OBS vs. Bandicam
Summary: Choose the right screen recorder for your next project
Frequently asked questions
Is Bandicam good quality?
Bandicam is a quality screen-recording program that allows users to capture a part or all of their screen, webcam footage, and gaming footage. It’s a good option for users who want a paid screen recorder, but it does have some limitations – and updates are not included in the base price of the program.
Why do people use Bandicam instead of OBS?
While OBS is free and includes a number of screen-recording and video-editing features, many users choose Bandicam because it is more user-friendly and includes a few features that OBS Studio lacks. For example, OBS does not include live drawing or annotations during screen-recording sessions.
