Last up, let’s take a look at OBS Studio. This encoding option is a free and open-source live streaming video software package. OBS supports RTMP streaming, switching between multiple sources, capture cards, webcams, chroma key (green screen), video and audio files, and application windows. Though it’s light on features, it’s quite easy to use, even for those new to live streaming. Note that OBS does not support any plugins.

However, community members have developed a wide range of plugins that broadcasters can use to add features to the more basic OBS Studio. These include NDI, a feature formerly only found on high-end encoders. Another notable plugin supports pulling Tweets into your streams in real time. Finally, do note that OBS does not support multi-bitrate streaming.



OBS is available for Mac, Windows, and Linux.



Free! OBS Studio is open-source. There is no cost to accessing and using this software.
