How to Record CSGO Matches Using OBS.
This blog is about how to record Counter-Strike: Global Offensive matches using OBS. Recording CSGO matches can be a difficult task and it can be daunting when you’re just starting out. Hopefully this blog will help you get started and walk you through the process of recording your matches.
The first thing you’ll need to do is install OBS. It’s a free and open-source video recording and live streaming software for Windows, Mac, and Linux. You can download it here.
Once you have it downloaded and installed, you’re all set to go on to the next step of setting up your scenes.
Configuring & Launching OBS
The first thing you need to do is open up OBS. You can either go to the executable file or create a new project in the application.
After OBS loads, it’ll be blank, but that’s okay. To get started, click on ‘+’, then select ‘Video Capture Device’.
You’ll then see this window where you can configure your video capture device.
First, click on ‘Elgato Game Capture HD’ and then select your graphics card from the drop-down menu under ‘Select a capture device’.
Next, select your preferred resolution for your stream. Generally speaking, 240p is a good option if you’re just starting out and want something simple. If you have a higher quality graphics card and stronger internet connection, try 480p or 720p. The higher the resolution of your stream, the better your stream will look when it’s being watched by other people online.
Once you’ve selected your desired resolution for your CSGO recordings, click OK and you should see an input box appear for capturing gameplay footage from CSGO matches.
Setting up the Audio
First things first, you’re going to need to setup your audio. This will allow you to commentate on matches, which is a huge part of CSGO matches. You can do this by going into the ‘Audio’ section in OBS and selecting ‘Microphone’.
You’ll want to set a microphone for your commentary which will help make your videos more accurate and more enjoyable for viewers. This is also important because without audio, viewers won’t be able to hear what’s happening in the match.
Once you have a microphone configured, it’s time to add some audio sources for your recordings. There are three different types of audio sources:
1) Record from Microphone
2) Record from Sound Card
3) Record from Line In
The next step will be configuring these audio sources with settings that work best for you. We recommend setting them up as follows:
1) Mic – Commentator – 128 Kbps MP3 (or AAC) at 44100 Hz
2) Soundcard – Game Audio – 192 Kbps MP3 (or AAC) at 48000 Hz
3) Line In – Commentary – 128 Kbps MP3 (or AAC) at 44100 Hz
Recording CSGO matches using OBS
CSGO is a complex game and when you add in the various rules and regulations that teams need to follow, it can be difficult to stay on top of everything. This is why it’s important for players and teams to record their matches.
This blog will walk you through the process of recording CSGO matches using OBS (Open Broadcaster Software). I’ll start by explaining what OBS is and how it works. Then I’ll show you how to set up your scene before getting into the meat of things: setting up key binds, crosshairs, and more. Finally, I’ll go over some resources to help you as you record CSGO matches with OBS.
Once you’ve set up OBS, recording a CSGO match is as simple as going to the game and hitting the record button. You can also use a hotkey to make this process even quicker.
If you’re looking for a more advanced setup, you can configure OBS to have separate scenes. This lets you have a scene for recording CSGO, and another scene for streaming on Twitch, YouTube, or other streaming services!
