OBS Studio 20.0.1 Hotfix Changes

Fixed a crash with the image slide show that could happen under certain circumstances
Fixed a bug which caused the Stats window to stop monitoring streaming/recording unless they were both active at the same time

OBS Studio 20.0

Changes
Added new modular user interface that allows the user to move, disable, and customize elements of the UI. To unlock, go to the View menu, then the "Docks" sub-menu, and un-check "Lock UI". To reset to the default style, use "Reset UI"
Added Stinger transitions, which allow the ability to use video files as a transition with a specific transitioning point timing during playback of the video
Added a new "Auto" server for Twitch which will automatically select the server with the best routing. In addition, Twitch servers are now sorted based on the best route (as determined by Twitch)
Added support for Mixer's FTL protocol which allows low-latency streaming on Mixer. To use, open Settings, go to the Stream section, and set the service to "Mixer.com - FTL"
Added the option to disable looping in the image slide show, and stop or become hidden when all slides have been played
Added the option to change the visibility behavior of the image slide show: Pause when not in the current scene, restart when in the current scene, or always play regardless
Added the option to manually control the image slide show with hotkeys
Added the ability for the blackmagic source to automatically detect resolution/format rather than having to set it manually each time
Added ability to lock sources to prevent accidentally clicking on and modifying the position of a source
Added the ability to zoom in the preview for detailed editing while in canvas/output preview scaling modes. To use, click the preview, then hold down space bar and use the mouse wheel scroll to zoom in/out
Added a "Defaults" button to the filters and properties windows which will reset values to their defaults
Added a new "Rachni" theme
Added a "Fullscreen Interface" option to the view menu
Added the ability to use certain Japanese and European-specific keys as hotkeys
Added the ability to modify projectors from the tray menu
Added a network buffering option to the VLC source
Added a --multi command line option to suppress the multiple instance warnings
Added a "Below Normal" process priority to the process priority option in advanced settings on windows
Audio meters will now temporarily change their color to red when audio is clipping (too loud)
When using the auto-configuration dialog with Twitch, it will now automatically test the 3 servers with the best route
Made a few key improvements to the windows AMD AMF encoder. Fixed a potential crash, added support for AMF 1.4.4, added compatibility for newer drivers such as 17.7.2, and improved support for older drivers like 16.11.5 and 16.12.1
Fixed an issue where the settings window could sometimes get stuck with a bad size
Fixed a bug where cropped sources would have incorrect alpha handling
Fixed a bug where scene collections/profiles wouldn't properly overwrite existing if the user chooses to do so
Fixed a crash that would happen if the program starts on a system with an unsupported video card, the program will now display a message as was originally intended
Fixed various minor bugs

Quiet day so wanted to test this just for the halibut. My rating means nothing since it should make it very clear that it won't work on XP. It just says "Windows" This program needs Vista sp2 and above with DX10.


Jun 21, 2014 Version: 0_625b OS: WinXP Ease of use: -/10 Functionality: -/10 Value for money: -/10 Overall: 5/10



I know it's still in beta, but my experience wasn't particularly happy. I'm certainly not a "video ace", but I have a bit of experience.

I looked at the download choices and selected the portable version: I unzipped the 64-bit version in a folder and with a click, the program started just fine.

This, however, was the end of the fun. I found the interface anything but intuitive, but after LOTS of clicking around and looking at the online help >(for some reason the built-in help file was blank), I was sort of able to make a movie of myself with my webcam.

The result was lousy, though I have to confess I didn't try to modify any of the settings. One problem was that the resolution of my monitor (2560x1440) is much higher than that of my webcam, so the movie didn't fill the entire image window. Also, my graphics card (Matrox M9128) isn't particularly designed for video, so the film was choppy - although when I take movies with my digicams, the results are super. Finally, the sound - taken with the mike of my Logitech C910 webcam - was badly out of sync and started with me sounding like Frankenstein but ended with me sounding like Mickey Mouse. Weird.

Anyway, I just tried it because I had nothing to do, but it's not a program I'll look at again. Sorry. Maybe someone with more experience will have better results.
