Pros and Cons

  • OBS Studio makes it easy to connect with streaming service providers
  • OBS Studio makes it easy to switch from source to source during your broadcast
  • OBS Studio makes it easy to design and edit what your viewers will see.
  • As a FREE product, there is really very little to improve upon.
  • It would be great if multiple devices could be networked.
  • Maybe the user interface could be a bit prettier, but it is very functional.

Pros and Cons

  • Very easy to add different sources for both video and audio and arrange them.
  • Easily convert (remix) recorded files into a different format.
  • Sometimes when you close the program, it doesn't fully close, which causes issues if you try to open it again. Then you need to force quit to resolve the issue.
  • Frequent updates, but they are pretty quick.

OBS Studio - Great option for those evaluating the ROI of streaming, or streaming veterans

Pros and Cons

  • Simple and ease of use - get streaming pretty quickly
  • Multiple options for sources - if the switcher goes down or you need to switch over to a different external input, you can default to another file or image, or just keep all your inputs 100% in OBS
  • Options for bitrate and output size easy to find and change - great if your internet signal isn't great, you can adjust accordingly
  • Being able to record simultaneously - eliminates the need for an external recorder
  • More control over queuing extra sources, if using a video file, perhaps timecode and countdown cues

Pros and Cons

  • It is easy to start with a product that is free, there isn't the financial overhead to get started with it.
  • There are a lot of plugins that you can use to add lots of custom functionality. You can make your broadcasts whatever you want with it.
  • The quality of the videos that come out of OBS studio is very high, I am very happy with the results I get with it.
  • The UI can be improved, the layout can be made a little more intuitive
  • There is a high learning curve, the process of learning the program can be made easier
  • The process of installing and incorporating plugins can be improved.
