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.

StepShot

StepShot is perfect for showing your audience how they are supposed to navigate a new system you have implemented. You can take them from a login screen all the way through any technical process you want them to follow. The product is not ideal, however, for documenting a process that does not have tangible steps. For example, a process we have created includes some reflective thinking about alignment or outcomes in order to work, this can be articulated in the text area of the screen captures but doesn't really capture our message.

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

I have only run into an issue once, which I believe was due to a newly released feature (cloud storage). I was running into issues with the functionality on my Mac. The team was incredibly helpful in both troubleshooting the issue by jumping on screen sharing sessions, as well as providing multiple releases for me to test to fix the problem!

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.

StepShot

While StepShot provides us with more options for modifying our screen recording and adding helper information for our audience, iSpring is a little more accessible since you can connect directly to YouTube for videos. Since most of our work doesn't require a video tutorial, we are happy with StepShot, but iSpring, like many other screen recorders, is a little more "well rounded" when it comes being able to connect our guides with our intended audience.

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

StepShot

  • I've only got one point here, and it's that I think it's paid for itself. The amount of questions that don't need to be asked and time that can be saved justifies the price 100%.
