    OBS by FAR, it's incredibly intuitive as long as you're using the Studio version

    OBS, Would recommend classic version just out of personal preference.

    You forgot Relive for AMD cards in the poll.

    I use OBS if I'm streaming and relive for the flashback feature for saving local clips.

    I'm not familiar with it, but if it is a live stream broadcasting tool (Example, twitch or youtube) then i can add it for the sake of having it documented. :ph34r:

    I'm guessing the people here who are voting for obs doesn't wanna pay for xsplit. :P

    Relive is basically AMDs version of shadowplay.

    Recording and livestreaming using the hardware x264 encoder on the gpu. Not as flexible as obs, but less of a performance impact.

    There's OBS Studio, which is free. But then there's X-split. That is premium quality there.

    So is basically a geforce experience for AMD GPU users correct? With support for the same features like live stream, i guess i can add it.

    OBS is what I use to stream.OBS does all the things streamers want to do without any hassle.I think its best because:

    1.Its free
    2.Its open source and keeps getting better
    3.It work’s really well
    4.Low resource cost and simple interface

    That's a hell of a bump. :wtf:
    On a serious note, yes, OBS is the best way to go.

    Only a couple of months... Not that bad..

    But yeah, OBS is the best. No doubt about it. Plus, why pay for XSplit? It doesn't do anything that OBS won't.

    OBS or Shadowplay for me. I find Shadowplay works best for streaming games at reasonable quality. (at least for my specs..) But if you aren't doing that, OBS is great!

    OBS is probably the best, but since I sometimes do console stuff, El Gato is super straight forward.

    For some reason, the nvidia shadow play always seem to mess up the video recording by having some playback problem. I never know why though but i wish it didn't.

    Strange. I've never had any issues. Then again I only do short recordings. Streaming doesn't work for me period since my upload is so bad! ^^

    OBS with NVENC for recording works pretty damn well.

    OBS works and open source is always better.
