Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) is a free, Source/Scene based, audio/video mixing (switching) application that facilitates live broadcasts and video recordings from a desktop environment.

But, after becoming more acquainted with its features, anyone can operate a livestream or a recording using OBS.
Follow the steps below to setup and run your livestream.
