OBS Studio has managed to pull in YouTube as a new sponsor

By - | Views: 18,128

Seems that Blender and Godot Engine aren't the only open source projects pulling in wide support, as OBS Studio has announced a new funding partner.

Announced yesterday, December 7, the blog post mentions that YouTube are now their newest Premier Sponsor which is the highest possible level to support OBS Studio. So they now join Twitch and Facebook by giving at least $50,000 in funding over a year. It's not clear how much because the level below Premier at Diamond as the $50K minimum on it so it seems they're doing quite well.

We're excited to announce that YouTube has become a premier sponsor of the OBS Project! Since the earliest days of the program, a large number of our users have used OBS to create video content specifically for YouTube, whether live-streamed or recorded for post-production. We're incredibly humbled to have YouTube, the largest content creation platform on the internet, as one of our sponsors.

YouTube is a pillar of creativity in the internet community, serving as a nexus for people to share all kinds of content, including live performances, live streams of video game content, educational resources, product reviews, comedy sketches, and much more. It pioneered a new generation of video content across TV, computer and mobile devices, while also providing a platform that allows anyone to create and grow a career out of video content creation.

The OBS Project team is proud to have a role in serving content creators on YouTube with free and open source tools, and are incredibly grateful to YouTube for supporting us as we continue to meet those needs!

OBS Studio

Nice to see too, since OBS Studio has become absolutely essential for all types of video content creators (us included). We use it for all our livestreaming on our Twitch and a little on our YouTube too. It makes video creation pretty darn simple, allowing you to record audio and video together with all sorts of overlays and effects. Since it's free and open source, anyone can work with it and learn from it too.
