Here is a very basic explanation of how I make videos. It doesn't explain how to setup OBS, only how I use OBS once it's setup and how I make Angband full screen.

To zoom in on your screen on a mac you hold down the control key and then use your fingers on the touchpad to zoom in and out, while holding down control.

I just lost a character at full hit points (about 135) from an ancient green dragon's breath. It's my fault for not treating it more carefully, since I didn't have poison resistance.

This tutorial for Windows systems seems very good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTk99mHDX_I#t=24s

OBS is available for Windows too. It's even easier to set up, since you don't need extra shenanigans to capture game audio like you do in OSX.

Maybe this is a dumb question, but how do I make the early game more fun? I can reliably get a character, or at least a human mage, to about experience level 20, and then it gets interesting. Eventually, usually around 30, I die. Fair enough. I still have a lot to learn about the midgame. But then I have to more or less replay those first few hours. The early game is more interesting if I dive faster, but that of course also makes it more deadly, and then sometimes I get characters killed at like level 10 or 15. It seems to be the reverse situation from NetHack, where the early game is downright unfair, but once you get the Castle's wand of wishing, which is at the midpoint of the game, you're home free (and Gehennom is so easy it's boring; real danger only reappears once you have the Amulet, or if you're unlucky enough to meet Demogorgon). Maybe I just need a break from roguelikes.

Fun broadly comes from two things in Angband: being scared, and finding cool loot. Being scared is easy: just go past your comfort zone. Finding cool loot doesn't happen much in the early game (you may find useful loot, but it's probably not going to make you go "Wow!"), but does happen more often as you go deeper. In both cases the solution is the same: dive.

You don't have to crash dive (taking every down staircase you see), but there's very little reason to hang around killing weak enemies just for the experience. Strong enemies are more interesting to fight, and give both better experience and better loot, so go seek out some challenges.

Well said. At any rate, my latest @ found some gloves of free action on DL1, so that's auspicious. He's now at CL 26, DL 32.
