OBS Studio, you should be perfectly fine with 1080p60 software streaming with 4500kbps bitrate.

OpenBroadcasterSoftware is the ONLY realistic option available today...

Other recorders such as FRAPS either charge and put an UGLY MASSIVE banner across your recording and are so resource intensive you can't play the game at its full potential, or cause other issues. FRAPS has the banner, is incredibly resource intensive, and basically makes games unplayable especially if your system could play them before at 40fps solid - they end up at 1 to 5fps after...

There are recorders by nVidia which I haven't tested. Honestly, once I found OBS, I stopped searching for anything else.


It is so incredibly feature rich, and it isn't resource intensive at all. I barely lose any fps when recording - although streaming is a little bit more intensive so I typically record - however I could easily stream without losing much performance ( and I'm on a 10 year old machine Q6600 3.0 now QX9650 with 8GB DDR2 400 [ should actually be 800 but for some reason the computer doesn't see it as 800 overclocked or not at 800 cpu-z reports 400 or so ] 1080 GTX Gaming X for 4k 1ms gaming monitor, 750 TI for 2 to 4 extra monitors at 1080p each. ).


OBS has a TON of support for plugins, Streaming plugins, encoders, Scenes, profiles, video profiles which can be switched which contain their own set of scenes, etc... So you can set up a Game Streaming profile and have a scene set for each game.. Or you can set up a profile for each game with scenes set up depending what you want such as full screen webcam, full-screen browser with PIP webcam, full-screen browser, full screen game, full screen game with PIP, any of the previous with images, etc... You can add plugins which monitor donations and popup an automated thank you and noise when a donation is made, subscription is added, donation over x is made, and much much more...

It is by far the BEST software for streaming or recording essentially anything on the PC. It is also OPEN SOURCE. Bugs are fixed incredibly fast if they do appear and because it is open-source ... any security issues, if any ever popup would be fixed immediately. Because it is open-source the code is scrutinized by thousands of people so if there ever is a security issue, it'd likely be spotted in the code prior to it ever being used and a fix would be made available.

There are downsides to open-source too... If a security issue is found by one person and they don't report it, they could exploit it for days, weeks or longer depending on how well they hide their actions. This case is unlikely though as all different types monitor the code so the chances of a single person spotting an issue that thousands of others missed is incredibly rare. Most likely, a security issue would be added to the software through a closed-source plugin if at all.


In short, I'm incredibly happy with OBS and can't recommend it enough.
