Streaming for Tabletop

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on streaming my Extra Life marathon this year.  One question though. It seems like OBS and Xsplit are the top 2 broadcasting software.  Which one is most suited to broadcasting tabletop gaming?  I'm more of a board gamer and I usually have 6-12 people playing at my house throughout the day. Thanks!

I've only ever used OBS. Though it depends on what you really want from your stream. I have 2 cameras, one for a wide group and one on the board. I've heard from others that OBS doesn't like much more than that, but I haven't actually done the test. Try OBS first (as it's free) then make the switch if needed.

Either one will work, really.  I find xsplit to be more intuitive for my uses, so that's what I use.  The big thing for you is making sure you have enough cameras to cover the important spots.  One looking down from above is a good idea, as well as cameras trained at the people playing, even if it's a wide group shot.  This can be set up relatively easily, and even doing it in two or three different scenes will help change up what the viewers see.
