Eyes up livestreamers and video content creators, as there's a new release candidate out for OBS Studio with some huge new features.

There's quite a lot new and improved like a limiter audio filter, an expander audio filter, multi-track audio support with FFmpeg available in advanced output settings, a fourth mic/auxiliary audio option in audio settings, stereo balancing (panning) available in the advanced audio properties section, an option to automatically remux recordings to MP4 and loads more.

Multiple parts of the interface were also improved like a new optional stats dock, an option to change the OBS base/output resolution to the size of a source in the right-click context menu, a light rectangle will show up when hovering your mouse over a source in the preview to show it can be selected, a simplified and improved user experience for the "Stream" page and so on.

For Linux users, one particular highlight is finally seeing support for VAAPI for video encoding.

Additionally, for Windows there's NVENC and Encoding Improvements and Service Integration with different streaming services. In regards to the Service Integration, the OBS team did say "Linux support is planned and a priority" back in December. The latest on that, is they say they need to fix the "official obs-browser build with Linux" which is "something we plan on addressing soon".

See the full release notes here on GitHub.

DraconicroseNow if only they would fix the bug where OBS doesn't create an output file.

Have you reported this on the OBS forums or on Discord? This tends to be an edge case, and the more edge cases we know about, the more of them we can fix. It definitely shouldn't happen.

Yeah, on the forums and the bug tracker:
