Some people find OBS not working for recording audios recently, so I find an OBS alternative for you. Use a screen recorder to record in game audio. This tool can record not only the audio but also the screen of your computer. This screen recorder supports both Mac and Windows computers. And it saves them in MP4, MOV, AVI, MP3, and other formats.
