Free, open source software for live streaming and recording:

Open Broadcaster Software is free and open source software for video recording and live streaming.

Originally I made Open Broadcaster Software for myself because I thought "why should I pay a subscription for software I could probably write?" And so, I did and Open Broadcaster Software evolved into somewhat of a monster of a project. That's pretty much the Open Broadcaster Software story.

I hope people can make use of Open Broadcaster or learn something from it.
