Version history / Release notes / Changelog


OBS 23.2 Release Candidate 1

New Features/Improvements
Made a number of major internal improvements to the macOS browser source, eliminating many mac-related crashes that it would cause when browser sources were in use on macOS. This also fixes the issue of the program having an initial startup delay where the everything appeared blank. (Author note: I managed to get browser panels functioning, but they still have some issues, so service integration is still not yet available on macOS)
Added the ability to preview transitions in the properties of a transition via a new Preview button
Added an estimate to remaining available recording time according to available disk space
Added luma key video effect filter
Added the ability to set the exact desired dB volume value of sources in the advanced audio properties, replacing the percentage value
Added the ability to center items vertically/horizontally in the transform menus
Added a hotkey to toggle the preview
Added the ability to output the preview rather than program to a decklink device when in studio mode
Added the ability to copy and paste filters to/from scenes in addition to sources
Added the ability to manually set the network buffer size to the Media source when used in URL mode
Added the top patrons list to the about dialog in the help menu
The sources list box in the bottom-center of the main window now displays a message when there are no sources in the current scene, making it easier for first-time users to understand that they need to add sources
Bug Fixes/Tweaks
Fixed an issue on Linux where the program would not be able to capture some monitors
Fixed a bug where the "test bandwidth" option wouldn't reset properly until the program was restarted
Fixed a bug where the program would freeze up when an encoder error occurs in the middle of a recording or stream (it now shows an error and should now safely recover)
Fixed a bug where the selection lines of rotated items would incorrectly scale
Fixed a bug where audio would no longer work when certain types of audio devices are unplugged and plugged back in again
Fixed a bug where you could not press escape to cancel when renaming a scene
Fixed a bug where opacity on the mask/blend filter would not work under certain circumstances
Fixed a bug where fractional framerate recordings (59.94, 29.97) recorded with the new version of NVENC would have incorrect DTS timestamps in the recording file
Fixed an issue with VAAPI encoder on Linux where CBR would not always output at a constant bitrate
Fixed an issue where cookies would not properly be saved for browser panels (Twitch Chat/etc) when shutting down the program
Fixed some crashes that could happen when using QSV
Fixed a few rare crashes
Fixed a few rare/minor memory leaks
Replaced most icons with SVG icons, making icons look better and more consistent across different DPI scalings
Made the mouse wheel scroll the list of properties instead of scrolling individual property values in properties windows
Made the mouse wheel scroll the list of mixer items instead of scrolling individual mixer values
Moved audio monitoring device from advanced settings to audio settings
Improved logging when recording errors occur
Removed the 5 item limit when dragging and dropping files in to OBS
Buttons in the Hotkeys list are now icons rather than text
Changed all opacity spin boxes in filters to sliders
Changed the default size of the color source to the same size as the canvas
Made the Dark theme a bit more consistent across operating systems
Scene item group details are now included in the log file
The stats dock no longer updates when it's not visible
When first renaming a source or scene, the existing text is now automatically selected
The Dark theme has now been renamed to "Dark (Default)", and the "Default" theme has now been renamed to the "System" theme
The cursor is no longer hidden in multiview projectors

Rock solid so far for live camera streaming to a server over the Internet.
I was previously had to use Adobe products that required me to keep a copy of Windows but OBS has let me remove it completely without any loss of streaming functionality.

I don't know why but after the latest update from August, the recording process became unreliable as games and windows begin to crash, despite not having such an issue before.
