Cross-platform screen-casting for free with OBS

Open Broadcaster Software is the boss of screencasting; feature-packed, no ads, cross-platform and totally free! Specialized computer video recording software like the commercial FRAPS used to be the only feasible way to screencast games. Meanwhile most other screen-recording apps decorated your screen with ads and often couldn’t record games (DirectX or OpenGL).

OBS solves all our screen casting woes with commercial strength features wrapped up in a super-simple interface that’s available across Windows, Mac and Linux. No need to learn a different software for each, and it costs nothing at all (feel free to donate and support the devs though)!
