Absolutely awful could not get it to work to try (black screen) Cyberlink & Bandicam Screen recorders simplistic with excellent resolution settings compared to this & many other inferior screen recorders.

When I did some testing with software that captured video or screen capture, OBS Studio was one of the first options, and I simply found it torture for something so simple. The interface of the program is very bad, and does not give you the coordinates in a simple way to make a good screenshot. A simple task of making a video capture, I could not do it at all, simply because I could not demarcate the screen for the capture. Well I believe the proposal of the program is good, so here is a tip, so that developers can simplify things, because the program he gains not only for effectiveness, but especially for simplicity, because it helps to make things faster.

Need Easy Option in OBS Studio to simply, play & Crossfade all saved M3U & M3U8 Video playlists?

Tried submitting this feedback on OBS /Github, but always fails to post, no reason given.
Great program with much potential indeed, like all the ongoing improvements. 
Even with latest version update, checked thru FAQs, forum etc, have also downloaded latest VLC Player.
I realize this player is mostly for Gamers etc, but why still cannot get OBS Studio to simply, operate as a normal video player, Like most Music video clips lovers, just want a way, to simply play  all my saved M3U & M3U8 Video playlists from my connected USB Drive on my Windows 10 64bit PC, with a constant crossfade transition effect, after play of each video?) or have video or Audio fade out transitions in between videos on  playlist?
Suprisingly OBS , still cannot open any of my standard saved M3U & M3U8 Video playlists from my connected USB Drive. Any way to do or add this standard
Option and make more easier and user friendly in OBS? (Rated Online 2.7 out of 5 stars)
