Hi

I am new to the raspberry pi and installing things on it. I have followed the instructions & also the youtube video on this & i am getting an error message and the installation fails. i was wondering if anything was obvious that i am doing wrong

I have similar issue. Any thoughts on a fix?

I was able to install OBS by cloning simde from GitHub and then copying simde-math.h from /pi/simde and pasting it into /pi/obs-studio/libobs/util/simde. You can do this right before running sudo make -j4. Now if I could only get OBS to recognize my Auvidea B101 on CS-2 with the Toshiba drivers...
Or add that step to the online instructions or at least a note to this effect.

sudo git clone https://github.com/simd-everywhere/simde.git
sudo cp /home/pi/Downloads/simde/simde/simde-math.h /home/pi/Downloads/obs-studio/libobs/util/simde
#
cd obs-studio
sudo mkdir build && cd build
sudo cmake -DUNIX_STRUCTURE=1 -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ..
sudo make -j4
sudo make install
obs #only need to run this command from now on

exit 0
With just a little slight modification I was able to get past the error by cloning the git and then while the script was running, as the directory has to be created before the copy. sudo cp ~/simde/simde/simde-math.h ~/obs-studio/libobs/util/simde

Thanks for the script, it's saved me from a lot of digging around :D

I'd just like to point out that running literally every command in your script as root (with sudo) is excessive and dangerous. The only things that need to be run with sudo are the things that modify your system - the apt and dpkg commands, and the make install right near the end. Using it for everything else means that you need to be root to modify anything downloaded here, but also opens you up to security bugs etc in the commands, since they all operate on data received from the internet.

I've attached a modified version of the script including the simde-math.h fix with the unneccessary sudo commands removed and with a few small changes to make it work a little more generically (this will use an obs-build directory in the current user's home rather than hardcoding /home/pi/Downloads). The libfdk-aac deps are still a little unsafe though because we're not verifying them before installation like apt would do.

To use it, download the script, rename it to mkobs.sh, then run:
Code:
chmod +x mkobs.sh
./mkobs.sh

Hi there!

After installing a lot of missing libraries with synaptic, I was able to install it! Thanks a lot for all the contributors :)

Now I'm running into other kind of problem:

My project is to run videos using mpv player and stream them live. It works, but with extreme framerate loss. yes .. I'm trying to stream on 720p and 30fps, so maybe a 4gb rpi4 just can't do the job (?)

I've not made it posible to use hardware acceleration on mpv or hardware encoding on obs. My guessing is that, been able to activate those, the stream would work better.

Do someone knows if it's possible?

Or could give some hints for a softer streaming?

Thanks again!

I made some changes to the obs source code so that it can be cloned and installed for arm/raspberry pi. Also edited the ndi and websocket plugins so you can install those as well.

Repos:
Script to install obs with the plugins:

Script is inspired from @eltariel
To use it, download the script, rename it to installobs.sh, then run:
Code:
chmod +x installobs.sh
./installobs.sh

Hi,

Has someone get this to run on the 64bit version of raspi os? The scrips failed if i tryed. I realy want to use the 64bit version otherwise, the 8 gb ram are bot supported. Also tryed it on Ubuntu, i got obs to run but not Browser Source (realy need it for a webcam)

Installs and works well in Ubuntu 20.04 mate. Thankyou. Any possibility to force a virtul webcam per instructions "Creating a killer OBS installation on Ubuntu Linux for teaching & streaming into a video conference" by

Kenga Solutions
See youtube presentation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSSrSRO644c
It compiles fine but does not create the required v4l2sink link in tools.

Sry for no more details on what point the scrips I tryed failed on raspi-od 64bit. I coming from a long try, compile and error run, ( at least on ubuntu 64bit) I just want to know if I was too stupid and that it worked for someone. On raspi-os 64 I allready getting trouble with the make istall command, teh scrip stoped - because he can't get started with the "install routine". I have already researched the network for this. Apparently cmake was missing. I have installed it, same problem. After this i got obs to run on Ubuntu Mate 64x out of the box but with missing all the goodis ( browser plugin etc... ) If I try the script from @venepe in ubuntu, obs won't start ( some error US_EN Text)

I'll do a more detailed analysis later.

I'm a beginner in raspberry and linux, but I would like to test obs. however I am facing this error.
