OBS is one of the free game recording software providers that will allow you to record gameplay in 1080p/60fps.

This software is more complicated than other recorders however it’s free to download and use. Because the software won’t let you log into Twitch you will need to do so first. Get the stream key from them here . Once you have obtained the key you are ready to begin.

  • Select ‘settings’ which is in the bottom right of the page
  • Choose ‘broadcast settings’ on the left
  • Select your streaming service
  • If using Twitch enter your stream key
  • Once you do this you are able to continue starting with opening your game to stream
  • Find the Sources box and right click your mouse
  • Find the add menu and select window capture
  • Click ok
  • Start streaming

If you just want to record and stream later select the record button to capture your gameplay and save into a file of your choosing to record gameplay in 1080/60fps. To see the quality of the recording:

QuickTime is another popular free recording software to record gameplay at 1080p/60fps. To do so the first thing you will need to do once you have downloaded it is to launch your player.
