It can be hard to find a good screen recorder, there are so many to choose from. OBS Studio might be exactly what you are looking for – it is a free open source screen recorder, that works with Windows, Mac and Linux. It will fit all your needs, whether you are recording game play, video tutorials and streaming. OBS Studio is the best free screen recorder out there for those starting out on a small budget.
What Does It Capture
OBS Studio is capable of recording many different sources such as:
- Audio Input Capture
- Audio Output Capture
- Browser Source
- Color Source
- Display Capture
- Game Capture
- Image Slide Show
- Media Source
- Text (GDI+)
- Video Capture Device
- Window Capture
You simply just have to click on sources in the main interface and choose what source you want to capture.
Where you can Stream
OBS Studio allows you to stream to many major streaming platforms such as:
- Twitch (There is an option to pick the best server automatically)
- Daily Motion
- Facebook Live
You can even mix multiple sources and create one seamless broadcast. Example: you can record webcam, microphone and footage all at the same time. Keep in mind mixing can be intimidating when live, so it would be best to practice by doing some simple recordings first, till you understand how everything works.
OBS Studio is a free open source screen recorder worth checking out. It gives the user a lot of options to choose from when it comes to recording and streaming. OBS Studio offers a lot more features then most capture software in the market does – even compared to the ones that you pay for. OBS gives you the option to set your own hotkeys and has a lot of settings that you can adjust to fit your needs. OBS Studio is easy to use once you understand where all the settings are, which doesn’t take long to learn.
