First: We will respond in detail to posts with questions next week. Please accept it's weekend and we can't work around the clock.
The following is my personal statement and not the one of Splitmedialabs Ltd:
One thing to note: Please be fair and do not post only
to highlight other software. You can do that on other websites as much as you want. This is a feedback forum for XSplit and anything but that is not considered on topic and will be subject to moderation. Comparisons are a natural but please make sure benchmarks are done fair and in accordance with recommendations. We are more than happy to engage in communication directly with anyone doing a benchmark to ensure it's done right and optimally. Please run the results by us before you post them to ensure the best test possible.
This paragraph pertains to general forum rules, not this thread: Only posting to bad mouth us is obviously not welcome and will be moderated. We do not moderate constructive criticism (as claimed on the comments of a certain YouTube video). Please recognize this is not a public discussion forum and we decide what goes and what doesn't.
If you're affiliated with another streaming software it would be prudent and a show of good karma to put that in a disclaimer for the reader. In my own opinion it's borderline disrespectful to even post on a competitors home turf while deeply affiliated with a market competitor. It's against what I consider good ethics. I would never post on OBS's forum for any reasons whatsoever. Over the past 2-3 years XSplit has done a lot of good for the streaming communities - looking at OBS's interface and features in particular, I think it's pretty obvious where Jim got a lot of his inspiration from - that must mean we did something right to get here. We embrace competitors' existence and use it to fuel making our software better. There's no need to start a war or flame fest anywhere. The internet is big enough for all of us
To answer rumors on Reddit about proof being deleted, then I do moderate some posts in this thread. There has been two posters who got moderated (one for being too "verbal", who later calmed down and now has a post in this very thread), both were given detailed explanation in private messages. The video Warchamp posted I currently do not recognize as a valid comparison. It lacks basic documentation and actual data but first and foremost the video showcases a scenario wherein XSplit is run under a sub-optimal setup, and so the outcome is not a fair representation (which also happens to be confirmed in the video comments - and no conspiracies please, that was not posted by us). I can't help notice his affiliation with OBS
, so I have no issue moderating it and as I said, he was given fair notice about this. There's no
trying to cover up anything on our end - if we moderate, we have good reason and posters are told asap. However "versus" an open source project, there will always be reasons to hate on us, but flaming or spreading misinformation on our
website will not be allowed.

Please do not quote any of the above without the full context. Link to the post if you want.I am locking this thread over the weekend as we cannot monitor the development. It WILL reopen come Monday when we are able to respond to comments.
