The big update to the awesome recording and livestreaming software OBS Studio is now out, with tons of goodies included.
Some highlights from this release include Limiter and Expander audio filters, a VAAPI video encoder for Linux, multi-track audio support to FFmpeg output, an option to automatically remux recordings to MP4, an option to change the OBS base/output resolution to the size of a source in the right-click context menu of the source and so on.
The biggest thing is the VAAPI video encoder, which has been available in special builds for a while but now it's official more Linux users of OBS Studio should have a better experience.
See more on the official GitHub.
As a reminder, they also integrated livestreaming services so that you can connect to websites like Twitch. This means you won't need to enter a streaming key, while also getting access to special features like the chat panel and more right in OBS. Sadly, that's only in the Windows version right now. However, they're working on it for Linux too they just need to get their official obs-browser source build fixed up which they didn't have time for this release.
