Fedora 22 Installation Instructions

The Linux version of obs-studio is still under development and contains many bugs, but if you're feeling like you absolutely have to have this wonderful piece of software, you can install it through Tech-3's Fedora repository.

There are two requirements that must be met first.

Both ffmpeg and x264 are available through the rpmfusion-free repository, so it's a requirement to install those:

For Fedora 22:
Code:
sudo rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-22.noarch.rpm
For Fedora 23:
Code:
sudo rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-23.noarch.rpm
Now we need to import the public GPG key that is used to sign all the packages in the Tech-3 Repo:

Code:
sudo rpm --import http://repo.tech-3.net/Fedora/TECH3-GPG-KEY.public
Now we can install obs-studio:

Code:
sudo dnf -config-manager --add-repo http://repo.tech-3.net/Fedora/tech-3.repo
sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install obs-studio
This installs OBS Studio to your system. You can run OBS from either the menu (Its under Sound and VIdeo category) or from command line 'obs' (without quotes of course).

If you run into problems, or the package appears to be broken for Fedora 22, please contact myself at joe@tech-3.net and I'll see if it's a problem with the build I did.

The packages will be updated on the release frequency that the main branch is on.

Currently, I am providing both 32-bit and 64-bit packages and source RPMs. I do not guarantee the source rpms will install correctly tho. They are not needed for the operation of OBS-STUDIO, but needed for building plugins against it.

If you need specific plugins built, I can set up a repo that provides them built against these RPMs.

Awesome to see that there is now a fedora repo available. I am going to reach out to tech-3 and see why they are running there own repo vs using copr out of curiosity but it's great to see my prefered distro get some obs repo love. I've been building it as a portable package on my centos 7 workstation for several months now.

what's the eta on the additional options in the windows version of OBS coming to Linux?

i recently booted into my fedora partition to do some things and checked out OBS and noticed quiet a few key options missing,

Er.. I think you mean options that are available in the original OBS version versus the Multiplatform ?

If so, which key options are missing so Jim and the other devs might be able to answer?

on windows i have v0.656b (just downloaded update today)

and when you go into settings there's a ton of options but in the one in Fedora only had about 3-4 menus and there wasnt nearly as many options, but seeing the replies in my other thread about Elgato support I probably wont ever need the Linux version and just continue using my windows version.

In terms of settings, almost of the settings that can be set in OBS1 are present in OBS MP (except for one or two non-implemented features, and some settings that were removed because they were irrelevant to the new version).

Can't get it to work on Fedora 23: Error: nothing provides libx264.so.142()(64bit)

Rawhide not up to date with 23 yet maybe? OP any advice?

Fedora 23 isn't officially released, and the current OBS-MP is built against Fedora 22. Once Fedora 23 is released, I'll roll a version for that.

Repo is up and updated. Check the obs-studio.repo file to make sure that the baseurl looks like:

Code:
baseurl=http://repo.tech-3.net/Fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
If it doesn't, edit it as such, or pull a fresh copy from my repo:

http://repo.tech-3.net/Fedora/tech-3.repo

I'll update the Wiki for Fedora 22/23 repos. CentOS is taking longer due to differences in how the packages are dealt with.

I do have the SRPM's but i don't provide them by default. If you want them I can provide a link.

That said, 0.13.2 will go live tomorrow during my lunch break.
