Overall Satisfaction with OBS Studio

OBS Studio is very popular among faculty members. With the university moving onto remote teaching, there was a need for a reliable software to create a proper asynchronous learning content. OBS was the best choice.
  • organize/hide content in the editor window
  • converting mkv to mp3
  • intuitively easy to use even with no instructions
  • editing-montaging videos
  • easier way to adjust webcam image (templates)
  • i wish mic choice would show up in the window. sometimes the wrong mic is selected and notice too late (after recording)
  • easy-to-use
  • reliability
  • Students loved my content and OBS gave me tools to create it
I first was recommended beta version of mmhmm but it was not available for Windows OS. I tried it when it became available but it was too late for me to switch and I stayed with OBS. OBS did everything I needed and it is free

Do you think OBS Studio delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with OBS Studio's feature set?


Did OBS Studio live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of OBS Studio go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy OBS Studio again?


For asynchronous teaching - absolutely. For synchronous teaching I would not recommend it - too many apps to handle (e.g. Teams or Zoom + slides + OBS).
