I hope I will be able to add Linux/macOS support soon (using libfreenect2). I'll try to make a version...

How to use it? After I installed the files, I didn't find this kinect source or filter effects.
Do you have a Kinect v2 connected to your computer? Does the OBS log file have something about obs-kinect?

Do the Windows SDK 2.0 example work?

I have a new PC with a Ryzen 7 and 2080...the kinect output freezes every few seconds. Works fine in TouchDesigner, so it's obviously the plugin.

Hello, sorry to hear you're experiencing troubles.

Does the Kinect shut down? Does the kinect output update again after freezing (without interaction)? Is the "disable when inactive" option checked?
Is there anything in OBS logs about obs-kinect?
Do the Kinect SDK 2.0 examples work well?

Awesome project! Looking forward for Kinect v1 support, I can't get an adapter for my v2 currently.

Awesome project. I'm unable to get the source to show as a video capture device. I'm able to get the Kinect Studio working. My logs don't show the libraries are failing to load.

Nevermind, found it. The Kinect is a source itself and not a "Video Source". This confused me, because the Kinect also shows as a webcam. Great work on the project, excited to see it keep going.

Release candidate v0.3 works great here so far! Keep up the great work! It is simply fantastic, what you are doing!!! Suddenly my old Kinect 360 has a purpose again! I use it together with the OBS VirtualCam tool for MS Teams.

This is very handy. However a suggestion I would have is.. would it be possible to add bokeh/ Gaussian blur as an option also. So instead of green screen effect u can adjust the level of blue around you. I think this would a lot to the quality of kinect as a cam in obs.

Gaussian blur is supported since version 0.2. I don't really understand the "level of blue" part tho, what blue?

My favourite feature of this great plugin, other than it now supports the original Kinect 360, is the ability to use the source in multiple ways. Here I have my body tracked and cut out in front of multicoloured depth maps, layered and coloured changed by a filter from OBS.

How did you do that? I am very interested to learn...

Add Kinectsource colour camera with greenscreen body enabled.
Add Kinectsource depth camera with greenscreen body-enabled, add filter for red.
Repeat above line for the other colours and layer as appropriate. Simples!

Hey, this is a fantastic plugin. Huge props for adding Kinect v1 support as well. It was working fine for weeks with my 360 Kinect until recently I get an error " [obs-kinect] failed to initialize Kinect: The hub and motor are connected, but the camera is not " even though nothing else is utilizing the camera. Any ideas what would cause this?
