Calling up Justice is a big proponent of open source software and OBS specifically. Open Broadcasting Software (OBS) is a free and open-source software for video recording and live streaming. It is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux operating systems. OBS allows users to capture video and audio from various sources, including webcam, desktop screen, game screen, and external devices such as microphone and camera. The captured content can then be mixed, edited, and streamed live to platforms such as YouTube, Twitch, Facebook Live, and more. Below we will share a simple definition of the software and give you access to the free training we provided.
One of the key features of OBS is its flexibility. Users can create multiple scenes, each containing different sources, and easily switch between them during a live stream or recording. This allows creators to easily display different camera angles, display on-screen graphics, or show a combination of video feeds.
Another great feature of OBS is its ability to add various filters and effects to the video and audio sources. Users can adjust the color and brightness of the video, add noise reduction to the audio, and even use third-party plug-ins to add more advanced effects. OBS also includes robust streaming features such as support for multiple streaming services, the ability to record to a local file while streaming, and the ability to add custom overlays, and metadata.
For creators, OBS is a great tool because it offers a lot of functionality while being easy to use and it’s free. It can be used to create and stream high-quality content without the need for expensive equipment or software. It also offers a wide range of customization options, allowing creators to tailor their streams and recordings to their specific needs. For example, a youtuber can use OBS to create thumbnails and overlays, record gameplay and commentary, and stream it all live on their channel.
OBS also has a large and active community that provides support, tutorials, and resources for users of all levels. This makes it easy to find help when needed, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced user. OBS is a powerful and versatile tool that can help creators produce high-quality video and audio content, without breaking the bank. With its wide range of features, ease of use and flexibility, OBS can help creators achieve professional-quality results and make their mark on the online content creation space. The Calling Up Justice practice appreciates the software for practical and politically reasons. It’s been a backbone of much of our programming.
