Pros
The best thing that I liked with this software is that it is light on your system. It does not use too much resources giving me the best live streaming experience.
It has also a great HUD where I find it very useful and easy to manage. You can also add plugins and stuff so that you can customize your production even better.
Fantastic user interface and website that guides you through the process of setting up a successful live stream. Offers easy integration with other services.
Cons
Unfortunately, we had problems with the recording function for several weeks in the summer. After this problem was solved by updates, there were no more problems.
Microphone and video cutting out at times, and forces me to restart program to get the problem fixed.
In recent times, they have added many features that are stuck behind paywalls which makes it unappealing.

Anyone Can LiveStream With StreamLabs

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, we have used, and continue to use Streamlabs OBS fo streaming our band concerts. We found it very easy to integrate multiple cameras and set up ReStream.io feeds.

Pros

What I enjoyed most about this software was how comprehensive the functionality is! It's got a lot of features that are honestly astonishing to find in free software. The Prime version adds even more to it.

Cons

What I liked least about Streamlabs OBS was being able to find the functions I needed. I struggled locating things in the interface because I didn't "get" the iconography. Once I figured out where all the tools were hiding and learned the lingo, I was good to go.

The OBS for the not so "technical" ones

Reviewed 2 years ago

The overall experience can be summarized in that if you want to live stream content for any platform. You want to save the technical steps and want to drag and drop valuable widgets for your streams, you should choose Streamlabs, because of the level of simplicity of being able to stream and how easy it is to interact with your audience with this software. Happy streaming!

Pros

Streamlabs is the platform that I would recommend to anyone to stream content to one or several platforms, due to its versatility and how easy it is to stream live and let the platform adjust all the technical aspects with just one button. The software interface is very user-friendly, as it has this section to add widgets, where you can put either the chat, objectives, what game you are streaming, goals for the channel, etc. It's an OBS for non-techies.

Cons

Now, it is true that I personally prefer OBS more, because of the customization you can create for your streams. I say this because, in Streamlabs, you can achieve customization for the stream, but not as "technical" so to speak, as in OBS. Another thing, let's see Streamlabs as if it were google chrome, we have this incredible browser that does everything in a hyper-fast way, but you sacrifice the resources of your computer. The same thing happens with Streamlabs, it uses too much CPU which can overload your computer tasks and not achieve an efficient stream. So, if you have a reasonably powerful computer, you won't have that much of a problem in this section.

Made Stream Unwatchable, App Is Buggy Mess

Reviewed 2 years ago

Streamlabs ruined my stream for the duration of time that I used it. It is a bloated ungodly program that takes avantage of the open source code for OBS and uses it to create an unwieldly product that looks pretty at first glance but which does a worse job than vanilla OBS itself. With vanilla OBS, my stream is smooth. With Streamlabs, it is laggy and absolutely unwatchable, to the point where I would...

Pros

it has all of the fun toys and alertboxes and bots that Streamelements would have

Cons

29% dropped frames consistently for months. Unwatchable App updates would cause things like the Start Recording button to stop working Too bloated, way too CPU heavy Customer support is trash

I love streamlabs!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall, I love Streamlabs as my tool for streaming on Twitch. It has everything I want it to have and is likely going to get the things I want it to have overtime going by their own updates. Highly recommended for new and old streamers.

Pros

I've been using Streamlabs for the majority of my gaming hobby. Though I did and still do use OBS for non-gaming streaming, Streamlabs just had a nicer look, offered more, and felt, overall, more put together. The settings also feel a lot more clean and easier to find.

Cons

It doesn't, yet, offer recording the game and camera separately, requiring them to be connected in the recording, which isn't always fun for editing.
