The short story is you get better performance from OBS but your going to have to take the time to lookup how to videos (or watch my awesome tutorial for it below) to learn how to do what you want to do with it because it is not very intuitive on how to use it when you first open it up.

That’s where XSplit does well. It is extremely beginner friendly and easy to get setup and start streaming quickly. XSplit Paid version can stream to multiple services at once so that is definitely a nice feature if you take your streaming seriously and you want to be on as many platforms as possible. As well as a few other features.
