Overall Satisfaction with OBS Studio

I use OBS studio to create and manage live streaming events on a variety of platforms. Everybody in my organization uses it because it solves the problem of broadcasting from your desktop and from your webcam throughout the internet and includes many features for free that would cost a lot of money from commercial applications.
  • 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.
  • OBS studio has not specifically affected ROI.
  • OBS has enabled us to expand our audience and attract new customers.
  • OBS has enabled us to start developing our own TV Channel
We checked out a lot of alternatives, which were simply too expensive for us when we are just in the startup stage of livestreaming.
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.
For a free product, a range of support is available. There are plenty of ways to find out answers to questions, because there are probably thousands of people using the product who are willing to share what they have learned. It usually works as designed, so needs for support are limited.

Would you buy OBS Studio again?

OBS studio is extremely well suited to anybody who wants to get started broadcasting from their desktop or their webcam via live streaming because the cost is extremely affordable, namely FREE. It has a very supportive community, and one of the sponsors is Facebook, so you know that it integrates well with that platform. If you really want to do a lot of switching, and add a lot of bells and whistles in terms of onscreen graphics, then you will have to look at commercial products.
