TopicIs OBS the best online streaming software?
Open-source software like OBS Studio is free to use, making it a popular choice for price-conscious live streamers. OBS Studio offers all the live streaming essentials you need to create a great looking broadcast but lacks the advanced features of professional paid software.
OBS streaming definitely deserves the first mention, as it is free, open-source and comes with tons of customization options. It has a very simple interface with all the information put in front of you. You are not required to change any special settings, just select the source which you would like to record and start recording.
You can live stream the video over popular websites like YouTube, Twitch, and Hitbox, etc. or save the video output in your PC for future reference (might have to tweak some settings). It is capable of recording in MP4 and FLV formats and it uses your PC’s GPU for High-Quality streaming. Here GPU Virtual Desktop can definitely be the game-changer.
Apart from basic video recording and saving features, it has many other side features perfect for video tutorials. These features include Picture-in-Picture mode, Custom Watermarks, and Push-to-Talk mode.
Key Features: Free, Open Source, Simple Interface, and Light application.
Compatibility: Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10, Version for Mac OS X and Linux are in the pipeline but the best performance can be experienced on the Cloud Virtual Desktop.
