Open Broadcaster Software is Now Available for Mac-Based PCs

By   /   Jul 16, 2014

Over the recent years, broadcasting gameplay has become an integral part of the gaming culture with a vast majority of gamers earning a livelihood using popular streaming sites, such as Twitch.tv. However, Mac-based users have always faced a lack of technical support in this department.

Open Broadcaster Software is easily one of the most popular softwares to broadcast gameplay, directly from your PC. This widely-used software has proven to put less load on your machine, is an open-source program, and you can use it without spending a dime. The only catch is its lack of support for Operating Systems, other than Microsoft Windows. Well, at least, until now.

Yesterday, the company announced ‘OBS MultiPlatform‘ on GitHub for Windows, Mac, and Linux-based PCs. As of now, the release is only available for Mac, but Windows and Linux variants are listed under ‘Coming Soon’ on the official site.

Since OBS MultiPlatform is in early stages of its development, expect a plethora of bugs and crashes, as reported on the OBS Forums. Moreover, the software currently doesn’t capture audio directly from the desktop and users must rely on other softwares, in case they want audio embedded in their streams.
