The provided binary requires OBS Studio 26.0.0 or later (macOS and Windows), OBS Studio 27.0.0 or later (Linux). If you build from source, it should work with OBS-Studio 24.

What is VNC
VNC is a system to display and control remote desktop using RFB protocol.
MacOS natively support RFB as a Screen Sharing service.
There are some implementations of VNC server for Windows and Linux.

VNC is a lightweight system to display and control the remote desktop through the Internet even over the countries.
If you want to display movies for example, I recommend to use NDI Tools + obs-ndi or hdmi + capture device.

You can donate to me via PayPal, GitHub, or Ko-fi.

Works great. Worked completely as expected. Saved me a lot of time setting up a separate VNC client and doing a window capture
Thank you for putting a review.
Btw, just in case if you have some knowledge in C and interested in headless operation, libvncserver is also a good tool. It includes sample codes written in C to capture and save to image file and video file.
