If you want to start streaming to your countless unused and currently unknown fans around the world, Open Broadcast Studio, also known as OBS, is one of the best tools. It is ideal for streaming games on YouTube or Twitch, or for broadcasting your latest live recording on Facebook while minimizing audio problems in the process.

OBS or Open Broadcaster Software is a free, open source software that helps users deliver video and audio via online services such as YouTube, Mixer, SoundCloud and more. The Display Capture module is intended for OBS video feeding, which sends the user’s display as a stream. You can use it to capture images of a live match during the playoffs, capture Photoshop images when you stream your illustrations, or capture images from the software while you are playing a live tutorial for it.

OBS allows you to easily capture your window, and all this can be configured in a few clicks (click on “Add Source” and follow the instructions). However, sometimes OBSs fail, preventing your window from being properly captured or designed so that you cannot see (and confirm) what material is being transmitted.
