Open Broadcaster Software Reviews

Great streaming software

about Open Broadcaster Software · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

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!

Twitch and game streaming runs on OBS

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.

As a freeware guru, it's my purpose to find the best free software out there.

This program is undoubtedly the best free gaming broadcaster ever.

no not really, there are problems with the software.

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.

The program is alright for certain places but not ok for everything. I once try to broadcast a very action gameplay with many effects and it was in HD but the live audience only saw lag. Recording isn't any different, it will still lag at certain games.

OBS is an easy to use program for recording videos locally and streaming. Setting up the interface is fairly straightforward and the quality is good.

Tested and working with WIndows 10 Creators Update (2017-05-13)

After having multiple issues with another open source screen and audio capture tool I decided to test OBS. Unlike many of the other comments, I found the software easy to configure and working perfectly.

Definitely, recommend OBS over other open source alternatives.

A shining example of great open source development

about Open Broadcaster Software · · Helpful Not helpful

OBS Studio is probably my favourite software of all time. You may think that OBS would be used exclusively for gaming purposes... far from it! Yes, you can easily set it up for streaming content to YouTube, Twitch, and the like, but it's also a great screen recorder software for educational videos and a great podcast recorder! It allows for extensive audio input configuration and easy stereo-mix recordings (remember that?) for a podcast session.

The software performs incredibly well even in outdated computers. My almost-10-year-old laptop can pull some recordings at lower resolutions.

Powerful and a bit clunky

It's a hell of a job to get it working. On one PC we did it, on the next PC: no way. What a waste of time this was!!!
