So What is OBS Studio?
Open Broadcaster Software aka OBS is free, open source software for video recording and live streaming. OBS Studio is the most used streaming software that Streamers use to Stream to Twitch, Mixer YouTube and many other providers.
Here you can find guides and tutorials how to setup the OBS Studio for best viewer experience and get your stream going nicely! There is also two other versions of OBS that might interest you. SLOBS has really deep integrations with StreamLabs alerts and OBS.Live has layouts in the cloud for lower end computers i highly suggest the OBS.Live option.
Good to know before you start to setup
If you have already streamed previously and you have the OBS Classic still. I would recommend you not to delete the classic OBS just yet. You can run both OBS Classic and OBS Studio from your computer separately. There has been some cases where old computers can’t handle the power of the OBS Studio that well and the studio will eat up your CPU more than the Classic.
So it’s better not to delete all your setups and scenes from classic just yet. But if you don’t yet have any OBS Studio program go right ahead! 🙂
