A simple streaming program that uses a little too much CPU.

Pros: From setup to broadcast, getting XSplit to do its thing is incredibly simple. It even has hooks built in for just about any streaming service you could want.

Cons: The biggest problem I have with XSplit is that it causes major slowdown in my games. That is a significant problem considering the use of this program. I hope they can one day slim it down a bit, until then I'm content using an alternative source that doesn't provide anywhere near the options XSplit does.

Not good enough to make me switch over honestly.

Pros: I've been using the GeForce experience to stream for some time now, and the massive feature set of XSplit seemed like a good next step. There's so much you can do with scenes and transitions even on a free level that is appealing.

Cons: Ultimately, XSplit caused too much slowdown on my machine over GeForce for me to switch. This is a big issue for me, and people who watch streams, that I think it's unfortunate. You can rightfully say my PC isn't quite up to snuff, but the current program I use performs just fine, I would expect XSplit to be on par? Maybe the additional features would be worth it one day, but for now not quite.

Pros: Once you have the hang of its quirks, the user interface is easy to navigate. We were able to stream to both Facebook Live and YouTube over a broadband connection.

Cons: Titling could be better and it would be nice to set up a source as default for all scenes. A button to start/stop streaming in the main window would be helpful.

Good, but for the price I expected better.

Pros: I was able to setup and record a video of my screen, video of me, and video of my son, all playing a video game.

Cons: Video quality was rough and the software didn't seem intuitive enough. If it was a free program, I'd overlook all of that, but for something on the pricey side, I expected better.

Pros: A very competent piece of streaming software.

Easy to Use
Relatively Cheap
Decent Customer Service Support
Streaming made simple!

Cons: So with so many awesome points, what could be negative about it? Well, although the program is cheap - there is simply better options out there. More specifically OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) - OBS is open-source, meaning FREE, and is so robust and easy to use that it's hard to justify spending money on another broadcasting software. OBS does take a little more tinkering around.

So much more than just twitch streaming.

Pros: is a very simple program to use, gives the option to record, mix and transmit live. very simple compared to other streaming softwere

Cons: what I did not like was in the installation, this softwere requires other things that at the time of installation is a bit tedious, but in general it is great.

Overall: It is an excellent program, with the learning to work streaming to be able to give some workshops live through the internet

Pros: I like the fact that the product was endorsed by a reputable third party. Hence the reason I decided to try it out.

Cons: the program left much to be desired in terms of learning how to use the various windows. setting up scenes and other basic steps. It did connect easilty to facebook, however, that was as much as i had patience for.

Pros: Features are what is making xsplit a very good broadcasting software, you have everything you need to stream games or anything else.

Cons: When I was using xsplit I had a lot of crashes even if my computer is able to handle the game while broadcasting.
