OBS Studio 23.0 Release Candidate 2

Release Candidate 2 Fixes/Changes
Fixed a bug where there was a chance for a crash on shutdown
Fixed a crash when starting certain types of encoders before starting the new NVENC encoder
Fixed authentication from the Auto-Configuration dialog not initializing properly
Fixed a bug where there was a chance for the program to freeze up when stopping a new NVENC encoder
Fixed a number of race conditions and memory leaks, improving the programs overall stability
Psycho-Visual Tuning is now enabled by default as a test for RC2
Increased the default size of the Twitch "Stream Stats" panel so that affiliates/partners can see their subscriber count/points
New NVENC settings are no longer exposed to the older version of NVENC (for now)
Added a missing text string for the Remux recordings dialog
The slideshow source now will update when you press OK or Apply on its properties rather than when you modify any setting. This prevents the source from reloading its images on any change.
Removed unused 'help' icons from from the title bar of many various dialogs, both new and old

OBS Studio 23.0 Release Candidate 1

Service Integration (Windows)
Added the ability to connect your account of certain services directly from within OBS (with more services in the works). This feature is optional, but when your account is connected, you do not have to enter in a stream key, and gain access to special features related to that service, such as a chat panel or stream configuration/statistics panels.
Twitch integration: Added Twitch chat panel (with BTTV/FFZ support), the Twitch "Stream Information" dashboard panel allowing you to change your stream title/game/etc from within OBS, and the Twitch "Stream Stats" dashboard panel which shows statistics such as viewer count (Stream Stats is hidden by default, you can unhide it in the View menu -> Docks submenu).
Mixer integration: Added Mixer chat panel
Web panels (such as chat panels) used with services are dockable; you can dock/undock the windows to customize how you want them to be placed when using OBS.
YouTube, Facebook, and more services are still in the works; more to come soon.
Service integration is currently only available on Windows for now, though Linux and Mac will be added at a later point depending on issues that arise.
NVENC and Encoding Improvements (Windows)
A new implementation of NVENC has been added which has improved performance, reducing system and resource impact. Note that the new implementation is not available on Windows 7 due to limitations in the operating system; the old implementation will be used instead in that case.

Added new features to the new NVENC implementation:

Psycho-visual Tuning: Enables encoder settings that optimize the use of bitrate for increased perceived visual quality, especially in situations with high motion, at the cost of increased GPU utilization.
Look-ahead: Enables dynamic B-frames. If disabled, the encoder will always use the number of B-frames specified in the 'Max B-frames' setting. If enabled, it will increase visual quality by only using however many B-frames are necessary, up to the maximum, at the cost of increased GPU utilization.
General Changes
Added a Limiter audio filter.
Added an Expander audio filter.
Added VAAPI video encoder on Linux.
Added batch remuxing support to the Remux Recordings dialog.
Added an option to automatically remux recordings to MP4 in Advanced settings.
Added a Decklink output tool to the tools menu. This allows you to output OBS to a Decklink device.
Added an optional Stats dock. This dock is disabled by default; you can enable this dock in the View menu -> Docks submenu.
Added Keyer support to the Decklink source.
Added multi-track audio support to FFmpeg output in advanced output settings.
Added an About dialog to the Help menu.
Added a filter (search) option to the Hotkeys section of the settings window.
Added a fourth Mic/Auxiliary audio option in Audio settings.
Added stereo balancing (panning) to the Advanced Audio Properties dialog.
Added an option to change the OBS base/output resolution to the size of a source in the right-click context menu of the source. Only works when no outputs are active.
Added a "deactivate when not showing" option to the Decklink source.
Added an Invert Polarity audio filter.
Added an F2 shortcut to rename sources or scenes when selected.
Added VLC source support to the Instant Replay script.
When your mouse cursor is hovering over a source in the preview, a light rectangle will show up around it indicating that it can be selected.
When a source is dragged outside of the preview area, there is a new visualization for the unseen area of that source while selected.
Simplified and improved the user experience of the "Stream" page of both the settings and auto-configuration windows.
The source selection rectangle has been improved.
The slideshow source now only loads a maximum of 15 images at a time, and dynamically loads images beyond that count as they cycle. This was done to prevent people who put countless files in the slideshow source from running out of memory.
When in studio mode, you can no longer transition if you're already in the middle of a transition.
Fixed a bug where narration tools for the blind would not read out the items in the source list box in the main window when selected.
Removed a number of internal/uncapturable Microsoft program windows from the game/window capture window lists.
Increased the Instant Replay script retry interval.
Fixed a bug where fullscreen projectors would always be on top despite that setting being unchecked.
Docks are now unlocked by default. You can lock/unlock docks in the View menu -> Docks submenu.

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.

One of the superior optimize streaming software, MUCH MORE better for hardware then - Xsplit and simply aswell Adobe Encoder and etc... Also the best of the best FREE out there and everywhere.

Amazingly easy to set up. Watched a 5 min tutorial and was up and running.

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.

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.
