Video source plugin (OBS Classic only)


Forum Moderator
Per your request I installed both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the plugin to fresh copies of OBS and both worked fine. If the plugin suddenly stopped working we'd be hearing from a heck of a lot more users.

I love this plugin, but it would be really nice if it also came to OBS Studio since you can't create a playlist.

I seem to be having a similar issue with the plugin. I did every step instructed and installed the plugin. I tried both 64 and 32. When I tried the 64, OBS said that it was for the wrong version, so I tried 32 again. Still nothing. Nothing is showing up as "video." Help with this would be amazing.

Trying to play some of MP4s what i had recorded from OBS they all work fine in other programs,
but playing some back to add or edit them they crash OBS but they are saying its this plugin is the problem.


In OBS-Studio you can use the Media Source, it comes right with OBS-Studio. It allows you to add video files to your scene.

This Thread and the Video Source Plugin are for the classic OBS (v0.657b) though. Plugins have to be re-written to work between OBS and OBS-Studio. So you cannot use this Video Source Plugin in OBS-Studio.
The thing is, there is no queues :(


I suggest installing a new machine and also installing the plugin and see if it works. i want to use OBS but I can not if this plug in does not work.
Pete, the directory you showed is a screenshot of is the 64-bit programs directory (C:\Program Files\) but the program screenshot you're running is the 32-bit version, launched from "C:\Program Files (x86)\" ... you need to extract the files into the proper directory for the 32-bit version of OBS, or launch the 64-bit version of OBS, as you extracted the files into that directory already...

Great plugin! Only bummer for me, is that the volume feature is not working on my MP3. Even at the lowest setting, it plays at full volume. Any ideas?

You will probably want to take a look at OBS-Studio, it can add chroma key to any source as a filter. (Video source in OBS-Studio is called Media Source)
The video plugin for OBS classic will probably not see any more updates.

for some strange reason it doesn't seem to be working. i downloaded the plugin extracted the files and placed them in the plugin folder but when i got to add a video source it just doesn't show up on the list.

This plugin is for OBS Classic, which is Windows-only. The Mac version of OBS is OBS Studio, and it already has a media source built in.
