What is OBS?
OBS, or Open Broadcaster Software Studio, is a free and open source for video recording and live streaming. The best part is that OBS Studio is available for all major OS platforms, such as Windows, Linux, and macOS.
Using OBS, you can simultaneously capture audio and video from different sources such as webcam, screens, and external devices. Additionally, you can mix audio and video in real time, enabling smooth transitions and overlays.
