Hi everyone! I am trying to build obs-rtspserver plugin for my jetson with linux. I got an error "Could NOT find obs-frontend-api (missing: OBS_FRONTEND_API_INCLUDE_DIR)"

Here are my steps:

1. Cloning the repository and changing the current folder:
root@jetson-desktop:/home/jetson/Downloads/obs-studio-26.1.2/plugins# git clone
Cloning into 'obs-rtspserver'...
remote: Enumerating objects: 3646, done.

Resolving deltas: 100% (2197/2197), done.

root@jetson-desktop:/home/jetson/Downloads/obs-studio-26.1.2/plugins# cd obs-rtspserver/

2. Creating a "build" directory and changing the current folder:
root@jetson-desktop:/home/jetson/Downloads/obs-studio-26.1.2/plugins/obs-rtspserver# mkdir build && cd build

3. Setting the value for DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE
root@jetson-desktop:/home/jetson/Downloads/obs-studio-26.1.2/plugins/obs-rtspserver/build# cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..
Git Tag: v2.2.1-2-g2f1617b
Git Tag Version: 2.2.1-2-g2f1617b
Git Tag Short Version: 2.2.1
Git Tag Long Version:
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:5 (project):
project with VERSION must use LANGUAGES before language names.

Here I got a mistake and fixed it. I changed the 5th line in CMakeLists.txt:
root@jetson-desktop:/home/jetson/Downloads/obs-studio-26.1.2/plugins/obs-rtspserver/build# vi ../CMakeLists.txt

project(obs-rtspserver VERSION ${OBS_PLUGUIN_LONG_VERSION}
DESCRIPTION "RTSP server plugin for obs-studio")

project(obs-rtspserver VERSION ${OBS_PLUGUIN_LONG_VERSION}

But after that I received this one:

root@jetson-desktop:/home/jetson/Downloads/obs-studio-26.1.2/plugins/obs-rtspserver/build# cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..
Git Tag: v2.2.1-2-g2f1617b-dev
Git Tag Version: 2.2.1-2-g2f1617b-dev
Git Tag Short Version: 2.2.1
Git Tag Long Version:
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.10/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:137 (message):
Could NOT find obs-frontend-api (missing: OBS_FRONTEND_API_INCLUDE_DIR)

external/BuildHelper.cmake:16 (find_package)
CMakeLists.txt:15 (include)

Can you tell me what can I do to solve this problem? I tried to set the value for OBS_FRONTEND_API_INCLUDE_DIR, but received 100% the same mistake.

Any help will be appreciated!
