When you try to import OBS files to Sony Vegas for editing, you will find Sony Vegas always refuse to ingest OBS files, let alone to open OBS in Sony Vegas Pro perfectly for playback and editing. Let’s look at some OBS with Sony Vegas issues:
Q1: “So I recently tried recording some gameplay via the latest version of OBS using file output only, the files playback fine in VLC but when I insert them into Sony Vegas I only get a solid buzzing audio track and no video. I’ve tried changing settings, installing Quicktime, restarting Sony Vegas and my PC and still nothing works.”
Q2: “Seeing as OBS has the ability to record at such high quality I often like to use it as a screen recorder rather than a livestreamer. The only problem is that this does not work with Sony Vegas. To get to the point, when importing the recorded file into Vegas, the program will lock up as it cannot read the file.”
Are you facing the problem likewise? In the following paragraphs I will give the reason why we often failed to import Open Broadcaster Software(OBS) files to Vegas Pro and then offer the easy the solution on how to successfully edit OBS in Sony Vegas Pro 11/12/13.

The file type is not compatible with Sony Vegas. To solve those problems, the quick workaround is to transcode OBS to Sony Vegas natively supported formats (MPG/WMV/MOV are highly recommended). To perform the task effortlessly, you can turn to Brorsoft Video Converter, a professional yet easy-to-use video converter which helps you encode OBS files to Sony Vegas with a few clicks.
