OBS A Great Way to Stream

  • February 04, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
OBS is an open-source streaming software. There is a great and large community of developers so that you can achieve all the tasks of more expensive software products. OBS is easy to stream live or record video and add effects, overlays and transitions. It supports plugins to enhance graphics, transitions, audio, etc.
What do you dislike about the product?
Because it is open source and has many options, it can take some time to figure out the best way to perform a task that works best for you. It would help if you spent some time reading through the support forum or surfing youtube for tips.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
OBS has been a quick way to stream large videos or long videos to several platforms. It has become a good tool to control and edit live video on the fly acting as a switcher and an encoder.

OBS The Best Software For Live Video Broadcast Streaming Via Multi-Platform

  • February 03, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
OBS – Live Streaming Server allows you to broadcast and record your video, capture and mix video/audio in real time, create scenes, and stream on the most popular streaming platforms like Twitch, Facebook Live, YouTube, and so many more. If you're at all familiar with any layering software like Photoshop or Adobe Premiere, you'll find setting up scenes in OBS so easy.
What do you dislike about the product?
There are a lot of annoying quirks to OBS. If you have layers grouped together and you move one object, it can sometimes mess up your whole scene. It's really annoying that I had to figure out that I have to move the layer out of the group, before moving or adjusting its size.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
As an entertainer, I had to suddenly find new ways to deliver my entertainment (which in most cases is live DJ'd music) when the pandemic hit. I've been streaming several days a week and creating my own brand with the look of my stream, thanks to how easy it is with OBS.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
OBS has an amazing community of developers and users and I recommend the message boards on the OBS Project website as well as in the Github community. Often there is someone who is trying to solve the same problem you have.

Best service out there!

  • January 31, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
We stream live game shows out of a studio. OBS is our preferred software to use for all shows. We also love that we can use it with most video conferencing platforms.
What do you dislike about the product?
The only issue that we had was to find a workaround for streaming OBS as a webcam. That process could be more straightforward, but it is doable. Other then that feature it is flawless.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We needed a service that would allow us to turn our live gameshows into a service that we could offer for virtual event entertainment. OBS has provided that service to us and is an amazing asset.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Take your time and research how to do things. This is a big platform with a ton of capabilities. Learn how to do what you want and then do it.

What do you like best about the product?
Easy to connect for either recording or live stream. Ability to display exactly what I want shown.
What do you dislike about the product?
Can only move one scene at a time, would love to be able to choose several at once.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Allows us to record church services live with song lyrics and sermon slides displayed in real time rather than having to insert them after an initial recording.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Play around with it, there's a lot of options to get the scenes to show exactly what you want from a number of sources.

I can't believe it's free software, it's so powerful and versatile

  • July 14, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
I can't believe OBS is free! It's the most powerful streaming software with so many options for video, audio, or broadcasting your computer or gaming screen. I have used it to stream to YouTube. But most of the time I use OBS to record video from 3 camera angles and multiple audio sources in my craft studio. When connected to an Elgato Stream Deck, this software becomes a multimedia switcher so I can move to different camera angles with the touch of a button. What once required a team of videographers can now be done by one person. The software was a game-changer for my video production on YouTube, Creative Fabrica, and Skillshare.
What do you dislike about the product?
It's a little complicated to learn. Most people open it up and get intimidated because of all the panels. But after watching a few YouTube videos on using OBS, I figured it out.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I needed video on me talking to the camera, but also my worktable and embroidery machine. I used to record on 3 different cameras and then painfully edit those videos together. Now all those cameras are connected to a computer running OBS and I can switch to the camera angle I need by pressing a button. I can also share my computer screen or show graphics and video during my tutorials. Sometimes I even show all 3 cameras at once so my viewers can see me multitasking. My time editing video is greatly reduced thanks to OBS.
