obs-ndi - NewTek NDI™ integration into OBS Studio 4.6.0

Only use this release with OBS 22 or above!

Changes since 4.5.3
  • Fix for microstutter issues encountered by several users (courtesy of @loopy750)
  • Bugfix: the Dedicated Output filter used to output nothing if a Color Correction filter was placed on first position of a filter chain
  • Source: new "Latency" option.
    • Be careful: setting this to "Low" can cause microstutters. Use with caution!
  • Source and Output: native support for NV12 and I420 YUV pixel formats.
    • Previous versions of the plugin used to perform the conversion to NDI's native UYVY format, but now the NDI SDK supports these two formats natively, removing the need for any conversion performed by the plugin.
  • Linux + macOS bugfix: NDI Name text inputs for program and output were not visible
  • macOS enhancement: try to prevent App Nap from suspending background tasks
  • NDI SDK support updated to version 3.8
  • Catalan localization
  • NDI runtime version now shown at the bottom of the settings dialog (and printed in the current log)
  • Output: slightly improved memory allocation in the audio output code
  • Automated macOS builds now use Azure Pipelines instead of Travis CI
Windows, Linux and macOS Install instructions: see the release page on GitHub.

Changes since 4.5.1
  • Source: remove the "Default" value for the YUV range and colorspace fields. Default values for these fields are now Partial range with BT.709 colorspace
  • Source: the "Source name" field is now an Editable Combo field (current value can be selected from the list of available NDI sources as usual, or typed manually). This prevents the currently selected source name from disappearing from the list whenever the source becomes unavailable.
  • Preview Output: use the same YUV settings as the Main Output
  • Bugfix: Qt version mismatch on macOS
  • Preview Output Improvement: fix handling of scene preview change events to properly keep track of the current preview scene

Changes since 4.1.3
  • macOS releases now use the NDI runtime installed from the redistributable.
  • Source:
    • Lower input latency
    • New "Sync" option. You can choose between "Internal" (generate frame timestamps locally) or "Network" (use NDI frame timestamps). Use "Internal" mode if you encounter audio desync issues.
    • New "Bandwidth" option (replaces the "Low bandwidth" checkbox). You can choose between "Highest", "Lowest" or "Audio Only".
  • "Dedicated output" filter:
    • Lower output latency
    • New "NDI name" option. Dedicated output NDI name is now independent from the filter's name.
    • Now compatible with audio-only sources (like the Desktop audio source).
