Are you a video content creator on Linux using OBS Studio? Chances are if you livestream you have lots of windows open for chat and all sorts and OBS Studio might be about to make that easier for you.

There's an open Pull Request on the OBS Studio page on GitHub (meaning it's not in the project yet), which adds in the ability to add in dedicated web browser windows docked directly into OBS Studio. The idea is to bring the browser integration closer in parity to the Windows version.

Here's an example of how it could look for you, with a Twitch Chat bar docked into the OBS Studio windows:

Having more tools available in the Linux version is going to be great. This is why open source is great, as any developer can come along and submit the code for it like we've seen here. I know plenty of times having browser docks like this would have saved some hassle. Hopefully you will find this useful too.

If you wish to try it out right now with no fuss it's available in the handy Snap package. Based on my own testing, it does appear to work quite well.
