Please add pipewire-media-session as an optional dependency. It is required for PipeWire capture to work in OBS Studio.

pipewire screen capture doesn't work for me. As suggested by @Koffiepoeder I've enabled PIPEWIRE support in the PKGBUILD. I created an issue at

OBS upstream includes support for globally installed ftl-sdk. I also packaged that and created an obs-studio-ftl package which is obs-studio stable with ftl-sdk support.

As @HurricanePootis mentioned, native pipewire recording was added to obs since version 27.0 (see It seems to me however that this is not enabled by default. To enable this functionality you can add -DENABLE_PIPEWIRE=ON to the build() step in the PKGBUILD (and run obs in wayland mode, see bottom of my post). For me this resolved the earlier requirement for obs-xdg-portal-git on my wayland/pipewire machine for screen recording (a package which doesn't compile for this version anyway, i.e. see my issue @

build() {
  cd $pkgname

  mkdir -p build; cd build

  cmake \
    -DCEF_ROOT_DIR="/opt/cef" \
    -DENABLE_PIPEWIRE=ON .. # <--------- add before '..'


After installing this way, to get obs to run in native wayland mode, you also need to install qt5-wayland and finally run obs with the QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland variable set.

@wuestengecko ah, ok.. i forgot i had a custom ffmpeg.. thank you

wuestengecko commented on 2021-04-07 23:28

@Psilovybin All of these have received soname bumps. You either have a partially upgraded system or need to recompile your custom ffmpeg package (which is what provides

pipewire is now needed as a dependency, or the package will fail to compile

wuestengecko commented on 2021-04-01 13:13

I can confirm what @HurricanePootis speculated about, pipewire is in fact a make dependency now. Not having it installed will cause failure during cmake.

Hey, OBS just pushed a bunch of Wayland patches to the master branch as of 3/31/2021, which now allows OBS to record the entire screen and sections of it using pipewire. In addition to OBS being able to use pipewire as a dependency, it also requires xdg-desktop-portal for OBS to actually use pipewire.

Basically, I am suggesting that you add pipewire and xdg-desktop-portal as optional dependencies for Wayland support.

Also, thinking about it more, OBS probably needs to build against pipewire too, I guess. Not too sure on that, but OBS is obviously now linked against pipewire, so I think there is a pretty high chance that pipewire is also a make dependency.

Edit: Just ldd all of the libraries in /usr/lib/obs-plugins/, and one of them is built against pipewire. I am 99% sure this means that OBS needs to build against pipewire now.
