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

    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.

    This app is not specific for gamecasting and does not have the feature to pause broadcasting when the game is minimized.
