Here's a pretty good YouTube video on it:

I watched a couple tutorials. I am having a problem getting the window of the browser to appear in the OBS viewer. The stream I am trying to record is a box within a internet explorer browser window. Can you please give me some guidance here?

I'm trying to use OBS to record my IE11 window, but I'm just getting a blank screen.
Seems like others have the same issue.
I use Firefox and can record without any issues.
Do you need to use IE, or can you also use Firefox?

Firefox will work fine.
Is there any advantage using OBS over Camtasia?

Firefox doesnt work either

I didn't realize that you had Camtasia.
I thought that you were looking for no-cost solutions.
Camtasia works with all browsers, and is the best!
I would most definitely say go with Camtasia.
When I do live demos at conferences, I always make a Camtasia of my presentation, "just in case".

I am naive to streaming. I thought that maybe there was a way to capture the video file as it came in, rather than do a screen capture. I will stick with Camtasia. Interesting, the audio did not record properly using IE, but worked fine with Chrome.

Thank you!!
