  1. Great tutorial. I set OBS up on Windows 10. After a period of time, the left/right audio channels were not in synch causing an echo. Initially it seemed to be because of using a hotkey to start recordings, but nothing seemed to fix it. The only solution seemed to be close the program down and then reopen it. Strange

  2. perhaps someone can help me? I followed all the directions in this vid and for some reason the Picture in the videos I record is Freezing and, although the audio continues to run normally, the picture remains frozen….?

  3. Dude. What a great tutorial video. You answered every beginner question that I have had and did so in a way that I could easily follow along with. You were the 4th or 5th video I tried, and the last video I needed to get started. Thanks for your time man!
