As you would possibly know, Streamlabs is a forked model of OBS Studio. This essentially method that Streamlabs uses (component of) the code that makes OBS Studio work. However, this doesn’t routinely imply that it’s higher (or worse) than OBS. They each have their benefits and disadvantages!

Immediately Streamlabs offers you a setup that is prepared to go with nearly no effort of adjustments involved. Just log in with your Twitch, YouTube or Facebook account and with a few sources added you’re ready to go! If you want an easy stress free ride into streaming, Streamlabs is for you but prepared to have several identical looking streaming channels!

OBS Studio

OBS Studio appears older and a bit more clunky as compared to Streamlabs. If you update to OBS Studio 28 its user interface is significant better. OBS Studio’s advantages are you’re able to plugins to customize your stream and the studio software itself to your liking.

OBS Studio also uses less of your PC’s resources, which additionally makes OBS Studio an awesome answer if you’re noticing overall performance problems with Streamlabs.


For us, OBS Studio allows to apply lots of unique plugins into our streams. Once your past your early days of streaming we highly recommend do it early, we truly propose switching to OBS Studio.
