We’d like to thank Jim, Ben, Joel, Taylor, and the developers who contributed to the OBS project.

Streamlabs Desktop is built on top of the core OBS engine and would not be possible without their years of hard work.

Streamlabs is making a commitment to long-term support of OBS. It is important that companies who incorporate open source software into their commercial products support the ecosystem of volunteers who keep these projects functioning. Together, we will keep building the open source tools that empower our community. 

We believe in the principles of open source software. Streamlabs Desktop and its associated libraries are also open source and serve as the foundation for many other open source projects.

We are grateful to the OBS team for the past few weeks of constructive and open dialogue and the chance to establish a more positive and productive relationship. We listened, learned, and we are committed to this relationship and to our path forward. 

We also want to extend our deepest gratitude to the community for their passion for open source projects. Our goal has and will always be to serve creators and the streaming community.

If you'd like to support Jim and the developers of OBS, please consider donating to the OBS Project on Patreon or Open Collective.
