"Free video recording and live streaming app."
★ Winner of Best Screen Capturing Tool in 2017.
Below is the original review from our list of Top Free Screen Recording Software.
OBS is not just a program for screen recording. It is an advanced software that can record from multiple sources simultaneously (e.g. desktop, various programs, video camera feed, and others), which we can change at will. It is aimed mainly at gamers and those interested in live streaming with services such as Twitch.
Of course, you can just use it for simple screen recording purposes, but it would be like throwing away its potential if you used just it just for this.
It has two versions, OBS Classic and OBS Studio, with the latter being available for all operating systems (Windows, Mac and Linux), and including a wider range of features.
- It is completely free, without restrictions.
- It offers countless customization settings for all your recording needs.
- Supports all operating systems.
- It can be used for streaming in all popular services, such as YouTube, Twitch, Dailymotion, and others.
- Not very suitable for the less experienced users.
- Cannot stream in multiple services simultaneously.
