Did you ever figure out what this was caused by or a solution I have been having these issues for the last few weeks seemingly out of no where and have tried reinstalls of the plugin and OBS with no fix.I have been having MASSIVE issues with the plugin over the last few weeks, and have no idea how to solve the problem. I have tried adjusting settings repeatedly, reinstalling the plugin from scratch, nothing seems to fix the issue. The issue seems to be that every stream, without fail, win-audio-capture breaks down and goes complete robot-mode out of the blue for a few seconds, to up to 30 seconds as seen in the attached clip. I generally stream for about 2 to 3 hours at a time, and so far it only seems to happen once a stream, sometime an hour or more in. This clip was from a stream today, and it was about an hour and 25 minutes in to the stream, and 25 minutes in to capturing the game before the audio blew out. As you can hear from the clip as well, the distortion does not come from OBS capturing my mic, so it 100% is an issue with the plugin. Let me know if there is any other info you would need to diagnose this issue, such as log files
How to add Xbox game bar party chat ? Win+g
Is not recognized into the plugin sources , no sound, only by the main desktop source in obs.
I tried everything , but couldnt get It to work.
I use It to stream while talking with my friend from xbox
Since it won't directly overwrite the file that OBS bundles, it WILL, however, supersede its functionality. You can't use OBS's distributed plugin with the most recent win-capture-audio installed.
I will be trying it with the release version of OBS Studio 28 so I can report on how well it works.
OBS 27.2.4 (64bit)First, which version of the plugin and OBS Studio are you using? Also, which release of Windows 10, including bittedness (i.e. 32- vs. 64-bit) and release (NOT as whether it's "Home", "Pro", "Education" or "Enterprise" or whatever)?
You need at least Windows 10 release 2004, a.k.a. 20H1 at the barest minimum with 20H2 being strongly recommended. Check by using "winver". If it's 1909 or earlier, you MUST update to a newer release. If you are using an LTSC release of Windows 10 Enterprise, it must be 2021 or later.
If you are using a 32-bit release of either OBS Studio or Windows 10, you are out of luck. Both MUST be 64-bit.
If you are using OBS Studio 27.x.y, you need to make sure Application Audio Output Capture is an option. If it is not, you may not have installed the plugin correctly or at all.
If you are using OBS Studio 28.0.0, you need to install the plugin correctly. If you don't, only the default, less-capable OBS Studio plugin will be available as "Application Audio Capture (BETA)" will be visible. Win-capture-audio's source is called "Application Audio Output Capture" and can live alongside OBS Studio's default plugin and will be after the OBS default application audio capture plugin.
Hope this helps.
Can anyone try to start a party chat on Xbox game bar ( Win+g ) and figure out How to make the plugin capture It on obs ?
Anybody else having this issue? @bozbez ?Hey all. Is anyone else seeing this problem with this plugin?
Although I have multiple apps emitting audio, the "currently active sessions" drop down is empty, and the "Add executable" button is greyed out.
I'm running Windows 10 21H2, OBS 28.0.1 and version 2.2.3-beta of this plugin. I've tried running OBS as Administrator and just normally, but neither seem to work.
FWIW, the "built in" version of this plugin in OBS 28 seems to show the processes without problem ... but v2.2.3 is much more attractive because a single source can cater for multiple applications.
Thanks in advance for the help.

The Plug-in recognizes the GameBar.exe application but does not capture the audio.First of all, as I had mentioned earlier, the application must be emitting sound before it'll appear on the list of programs that you can add. However, if you know the exe file that it uses, you can add it to the list, preferably of a second instance of the plugin so you can vary its volume separately from all other sources in the scene(s) it's included in.
Since I do not use this app, I do not know the app's exe name.
