Programs to Stream with (or record)
- OBS Arguably the most common streaming software on Twitch. It has many features built in as well as the option to expand with plugins. This is my personal favourite and design most of my Twitch overlays to work perfectly with this.
- X-Split This options is probably the second-runner in terms of popularity. It’s a more ‘premium’ service in that you can pay for it. The benefit of this is customer support is available if you have issues.
