Hi, I was all set to help you but after looking at your screenshot I see you're in Windows and I on a Mac. I would suggest you google it on youtube. If you just do a generic OBS Background Removal you will need to sift through till you get this one as they don't say it in the title specifically. I'm not a programmer, but was determined to install it on my Mac, so after many days here and there and crashes I got it to work! I simply matched the extensions and folders from the installer to inside my OBS app and copied and pasted them accordingly. My opinion, it still needs some updating, but it's nice to play around with. Good luck! Oh, did you mean you had it and it doesn't work with the update? Don't know anything about that. Sorry.
Here goes. Good luck!:Can someone provide detailed steps on how to install this plugin on Mac for OS X? I am running Catalina. The terminal installation code does not work on my iMac. Please be specific with which files are being copied into which folders.
I believe many users are encountering this same issues. The terminal commands provided on github assume our files are being downloaded to a specific folder. Another issue is that Safari browser unzips the file by default, rendering the terminal command useless.
Sorry Dave, I'm not a programmer so I can't help you. If this installation was the culprit I would uninstall it. Actually I have two OBS's going at the same time. One that works and the other to experiment on. If you try to install OBS again the installer will ask you if you want to keep both, click both. They number them and you can later name them if you want.....furthermore, what I did was I would keep trying the one with background remover periodically and with the installation of other software like StreamFX and Mac security updates all of a sudden it was a little stable for a little and was more reliable, now it works good, but it may have been coincidental? It was shear insanity to try it over and over again, but it somehow worked! Also, did you delete your earlier attempts? After I deleted the installer that I put in the package contents as advised by the website it worked better. Although, when I chose Robust Video Matting it crashed at that moment so I didn't choose it anymore. It might also be the horsepower of your old mac, but again I'm not a programmer. Good luck!.....Oh, the 2nd OBS sharers basic resources, so if you delete an important resource in one then you might miss it in another. BR shows up in a different spot, but not usable.Thank you Want To Learn for the detailed OS X installation guide!
Background Removal is crashing OBS on my late 2013 iMac 3.2ghz quad core 32gb RAM running Catalina 10.15.7
Ominous, I would check system requirements. I thought this plugin was for later than Win 7., but check to make sure as I am on a Mac and sometimes do virtual windows .I am unable to get this plugin to show up on OBS. Using version 27.2.4, 64bit, on Windows 7. I've seen a few people mention missing DLL dependencies, but that is WAY over my head. Does anyone have a Win7 fix out yet?
Did anyone else get this to work? I am fairly certain I installed in correctly as it shows up in the right spot under filers. However, when I try and use it, the filer cuts off the camera completely and leaves me with only the background color of my choosing . Anyone got a fix for missing camera on this filter? ThanksHere goes. Good luck!:
The Installer Zip:
-Download BR to your hard drive.
-Unzip it. Place it where you can access it on your hard drive.
You will see two folders: Plugins and Resources. You will need to install the contents of the folders from them separately.
OBS app on your Mac:
-Go to your Mac applications folder.
- Right click on the OBS App. You’ll see “Show Package contents”
-Contents - then select the plugins folder.
Installer Zip to Mac OBS package:
- From the Background Removal zip Copy “the background removal.so file” into that plugins folder of OBS that is right below the Mac OS folder. There is another plugins folder, but not that one.You won’t see it yet.
Plugins from Zip to Mac OBS app:
-From the Background removal zip that you just unzipped go to resources -data - OBS Plugins folder and copy OBS Background removal folder from your zip into your OBS plugins folder on your Mac. This will be a sub folder to the data folder, called OBS-plugins. Paste it in there.
Close up OBS file structure and then open up OBS.
This should work.
Please let me know if it works!

Hi BrendonScott, If installed correctly BR should show up in audio video filters not in the effects filters below. This is where you should start. Mine didn't until I installed it correctly. It showed in the bottom effects. The easy fix would be is to resize your camera source in OBS and try it that way, but that would be too easy . Also, maybe you should try the internal Mac camera first if you are using an external camera just to see if it works. I've only used the internal camera of the Mac. Disclaimer: I'm not a programmer, but after much trial and error I got it to work on my Mac. Best of luck to you!Did anyone else get this to work? I am fairly certain I installed in correctly as it shows up in the right spot under filers. However, when I try and use it, the filer cuts off the camera completely and leaves me with only the background color of my choosing . Anyone got a fix for missing camera on this filter? Thanks
