I've pushed the 27.0.0 update which comes with:

  • A temporary dependency to vlc-luajit (replaces vlc) to avoid crashes with vlc sources due to a mismatch in lua version (thanks tytan652, see this comment)
  • Wayland and pipewire capture support
  • No longer depends on cef-minimal-3770, but instead current version cef-minimal
  • The dlopen patch that was making obs segfault on my machines doesn't anymore so I added it

Please let me know if there is any issue with this new version.

Thanks benklett (obs-studio-git) and everyone for your contributions!

I don't know if you already know this.

But since obs-studio use luajit (~lua5.1) and VLC is compiled with lua5.2 or later.

The use of OBS VLC sources will make OBS crash because of the difference between lua versions.

I created vlc-luajit to provide a VLC package which not make crash OBS.

It could be a good idea to replace at least vlc optional dependency with vlc-luajit to try to provide a better experience to users.

I don't get why the "Official Repository (Community)" version doesn't have browser + VST sources, yet this one does. It's so confusing and really annoying at the same time, because if you need browser sources, you have to install this version, because the other doesn't have it.

I am suddenly unable to start recording in any other format than 1080p30 with NVENC, and x264 software encoding is missing.

Simply editing the PKGBUILD to use version 26.1.2 fixes it for some reason.

Was on linux510, tried upgrading to 5.12, didn't help. Only nvidia driver available appears to be 460.67 now -- I think I had tried upgrading to it previously and had this issue so I reverted, but it must have automatically updated recently.

Thanks @Fleap, I added the qt5-svg dependency.

@ashpie ah great, thank you. i had removed and reinstalled the package, but i hadn't done a 'clean build.'

working great now. thanks!

@ashpie, I don't know, most of obs-studio packages not made by obs project are built without any submodules which is a issue. It's like they don't know about them.

I already made a feature request for only obs-vst to ArchLinux. Maybe I should make one for all submodules except FTL cause Mixer is no more.

Note: browser, vst and FTL are the only submodules for Linux

@nicodemus, you can fix your issue by performing a clean build of obs-studio-browser.

@tytan652 I pushed an update to add the submodule. Maybe this package should be renamed along with building all official modules?

not working with new x264 update. cannot record nor stream. obs-studio does work, however, but has no browser source.

this package needs an update.
