⚡️ A Better OBS

Beautifully designed broadcast software for normal people.

For those who don't know, OBS stands for Open Broadcaster Software. It's basically the studio software that allows you to create engaging live streams, complete with graphical overlays, multi-camera feeds, transition effects and more.

A lot of organizations use it these days to create live streams for things like Church services, graduations, conferences etc. But let's be honest, not every organization has someone dedicated to this sort of thing. And even if they do, it can be complicated for one person to run it all themselves. The software is ridiculously complicated and overwhelming for someone who's just getting started. Also, it's ugly.

So what would it look like to create a simple, beautiful OBS competitor?

  • Intuitive default settings that get you most of the way there out of the box.
  • Educational tool tips throughout the software that introduce you to new features as needed.
  • A beautiful and simple interface.
  • Keyboard shortcuts.
  • A command-line tool for quick access to actions (with keyboard shortcut prompts tied to each action so you can learn the shortcuts as you run a command).
  • Beautifully designed graphical templates and non-cheesy transition effects.
