OBS Studio (a rewrite of the original Open Broadcaster) is a comprehensive open-source package for video recording and live streaming.

The program supports multiple sources, including media files, games, web pages, application windows, webcams, your desktop, microphone and more.

These sources can be combined. For example, you could include a web development tool, a browser window with a live preview of the site you're updating, and a microphone to tell the viewers what you're doing.

A Record option can save your show/ demonstration/ game/ presentation as an FLV/ MP4/ MOV/ TS/ M3U8 video with your choice of encoder and settings.

Alternatively, there's support for live streaming via Twitch, YouTube, hitbox.tv, DailyMotion, beam.tv, Livecoding.tv, Facebook Live or Restream.io.

The program doesn't make much of an effort to lead you through all this, but it doesn't take long to figure out the basics. Add a source, explore the settings, click Start Recording and check the video results.

What's new in 25.0.8 (see changelog for more)?

- Added status icons next to the timers for recording and streaming
- Added white icons for dock titles
- Added an actual name for files when browsing for LUT files
- Fixed media source not closing file when inactive
- Fixed certain services not properly updating their server information on Windows
- Fixed multiview not rendering correctly on macOS
- Fixed a minor memory leak
- Removed the requirement for the replay buffer hotkey now that there's a button to record a replay

Verdict:

OBS Studio could be easier to use, but you'll soon learn the basics, and overall it offers plenty of video recording/ streaming power.
