS Studio provides 90%+ of what you'll get with the best commercial software, for free.

One thing that's improved greatly over the past year is the amount of documentation and text/video tutorials. Even experienced streamers with specialized needs should find answers for their issues while browsing the OBS wiki. New users can find hours of in-depth tutorials on YouTube and other websites, that not only cover OBS Studio, but streaming/recording techniques and issues in general.
