Disclaimer: This is a test build, not a full release. This build may contain bugs or broken functionality. For production usage, we still recommend using the latest stable build of OBS. If you are willing to test this build, please let us know if you run into any issues.

We have beta build for OBS Studio 28.0 available for testing! This will be an enormous release with several features and upgrades that will need extensive testing, including the following:
  • HDR and 10-bit color support (Windows, macOS/Linux support limited)
  • Native Apple Silicon Support (macOS)
    • Note that many third-party plugins will need to release Apple Silicon versions of their plugins in order for them to work on Apple Silicon builds of OBS
  • Upgrade UI framework to Qt6 (All platforms)
    • NOTE: Unfortunately, this means OBS Studio can no longer support the following operating systems:
      • Windows 7 & 8
      • macOS 10.13 & 10.14
      • Ubuntu 18.04
      • All 32-bit operating systems
    • Additionally, many third-party plugins that depend on legacy Qt5 components may not work until they are updated.
  • obs-websocket 5.0 plugin native integration. Read more here! (All platforms)
  • Updated AMD Encoder implementation (Windows)
  • Support for ScreenCaptureKit on macOS 12.5+ for significantly improved capture performance (macOS)
  • Significant improvements to Apple VT encoder (macOS)
  • Application-specific audio capture (Windows)
  • Integrated NVIDIA Background Removal (Windows)
  • Automatically split recordings by time or filesize (All platforms)
  • New default theme, Yami (All platforms)
  • And much, much more!

Hi there!

Love the new theme. Is there a way to make the elements smaller?

You can modify the theme's QSS file to reduce/remove the padding for those buttons, but any future updates will overwrite any local modifications.

I choose HEVC but my stream doesnt start :/

You must choose a streaming service that supports HEVC. The only one that supports HEVC right now is YouTube using HLS. If you have selected that already, please provide a log file.

How did you get HEVC to show up in the Streaming section? I don't have it :(

You must have a graphics card that supports HEVC, and you must have selected a streaming service that supports HEVC. The only one that supports HEVC right now is YouTube using HLS.

Please report this to the authors/maintainers of those plugins.

Are you going to update the audio application capture to allow multiple executables on the same "capture" like the win audio capture plugin for OBS 27?

We are unlikely to be changing the functionality of this feature at this time. Development time is focused on bug fixes now. If you require this functionality, please continue to use the third-party plugin.

It's a neat feature but of course, bugs take priority. I'll keep my hopes up that you guys will find the time to add that functionality soon! I'll be doing further testing during the week trying to find any bugs for you but so far it's been stable. Love the new theme, makes things way easier to read.
 
Any idea what the difference between "H264/AVC Encoder (AMD Advanced Media Framework) and "AMD HW H.264" is when selecting the encoder options. I'm curious which is the updated option that is unique to version 28.

"AMD HW H.264" is the new implementation. "H264/AVC Encoder (AMD Advanced Media Framework)" is the old implementation.

Anyone knows if there is any way to remove this red icon when recording on Mac? It seems to be a new feature for 28.0 and I really wish to hide it.

Looking forward to use the new OBS!

How can I check that my laptop is capable of stream to YouTube in HDR/HLS/HVEC format?

My laptop is

Proc. Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-1065G7 CPU @ 1.30GHz 1.50 GHz
Memory 16,0 GB
64 bit, x64-based processor
Nvidia MX330

The current OBS offers me X264 or Quicksync H264 for streaming and SVT-AV1, AOM-AV1, AV1 (VIA AOM), Apple Prores )Prores_aw, via FFMpeg) for recording.


Thanks in advance!

Verify if your graphics card support HEVC.
