Record and share your desktop with Open Broadcaster Studio 0.12.3

As you may know, Open Broadcaster Studio (OBS) is an open-source, cross-platform application for recording the desktop, ideal for creating video tutorials.

It permits the users to capture the entire desktop or just a window, import video, add pictures and process everything in “scenes”. Also, it allows the users to preview the stream, adjust the video resolution, change the mic volume and reduce the background noise.

The latest version available is Open Broadcaster Studio 0.12.3, which has been recently released, bringing the below changes:

  • Added m3u8 file format for recording
  • Fixed an issue where audio from certain sources could stutter under certain circumstances (bad timestamps from devices)
  • Fixed an issue with windows game capture where Just Cause 3 would not capture properly

Installation instructions:

Open Broadcaster is available via some third party PPA, so installing the software on Ubuntu is not to difficult. It depends on FFmpeg, which is not available via the default repos of Ubuntu 14.04, but this can be bypassed easily.
