This plugin, in concept, is an amazing idea. Helps adding a feature that Streamlabs OBS has and OBS Studio does not. IF IT WORKS!

This feature constantly just crashes my computer otherwise. I have the latest of both OBS Studio and this plugin. I have a beefy computer and a 2080 Super GPU, so i shouldn't have a problem.

I would re-rate this plugin if it were stable - because it would solve a problem i have presently with OBS Studio over Streamlabs, yet this could be FAR better than what streamlabs has available if it worked right.
As incredible a plugin as this is, I have not had a single good experience with it. Every time I try to take advantage of this plugin to make my video editing easier, OBS crashes constantly, whether it be freezing and not doing anything, or waiting for me to force close it. I want to love this plugin, but it needs some massive improvements first. Hopefully this can be fixed and we can all take advantage of this incredible plugin! :)
As cool as an idea as this is, I've yet to get the replay buffer working. I have installed everything fresh and tried it in brand new scene collections, but no joy as of yet. If I can figure it out, I'll be a happy chap.
I like to use this amazing plugin, but in reality it is limitedly useful, because each grab have a lot of audible "cracks", and this never changes, despite of trying every possible configuration, even in the resetted config. (Meanwhile, the main Recording has no crack at all)

I would suggest:
- To heal this bug.
- to create an option "Record and break", and another "Record (no break)" because it keeps recording while the main recording is on pause... So the duration of the source recorded file is different and this is a big problem, it makes very difficult to edit!
- To create an option "Audio Only" (just to capture the original sound and minimize GPU use and Disk space.
Notice that my OBS has crashed by shutting down OBS after installation of the Plugin.

But the idea of this plugin ist really fantastic, and I encourage the author to make these revisions! thank you a lot for all the other plugins, especially Audio Monitor, my preferred Plugin!

Thank you a lot!
So far I have downloaded it and installed it into the right folder I would like to say over 10 times now. I love the concept and would love to have this work properly for me. But even before I updated my obs version the plugin still wasn't working. If the plugin can be updated to 27.2.4 that would be wonderful. But so far sense I have no way of directly telling if it is (because in the overview it only shows the plugin version and not the version compatibility) I won't be able to use it. If I could have help figuring out why it won't show up, that would be great. If it's just the version compatibility then I will just have to hope the creators can update it soon enough.
It's truly a great idea but a terrible plugin!
For some reason it stops recording in the middle of a session, and it makes for double the work!
Is a great and useful plugin when it works, yet sometimes using source record on my facecam will only have 1 file saved, (expecting the regular recording and facecam source record) and it will sometimes be corrupted.
Still randomly breaks for no apparent reason. Also somehow messes up the active/visibility signal for the entire OBS Studio instance, which makes almost everything stop working correctly.
This seems to work fine if you want to constantly record a single source. Unfortunately, I only wanted this to record gaming clip highlights without my streaming overlays via the replay buffer feature. This was for a possible alternative to Shadowplay. I have tried for 3 days going through every config I can think of, but no matter what I do, I cannot get this feature to work. It will not record the source replay buffer. Regular OBS replay buffer works fine, but the source record replay buffer feature does not ever output anything when I hit the hotkey.
i cannot for the life of me get it to work with replay buffer, ive tried changing the encoders, i verified the settings, ensured replay buffer was enabled, checked settings again, and still nothing. it works if i use replay, but how i record things is mainly highlights and clips. but im at a loss at this point. this seemed like a saving grace to my issues but it seems not :(
