FFmpeg Version on Windows


New Member
Hello. Is there any plan of upgrading FFmpeg (libav*) version for Windows?
I'm building plugin executables (DLLs) for Windows, and I wonder if FFmpeg API change could break my DLL on a newer version of OBS.

Updating the FFmpeg version on OBS is planned, however there's no set timeframe. Any such update will be mentioned in the OBS Discord and in the release notes of OBS. Personally, I have no idea if there would be any breaking changes, but I assume such an update will be tested extensively by the team.

I'd say it's safe to build your plugin as-is, and just keep an eye out.
