What Software Does PewDiePie Use To Record His Videos?
PewDiePie has stated in several of his videos that he uses OBS to record his screen in his gaming videos. OBS is a very popular free, open source software used by most large gaming YouTubers for both recording and streaming.
It’s very easy to configure, allows you to record audio and stream directly to platforms like Twitch and YouTube. We strongly recommend it, especially because it can save you a great deal of money you would otherwise spend on a capture card.
Who Are PewdiePie’s Video Editors?
Of course you should be aware that, like most high-profile YouTubers, PewDiePie does not edit all of his own videos. The time he puts towards creating is far too valuable, and hiring a skilled editor gives him way more time to perform. We did some research and found that he currently has two editors working hard to cut together his daily content.
PewdiePie often gives shout outs to these two behind-the-scenes geniuses, and they will often leave their own impression on the edits in the form of “editor jokes”.
Brad Woto has worked as one of PewDiePie’s editors for several years, and runs his own personal channel World Of The Orange (Although as of today it has been over a year since he has uploaded anything).
If you’re interested in knowing more about Brad Woto, here is a video from his channel, aptly titled “Who Am I?”
Sive Morten, (Real Name: Muhammed Osman), has a much whackier style of editing that can be seen on his YouTube channel. He uploads more regularly and is actually more popular on his Twitter than his YouTube. He is responsible for the more crazy, involved edits you may see on PewDiePie’s channel.
