      Hey thanks for reading. The internet’s a great place to start finding information. There’s a ton of video tutorials on StreamLabs itself to help you get started. If you stick around a bit I’ll be posting tutorials on settings and configurations that I think that are vital for any streamer.

      Thanks for posting. 😀

    This appears to be a genuinely comprehensive piece of software.  Do you know what company is behind it, or is it independent?  I’d be willing to take a flyer on a small startup if the software is really good, but it’s always helpful if there is someone, or some organization of substantial size backing it.

    Thanks for the post, really good information.

      StreamLabs is an independent company. Its founder, Ali Moiz has been in the gaming industry for over 15 years now, founding Peanut Labs and is a head of a an ESports team. He’s been seen on E3 and Games Done Quick. I’ve provided in the article a few top streamers on Twitch who swear by the software and if you click on their website, there are way more users also on a variety of stream platforms (Twitch, Mixer, Youtube Gaming, Facebook, etc.) who also use the product.

      Thanks for the feedback!

    I have been interested in streaming for some time but as you mention it has been a bit complicated for me because I do not have the technical background to carry it out. However, after reading your post, I am really excited about the possibilities that StreamLabs OBS offers. I still have some anxiety to get into that world, but it’s something I want to do, and I definitely think it’s worth a lot of time to learn and master it.

      I had the same issue to when I first used OBS back in 2015. I wanted to join my friends in creating video and livestreaming on Twitch when it was still in its infancy but I couldn’t get my head wrapped in setting it up or had the time to. (I was still very much in school and school was my primary focus.) With StreamLABS OBS I was able to set up my Stream in less than an hour and get started!

      At least StreamLabs is free, you don’t have anything to lose! The best way to dive deep into it! 🙂

    So I dunno anything about StreamLabs OBS, but I have regular OBS (version 22.0.2 to be exact) and used it for Jet Set Radio + that one Sea of Thieves Beta stream I did a year ago. It certainly carried out what I wanted it to do. (The only true obstacle I faced was 100% my fault, aka having two or three unsynced layers of audio going because I had opened my stream page in multiple Chrome tabs to make sure I was successfully streaming and then forgot to close them.)

    That said, while OBS may sport a lot of deeper function that I never got to, the interface is so classically-unvarnished that I already know I’d have a hard time working out the details of each variable (a problem I think I have with old-school open-source software in general). StreamLabs OBS appears to be way more accessible at least based on your images, so if I decide I wanna stream/record again I’ll be sure to switch.

      Yeah, that was the biggest thing with OBS I found was that it was really bad for me to figure out how to use the interface and optimizing. For me it was spending too much time trying to get right so that my viewers won’t get turned off by me trying to make it work. I’d rather save time trying to set it up and get started in streaming.

      I suppose OBS requires a lot of front-end time getting it right, but I’d rather get started right away.
