The team behind OBS Studio announced that AMD have become a Diamond Sponsor of the OBS Project, helping fund future development. Great to see, as OBS Studio is easily one of the most popular free and open source applications around and something I use near-daily.
It was announced on Twitter with a short message just confirming it, with no other details.
What it means is that AMD are now funding OBS with at least $50,000 per year, joining NVIDIA and StreamElements at the same level. OBS also has many additional sponsors including YouTube, Logitech, Twitch, Facebook and others giving over plenty of funding and other help to the project.
This really is amazing to see. The last few years have seen so many positive stories like this for free and open source projects. Blender is another that keeps pulling in more funding, Godot Engine just launched their own Foundation and even the Kdenlive video editor funding campaign I mentioned previously has reached over the original goal.
Good times for FOSS projects.
