Thank you for the informations

Put sndio as make dependency and optional dependency and everything would be fine.

This error only means that the sndio part of OBS will not be loaded, this is not an issue.

Misconfigured dependency

I don't think sndio has to be a make dependency but a normal dependency.

This error is caught upon loading obs from the command line

error: os_dlopen(/usr//lib/obs-plugins/>/usr//lib/obs-plugins/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

warning: Module '/usr//lib/obs-plugins/' not loaded

Side-note about an mbedtls package update

Also If by chance some peoples are having a crash upon clicking 'Start Streaming', make sure to recompile obs-studio-browser entirely, a newer community/mbedtls package has been released yesterday 14 july 2021 and requires you to recompile obs.

Updating to this version of OBS you will no longer be able to click and drag sources into groups, because the devs explicitly disabled it due to a rare bug that very few users may encounter that deletes sources when moved into groups. But instead of disabling it outright, should of had the option to toggle it on or off.

Crash upon clicking 'Start Streaming'
error: Output ID 'rtmp_output' not found
error: Failed to create output 'adv_stream'!
warning: Output 'adv_stream': Tried to set a delay value on a non-encoded output
warning: Stream output type 'rtmp_output' failed to start!
Relevant log
error: os_dlopen(/usr//lib/obs-plugins/>/usr//lib/obs-plugins/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

warning: Module '/usr//lib/obs-plugins/' not loaded

You should add the package community/mbedtls as depends=

Side note

No reasons to remove it, see official package :

Also missing libxcomposite, pipewire

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.
