Open Broadcaster

I have a black screen and can’t see my stream

Firstly, make sure you have created a scene and added a source to
actually be seen. After that, you’ll need to turn on ‘Preview Stream’ or
be streaming in order to see your stream

Why can’t I move any sources that I added?

You need to be previewing your stream, or actually streaming and
click ‘Edit Scene’ to move things around. You can also hold Ctrl while
moving a source to prevent it from snapping to the screen edges and
Shift while resizing to ignore the aspect ratio.

 One of my actual sources is black and not showing up

Are you trying to stream a fullscreen game? You’ll need to hook
into it using the 'Game Capture' source in OBS or using a program like
Dxtory. As well, OpenGL games like Minecraft have issues with Window
Capture and you’ll need to use Monitor Capture to show them.

If desktop capture is showing up as black, it indicates that you either need to update windows or update directx.

Will this ever work on Windows XP? What about Mac and Linux?

Windows XP unfortunately lacks DirectX 10 features and the audio
subsystem present in Vista and up that OBS makes use of, and as such,
will never be supported. Mac and Linux are planned in the future once
OBS has reached a more finalised state feature wise.

I get D3DX10_43.dll missing error, or a 80004005 error

Make sure you have the latest version of DirectX and that your video card drivers are up to date.

Why is my capture card showing up as a red box on my stream

Your capture device may still be unsupported -- please visit the Problems and Bugs forum and read the thread regarding red output from devices

I have flickering with Game Capture on an Optimus laptop

You need to force OBS to run on the Nvidia GPU, otherwise it won't work correctly.

What settings should I use?
