Likelihood to Recommend

OBS Studio

From simple streaming to bigger events, OBS has been able to handle all of it with full confidence from us. Have never questioned if it was going to be unreliable in a specific situation, even with minimal training. Software identified the external input source easily and had no issues setting that up (Blackmagic Mini Recorder), and great for pulling in separate audio from the computer input.

Very usable because it is free and has had a lot of people helping to suggest improvements and sponsors have allowed the product to grow in sophistication and suitability across a variety of situations and use needs. It is very logical to use once you get started, although the dashboard can seem intimidating at first.

Support Rating

OBS Studio

OBS Studio 9.2
Based on 4 answers
OBS Studio has been so easy to use that I have not had a need to reach out for support with the program. Actually, I am unsure if the program even offers any sort of support for its use, though I am sure that it does in some way. I give them a thumbs up for creating a program that, thus far, has not needed support.

Alternatives Considered

OBS Studio

OBS takes a lot more work to get started with than Google Hangouts, but you get a much more high quality output from it. It even works better with YouTube than Hangout, which is odd since it is also owned by Google. You can not set a poser image on a YouTube live stream when you use Hangouts, but you can with external programs like OBS. You can do so much with layout, like having two video sources on the screen at the same time, any style lower thirds; it is much more powerful.
