This project is interesting ...
Open Broadcaster Software is free and open source software for the purposes of streaming live media content to the internet or to video files.
Originally I just made it for myself because I thought "why should I pay a subscription for software I could probably write myself?"
..And so, I did. And it evolved into somewhat of a monster of a project. And that's pretty much the end of the story.
I hope people can make use of this application, or otherwise learn something from it. I'm having a ton of fun writing this software and am learning much in the process. Overall it's been an excellent experience.
