Streamlabs OBS offers a fast, reliable and feature-rich streaming app. A true all-in-one utility, this one helps you stream professional shows from various sources, both online and offline.

With Streamlabs OBS, you'll be able to prepare and create professional streams in which you control everything, from the encoder to the bitrate, including subscribers and accounts. You are free to design your own streaming window and add scenes, sources and mixer to it.

The application has numerous customization options and a very clear interface that's rather helpful. Unlike similar other apps, OBS has over 1000 different themes that will add some flair to your streaming video.

Configuring Streamlabs OBS to start broadcasting is not complicated, but you will have to get the stream key for your Twitch account if you're planning on using that site. Then you should choose the type of resolution at which to broadcast and do sound tests.

Whether you create streams as part of your profession or just want to do a show, Streamlabs OBS is the tool for you. It's an excellent utility for broadcasting online with all kinds of resources available online.
