For those of you that requested this tutorial. Hopefully it helped you with the basics of getting started with OBS Studio. I used to record my screen with "iSpring Free Cam", which is good. OBS Studio is a lot better with higher frame rates and more options. Thanks for watching :)

If you guys add the Display Capture and had a black screen and not your monitor or laptop screen try using this:

1. On your desktop find OBS Studios then right click the OBS studios once.
2. Hover to run with graphics processor and select Intergrated graphics.
3. It will run OBS with your desktop screen there!

This also works with SLOBS/Streamlabs OBS.

If this doesn't work try finding something else

Edit: Like Please So this could bee on top :).

I’m glad obs allows you to bind keys because when I’m playing tf2 and some kid get real salty in voice chat I instantly think “this would be a good recording!”

When I click Display Capture, it says "no properties available".

Edit: Had to give it permission through Mac settings. Haha
