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.

I really like that this tool is a one stop shop that allows you to enter clear cut instructions for any user to follow. I've had very positive feedback from users describing how they like the format of the instructions and how easy it is to follow. I've actually showed employees how to use the tool and they have purchased for use in their departments

Cons

OBS Studio

  • Overwhelming layout
  • Sometimes the program continues to screen record even when it has been stopped, saving way too many videos.

  • I would like to be able to make the backgound of an image invisible more easily.
  • It would be interesting to have access to a lasso tool like the one in Photoshop.
  • I could not find a third one, I am very satisfied with the product.

I think that the tool is excellent for what it is being used for. I particuarly like the ability to capture content from the screen whilst using the scroll wheel on my mouse. It is very annoying when your try to capture something with grab and you can't scroll which leads to multiple images

It's button centric for easy access to every feature. Everything allows undo! It works like any other standard Windows application. Everyone can be a professional without having to select every feature yourself by using the built in styles with just one click of a button in most cases. Every button is clearly labeled too.

We've never needed to contact support. Not sure if they have it since it's an open-source program.

I never had to reach out to Snagit. There was only once that I actually reached out to support for assistance. They did take some time to respond but nothing out of reason. They were unable to solve that one issue but it was an advanced issue that could only be resolved by a re-image of a machine.

It's a simple next next finish install. The SnagIt Library in the user profile should probably be backed up to make sure they have access to their old screen captures. We frequently will go back to previous captures and add context bubbles etc. when software changes to show the "old" vs "new". Also, go to SnagIt's website and download the additional Stamp Sets for the user. These are terrific. I wish there was one download to get them all, but you have to download and install them one set at a time. It's worth it - especially for training how-to's.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Our staff often uses MS Snipping Tool which comes installed on the PC. Extremely limited in its abilities and only capable of capture still images, we rely on Snipping for quick cut and paste captures. The image resolution created by this application doesn't provide sufficient quality for our documents and training.

Return on Investment

OBS Studio

  • Great ROI! Can't imagine using a different software
  • Enables us to provide client with multiple options for a streaming presentation
Travis Gray | TrustRadius Reviewer

Snagit

  • So much easier to convey concepts and issues inside and outside the organization. Reduces the needs for meetings and overly repetitive emails/ phone calls almost 10 fold once all parties can see what is being described.
  • I have captured videos for training and step by step guides which anyone can view at any time across the continent freeing up my time to focus on other pressing issues.
