I finally had time to investigate the issue. It looks like that as of 11.5, the DesktopVideoHelper.service has to be running for the capture card to work properly.

In case someone is wondering why their decklink device doesn't work (green screen) with the current obs-studio 26.1.0 from the repo, there is some bug that is now fixed in 26.1.1:

For some reason this isn't updated for days in the repo. Building obs from PKGBUILD with adapted version string and md5sums worked for me.

My intensity card died and I replaced it with a Magewell one. So as of this release I cannot test if new version work on actual hardware.

My intensity pro card is dying. I won't replace it with another Blackmagic product. So I won't actively use the package anymore.

I can continue to update this package. However, if newer kernels break the driver I won't be able to test the patches I provide on actual hardware.

So, if anyone is interested in becoming maintainer for this package let me know.

Just tested a little bit and it seems to work well with the update on 5.9.1

I just pushed an update with patches for kernels 5.9.1. As usual, I'm not a kernel module developer so I hope my patches do not introduce bugs. Otherwise I recommend you to use the kernel-lts and let blackmagic that their modules to be patched for newer kernels.

Thank you, ToadKing.

Setting mode to 1080p59.94 and pixel format to 8-bit BGRA on my DeckLink Mini Recorder 4k did it.

Same, new version builds and works on my Intensity Pro 4K. Thanks for the quick fix!

Also for people that are running into an issue with the Intensity Pro 4K in OBS, there's currently a bug where you have to set the mode and pixel format manually for it to work:

Works for me on kernel 5.8.1 with my Blackmagic Intensity Pro.

I just pushed a new revision with fixes for kernel 5.8.1. On top of the Makefile error I had to patch blackmagic_lib.c to reflect changes in kernel 5.8. Modules build and load correctly however I cannot test them on my card right now so let me know if my second fix is not working.

Just to add evidence: I am experiencing exactly the same issue as ToadKing, same kernel 5.8.1-arch1-1, and latest decklink 11.6-1.

It looks like the user nettings over at the blackmagic forums figured out a fix:
