The free and open source video livestreaming and capture software, OBS Studio, has a brand new release now available with lots of new goodies to play with.
OBS Studio 25.0 arrived yesterday and one of the highlights for Linux users is the inclusion of a proper browser plugin by default now. No more hunting around for an external plugin. Thanks to the inclusion of this, another new feature added works in the Linux version, allowing you to drag and drop from a website into OBS Studio to create browser sources. Quite a clever feature, allowing people to setup all sorts of additions that others can just drop right into their OBS scene.
They also added support for the open source SRT protocol, the ability to lock the volume of a source in the audio mixer right click menu, for Linux a crash-bug with PulseAudio made it in for a smoother experience, the tray icon now updates to show when a recording is paused, there's a new ability to copy/paste multiple selected sources and more.
As a reminder, their new Vulkan-capture feature is only available on Windows as Linux does not have a Game Capture feature in OBS. Instead, we just rely on Window Capture which works quite well. That's not to say the Linux version won't have a form of Game Capture in future though, it's open source after all.
