Portable OBS Studio 22.0 (x64)
OBS Studio is an application designed for gamers, artists, developers or amateur users who enjoy creating tutorials and streams that they share over the Internet. Create high quality recording with OpenGL or Direct3D on your desktop and stream them on the Internet via this intuitive software solution. Works with multiple streaming services, including Twitch The setup is quick and uneventful, so it is unlikely that you can encounter any issues at this stage. Upon launch, you are welcomed by a minimalistic, yet clean and intuitive interface that displays all available features and functions.
You should know that the program allows you to connect to the major streaming services, such as Twitch, YouTube or DailyMotion, for instance. Alternatively, you can add your custom streaming service or save the recordings on your local drives in high-quality formats (MOV, FLV, MKV, MP4, TS and M3u8).
As you would expect, the application permits you to configure the stream, so that you can be sure that the audience watching your live recording gets quality. Therefore, you can change the resolution, adjust the FPS, alter the delay and set the maximum bitrate, so that they are suitable for a wider range of devices.
Enables you to add multimedia files into the stream easily
Even though the primary goal of the initial releases was to make the application work on multiple platforms, there are some notable differences between this too and Open Broadcaster Software.
For starters, the program comes with a more dynamic API that enables developers to create their own plugins, so that they can have a more efficient control over the streaming experience. In addition, the Studio version allows you to include more type of files into the streaming, such as Audio Input and Output Capture, Display Captures, Images and Browser, for instance.
Perhaps the most noteworthy difference is the Studio mode that enables you to compare scenes and customize transitions with just a few clicks. It is worth mentioning that both applications allow you to record videos from various sources and integrate text, media, desktop recording, game capture or webcam streams into the content.
A tool that allows you to better manage the streaming process
Irrespective of whether you are creating a tutorial to upload for your gamers friends or you want to exhibit a highlight feature of a product that you want to launch in the near future, OBS Studio enables you to make live recordings that you stream or save locally effortlessly.
High performance real time video/audio capturing and mixing, with unlimited scenes you can switch between seamlessly via custom transitions.
Filters for video sources such as image masking, color correction, chroma/color keying, and more.
Intuitive audio mixer with filter functionality such as noise gate, noise suppression, and gain.
Powerful and easy to use configuration options. Add new Sources, duplicate existing ones, and adjust their properties effortlessly.
Improved and streamlined Settings panel for quickly configuring your broadcasts and recordings.
Both light and dark themes available to fit your preference
Major improvements to the browser source:
Added hardware acceleration to the browser source on Windows for greatly improved performance, reduced resources, and allowing advanced rendering functionality such as WebGL. This reduces CPU usage, reduces RAM usage, and even reduces GPU usage. This option is enabled by default; it can be disabled in the advanced section of settings if needed if there are any unexpected issues.
Refactored the entire plugin and pruned approximately 13,000 lines of code (very satisfying for me in particular)
The browser source now has accurate frame synchronization on Windows
Fixed all memory leaks of the browser source
Added the ability to use web browsers as widgets (which isn’t currently exposed much, but will allow a lot more custom functionality later)
Added source grouping, allowing the ability to group multiple sources together as a single transformable group:
To add a group, you can either select a few sources and then right-click and choose “Group Selected Items”, or you can create an empty group in the Add menu
You can seamlessly drag and drop items in and out of groups
You can ungroup a group without affecting the group in other scenes by right-clicking the group and choosing “Ungroup”
Groups show their list of sources as a sub-list within the main scene list, which can be collapsed and hidden if desired
Groups can be referenced (shared) between multiple scenes like any other source
Groups can have their own effect filters applied to them
Added the ability to set a custom background color to items within the source list to color-code them for improved organization:
To set the item’s background color, right-click the source item within the source list, and go to “Set Color”
You can use a preset selection of colors within the menu, you can choose a custom color, or you can reset it to default
Added a “Vertical Layout” option to the mixer’s right-click context menu to make the mixer display vertically rather than horizontally (#1257)
The multiview can now be configured to show up to 24 scenes at once in general settings if desired (#1260)
Added an option to audio settings to allow the user to change the audio meter type: “Sample Peak” and “True Peak” (#1189)
Added secure streaming (RTMPS) support for services that support it, such as Facebook (#1360)
It is now possible to use more than one Intel QSV encoder at once (#1341)
It is now possible to use alt-cropping even on sources that are set to a bounding box transform. This fixes the issue where, for example, alt-cropping would not work after you pressed Ctrl-F on a source. Note that in that case, the rectangle’s size will not change, but the contents will realign to the rectangle. (01ac60c)
Windowed projectors are now saved and loaded on shutdown/startup (#1195)
Audio sources within the mixer now always displayed alphabetically (#1242)
Significantly reduced GPU usage when the program is idle (I.E. when the program is not streaming or recording) (45b5291)
Added a confirmation dialog when the user has not added video sources to any scenes, warning them that they are about to stream a blank screen. This ensures that new users do not inadvertently stream without at least first adding some sources. (310c98e)
The program will now default to the NVIDIA GPU when on laptops that have both NVIDIA and Intel integrated adapters. This can still be overridden in the NVIDIA control panel if desired
