In this article, we are going to show you how to find your recordings in OBS Studio and how to change where they are saved. Let’s jump in.

Where Are My OBS Studio Recordings Saved?

When you first install OBS Studio on your computer you will be asked to select a storage location for your recordings. If you are anything like me you probably just clicked “Next” without even reading what you were doing.

Find OBS Studio Recordings Using The Following Steps:

  1. Open OBS Studio on your computer
  2. Click on Settings in the bottom right-hand corner
  3. Click on the output tab on the left-hand side and navigate to the recording section
  1. In the recording section scroll down to “Recording Path”. Here you will see the folder your recordings are being saved to.
  2. To view all of your recordings copy the Recording path link and open file explorer. Paste the link into the top bar in file explorer and hit enter.
  1. You will now be in the folder that contains any recordings you have previously made

You have now successfully found your OBS Studio recordings and can drag your footage into your editing software or upload it directly online.
