How to compile changes to the build and debug?


New Member
I'm developing on Linux (Ubuntu 20.04 LTS) with VS Code.

I was under the impression that building with CMake would compile my changes into the new build under the build/rundir/RelWithDebInfo/bin/64bit directory.

So, I just made a small change in the UI by changing the text string on the "Start Streaming" button:


I then built through CMake like so (inside the build directory):

I then launch the obs file inside the build/rundir/RelWithDebInfo/bin/64bit directory.

No changes to be seen. I also checked the obs-studio-portable build that was placed into my home directory when building through CMake, no luck there either.

So, what am I doing wrong here?

Also I'm wondering if anybody knows if it's possible to debug the code through VS Code on Ubuntu, and if so how.

Thanks in advance!
