Little bit of good news to start Tuesday, as the excellent livestreaming and recording software OBS Studio got another good donation recently, this time from Red Hat.
Red Hat certainly aren't the first big company to help fund OBS development, software that has become essential for so many different uses. Nice to see a bigger Linux and open source company jump in though with the confirmation of the $10,000 donation on Twitter.
This actually puts Red Hat in the top 5 of companies who have donated to OBS via their OpenCollective campaign.
In other OBS related news, it seems they're going to be moving their official Linux packages over to Flatpak rather than just having an official PPA for Ubuntu. This is fantastic news, as it means all the proper service integration will be easily available to all Linux users. Although it’s nothing to do with the donation from Red Hat.
We still remember trying to livestream on Linux before OBS Studio came along, what a complete pain that was. OBS is another incredible project that really shows the power of open source. Super useful for other uses too because of all the easy to use plugins from podcasts to plain video content creation.
