Made a complete guide for using OBS on Linux (I'm on #Manjaro). This includes everything from installation, to settings, and to scene setup. Hope it helps people get going with their own videos.
Install Guides for all Linux
sudo pacman -S obs-studio
Auto-Configuration Wizard to get stream bitrate
Upload Bitrate * 70% or 80%.
Convert Mbps to Kbps by multiplaying by 1000
0.19 Mbps Upload * 75% = 0.1425 Mbps
* 1000 = 142.4 Kbps Stream Bitrate (Put 142.4 in - FYI This is way too low for streaming)
=== Settings Menu ===
Settings -> Video -> Output Scaled Resolution... Set Equal to Base (1920 x 1080 = 1920 x 1080)
Common FPS Values -> 30 unless you need it for gaming
Hotkeys - Start / Stop Recording CTRL + ALT + R for both
Output Mode -> Advanced
Make Bitrate equal to the one we figured out earlier
