win-capture-audio v2.2.3-beta

Supported Bit Versions
  1. 64-bit
Source Code URL
https://github.com/bozbez/win-capture-audio
Minimum OBS Studio Version
27.0.0
Supported Platforms
  1. Windows
An OBS plugin similar to OBS's win-capture/game-capture that allows for audio capture from a specific application, rather than the system's audio as a whole. This eliminates the need for third-party software or hardware audio mixing tools that introduce complexity, and in the case of software tools, introduce mandatory latency.

Internally it uses ActivateAudioInterfaceAsync with AUDIOCLIENT_PROCESS_LOOPBACK_PARAMS. This initialization structure is only officially available on Windows 11, however it appears to work additionally on relatively recent versions of Windows 10.

This plugin is in a BETA state, expect issues - https://discord.gg/4D5Yk5gFnM for support and updates.
An updated version of Windows 10 2004 (released 2020-05-27) or later is required.

See the README.md for installation instructions.

Latest reviews

Have been using ever since I found it, fixed a bunch of issues with my audio and eased setting up audio for separated tracks.
Voice wont captured on this plugin on several games with different audio and voice channel, such as warzone, valorant, etc
The plugin is excellent, a function like this should always be in OBS by default, it only has one problem and that is that when I installed and configured it I had to uninstall OBS since it kept crashing when I opened it, I hope it continues to improve so that it is more stable.
I liked the plugin I liked the functions that have a pity that it is not compatible with MacOS X and linux when you will release the final version of win-capture-audio
With the early issues now ironed out, this plugin is a must-have. OBS 28 introduces a similar feature, but doesn't do it nearly as well as this plugin. Incredible work bozbez, thank you for this!
Has worked flawlessly so far!
ok i think i figured it out why this happens. seems like warzone has 2 channels for ingame audio and ingame communication so the plugin picks up only one, the ingame audio. so yeah i think thats what it is.
This plugin is actually a godsend compared to having to use voicemeeter. Yes, my OBS does crash maybe once a week but its a quick restart and it never happens when I'm live or recording. Totally worth it as it's only a beta.

The only gripe I have is that the audio sources show up in the source window as sources. If there could be a way to make this work cross scene without having to use duplicates or make it work inside the audio mixer window the plugin would be essentially perfect and something I would have expected to be in base OBS.

I recommend this plugin to absolutely everyone. Voicemeeter is just waaay too intrusive especially when I'm not using OBS and this plugin completely fixes that for me.
Perfect if it didnt bug occasionally. FInding audio cuts out randomly on long streams but does come back. Not sure how to diagnose or fix. Working on making an asio link pro mix and just monitor everything through obs which is unfortunate
Thank you so much! This should be included in OBS by default please keep it up!
