If the obs preview is transparent (showing the desktop / whatever window is behind it), obs can either be run on XWayland with QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb or with proper Wayland support which is being worked on here https://github.com/obsproject/obs-studio/pull/2484

The screencopy backend works with default obs, however for dmabuf OBS needs EGL support. The linked PR above for Wayland support also makes EGL work, so that is probably the best way to use this.

Should this work with the obs-studio from the official repos?

I have also noticed that the permissions differ from the plugins that OBS ships with, however this works fine for me on two different systems. Are you sure these permission changes are required?

/usr/lib/obs-plugins/wlrobs.so should be installed with 'install -D -m 0655' instead of 0644. Otherwise it won't work.
