Whether streaming live broadcasts or recording screencasts, can OBS do even more?
Today, OBS (Open Broadcasting Software) added 16 changes and fixes to its software update.
Tip: As with any software update, there will be bugs here and there. So, finish up your major projects before updating. After updating, test it thoroughly before going live publicly.
- Added the ability to hide/show items in the audio mixer via the mixer context menu
- Added the ability to use replay buffer in advanced output mode (Note: cannot be used with the FFmpeg output)
- Added the ability to monitor the audio of stingers via its properties
- Added the ability to change the audio fade mode of stingers via its properties
- Added hotkeys to control VLC source playback (play/pause/restart/stop/next/previous)
- Added pulseaudio audio monitoring support on linux
- Updated x264 and FFmpeg to their latest versions, with new performance optimizations for newer Intel processors
- You can now bring up a context menu via right-clicking the mixer or items in the mixer
- Fixed a bug where if you try to stop the stream while reconnecting, the program could freeze up
- Fixed a bug where the window dimensions would not always restore properly from the last time the program was closed
- Fixed an issue where the program would be milliseconds out of sync
- Fixed a linux crash that could happen on program startup
- Fixed an issue where shuffle in the VLC source would always start from the first item
- Fixed a crash that sometimes occurs when a connection times out
- Made a workaround for a decklink device driver issue where decklink/blackmagic devices could very slowly go out of sync in the blackmagic source (make sure buffering is disabled if you have this issue; buffering is now disabled by default)
- Disabled v-sync preview rendering on mac to prevent it from having an impact on performance
