  1. I like using OBS. I used it for livestreaming on Twitch during a beta test but it was heavy on my computer at that time. Considering streaming again and this time with my bestie, let’s see how it goes.

  2. Thanks for this, nagkaroon na ako ng idea kung pano yung setup ng mga streamers. Wait, is it free? No subscriptions at all?

  3. I am not into livestream gaming but this content is very instructive! If I decide to do liverstream, I’ll get back to this page!

  4. Thanks adam! Something new i have learn today since i wanted to try streaming din and really have no experience about it. Pero im not an avid gamer just wanted to try 😂

  5. Thanks for this tip! I haven’t used any streaming platform, and I think I will try your recommendation.

  6. i will introduce this to my son who’s in the learning process of live streaming.. thank you for sharing and making it simplified

  7. I’m not a techie person and I’m not very familiar with using OBS through FB – I tried designing layouts (for Twitch) and that’s it. Thanks for the step-by-step instructions! This post will make content creators & gamers’ life easy!

  8. This is very helpful to those who are doing live-streaming. How has your experience so far sa live-streaming?dami din nagfafollow live stream sa fb rather than youtube?

  9. What I like about this app is that it’s very flexible to any kind of operating system such as Mac OS, Win, and even Linux. Who wouldn’t want this kind of streaming platform, no matter what type of OS you have.
