This is a simple plugin to mute audio of a source.

Even though a user muted a source in the mixer of OBS Studio, the source sometimes triggers OBS Studio to add more audio buffers.
adding 21 milliseconds of audio buffering, total audio buffering is now 85 milliseconds (source: cam3)

When you mute audio by OBS's mixer, the audio data still goes to the internal audio buffer so that the audio appears as soon as the user unmuted the source. Unlike the OBS's mute, this filter completely discard the audio data at earlier stage than filling the audio buffer.

Possible use cases are
  • Having multiple cameras with embedded audio but don't want to mix together.
  • An unnecessary video source causes audio buffering.

How to Add This Filter
1. Right click your audio source on "Audio Mixer" and click "Filters".
2. Click "+" button on the list of "Audio Filters".
3. Click "Mute Audio".

No property is provided.
