      OBS is very difficult to use and very time consuming just to get a stream going.

      gtaking best standard feature broadcaster software in this day and age. when you open it you see that you can even start broadcasting with your primary monitor without a camera, without any additional hardware other than a single microphone!

      I can do everything I did with Xplit using OBS. Vidéo intro, green/blue screen background. Sometime it takes time to handle but not so much.
