I got so many problems with OBS on Windows, it's super frustrating to set up and use. I got vMix Basic HD for $60 (one-time fee) and now it's fine.

Not 495 dollars now - 695 dollars. Could guess at the start Wirecast was the choice - looks like nothing more than a wirecast promo.

Xplit premium you can also stream to more than 2 places just like wirecast...
Sorry castr.io
Awesome! Also check out Castro.io

Xsplit is free too it just has an ad when you open it for the premium version ...

You said wirecast is multiplatform. But it only has windows and mac support. Not a huge deal, but it's kinda misleading. Multiplatform means multiplatform. And because wirecast does not have Linux support, you cannot call it multiplatform.
BlackWorm (3 months ago)
I know, I mean crossplatform. Sorry
multi meaning more than one.. Thanks for the feedback.. but can be "as few as two" operating systems - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-platform_software

So on xsplit can't go live from Facebook and YouTube at the same time?
Kio ÐÎÊKÎÑ (16 days ago)
U can always do it by simply clicking the other outputs. U don’t have to use switchboard or Castro. Just click the other outputs u wanna stream with and your set
with any of them you can now using platforms like castr.io or switchboard.live

GameCast is just $29 and made by the same people who make WireCast.

WireCast has better green screen capture the nobs for me using the same equipment and camera to compare.

I am trying to use XSplit but i'm having 1 problem. I can't get my facecam in front of my game I will stream. Anyone, tips?
Can't remember exactly where this is with xsplit specifically but you change the order of the 'layers' so that the camera is above your screen capture layer
Brendan Stubbs (4 months ago)
you were forgetting one thing obs is open source and completely free software what makes it better than all of the closed source Solutions
Free and Open Source doesn't always mean better.. but obs is definitely a great program
Talisman Skulls (4 months ago)
Lol not paying $500 for anything just to record or stream a video feed. I'll put up with OBS because $500+ is bs on something this simple. The only issue is getting the audio to record in windows 10 so people can actually hear you.
Haha you do you! :)

My entire life got better when I switched from OBS to MimoLive, I definitely recommend checking it out. OBS is fun to play around with- but shouldn't be used for anything mission critical

i dont like OBS because it records at terrible frame rates especially for fast paced games.
BigZ (7 months ago)
then change your settings, or if you can't, then the fact is that your machine is low-end, and the game propably is too.
Lancakyr (8 months ago)
I installed Wirecast to try it out. You told us its easier to use and more intuitive than OBS. Since a hour Im trying to setup the audio and Im still not done. First time I installed OBS it took me about 20 minutes to setup everything and start streaming. Because of its price you will find only tutorials made by very old persons. After watching 5 minutes I fell asleep.

Error 404: Typed XSplit instead of OBS 7:06
Spotlightsrule (9 months ago)
OBS is definitely my favorite. Not only because of the price tag, but because of the features and how customizable it is. Plus for the more advanced users, it is open source, so it can easily be forked and customized to a person’s needs. Hands down OBS takes my top spot
Betsy Kile (9 months ago)
I am having a huge problem with OBS! I'm helping my son start a gaming channel and everything is connected properly but the games just sit at a standstill. I'm ready to try another software, perhaps Xsplit

Michael Manning (9 months ago)
Obs 4k was lagging and delaying on a 1080 and a i7. Messed with all settings in tutorial setups and no luck. Xsplit worked with the Brio right off the bat. No lag. No fucking with the ms audio delay. I'll pay 5 a month to not get pissed.

how to use the obs
Knight 11692 (10 months ago)
Of course he would be trying to sell us on the one that cost the most that's why we had to wait until the end. I think I'm going to try xsplit and see how that goes I'm not sure what's going on with the new OBS.
Callie Cummings (10 months ago)
I love ecamm! Do you know if you can use ecamm and Live Leap together? Or are they competing softwares?
We love Ecamm too! Yes you can definitely use the two together 👍
I use OBS. At first, it seems that it is hard to set up. But I found some articles how to do it even for specific cases. For example, how to set up OBS for CS:GO for Twitch on the middle end PC. After setting up, just one click to start a stream. Benefits are that OBS doesn't use much hardware resources and you can play and stream with almost no losses of fps. That's why I like it. But anyway, the video is great. Thanks!

So I’ve been using Xsplit Gamecaster for several months now and gotta say it’s perfect for new streamers, anyone who wants to get started that’s the way to get going especially if you are one to be put off by all the customization the other streaming programs come with.

Wirecast is a waste of money if you`re not actually "using" all the features. Who does that? Guys, please ignore this ad and this guy, and stick with OBS. Its as with kodi and linux, some of the best open source free softwares out there.

xsplit is working really well for me so far and im not even using the paid version im using the free version streaming in 720p at 30fps and so far so good tho it could be better of course but for just starting out the free version is def getting the job done. i just came here looking for obs vs xsplit reviews to see if im missing out on a better platform and instead im basically being told to buy wirecast for 500bucks wtf this review is laughable at best and at worst its an ad for wirecast :(

This video was really informative. I personally live stream every weekend and I should experiment with the other two softwares. I use OBS. Great video, Mr. Brown.
@Justin Brown, what about Sling Studio? I am torn between the two to start my live real estate podcast via Facebook/Youtube, via Canon 60d with two podcasters for interviews.
AussieTV (1 year ago)
Wirecast is rubbish. OBS gives better video and Xsplit is way better for the price. Wirecast isn't worth $500. And btw your video looks an advertorial on a commercial TV station. Maybe that's what you are aiming for?
The Judge (1 year ago)
what about Gameshow?

Hello Justin. I really enjoy your videos and have learned a lot from them. I have a question for you . . . How do you make the graphics for your videos? Thank you for making such great quality videos!

Yea this feels like an ad... you really downplayed Xsplit. Xsplit also has a free version that does everything OBS does as well as basically the same plugin library as OBS.

Is there a way to connect Wirecast Pro on a stream setup website like Streamjar or Streamlab? And how can I authenticate on a RTMP server? Because it says I have to do that in order to stream on Mixer.
ERiQ TENDO (1 year ago)
You can purchase XSPLIT software at $199.99 for the LIFETIME ownership. XSPLIT CAN BROADCAST OUT TO MULITPLE STREAM at the same time. Mixer, YouTube, Facebook, Twitch.tv. etc.

You can multiple output with xsplit as well we stream to 3 facebook pages and 1 youtube channel all at the same time and even enables you to use ur graphics card to encode the streams. This is used because this way your processor isn't affected

There's some exciting updates happening to all these programs at the moment.. Ecamm Live on Mac is another solid option now too.

Justin Brown - Primal Video Thank you.
Depends on your computer setup, if you have a decent GPU then wirecast will utilize that much more.
