win-capture-audio v2.2.3-beta

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

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.

If anyone else seeing this has advice I'd be happy to hear it.

Cheers

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

Win 10
 
I have only tested this with beta 1, but I can say this:

It works with 28 as distributed for 27.x.y.

Hell, of all the plugins I use with 27.2.4, this is the only plugin that ACTUALLY WORKED. I fully expected it to NOT WORK AT ALL.

In fact, win-capture-audio in its current state is much more advanced than what's bundled with OBS Studio 28. I would actually install over what OBS has because it allows you to capture stuff that the bundled plugin, whose win-capture-audio level of functionality is about the same as 2.0.0-beta3, won't. That's because win-capture-audio 2.0.0-beta3 and OBS Studio's bundled plugin both rely on looking for processes with windows on-screen. Win-capture-audio does not require the program have a window; it just requires it to emit sound.

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.

Win 10

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.

UPDATE: As it turns out, both plugins will coexist with each other.

That said, I'll still use the win-capture-audio plugin until such a time as when the OBS Studio default plugin is as advanced in development and stability that win-capture-audio is in its present state.

OBS 27.2.4 (64bit)
Windows 10 Pro 64bit 21H1
OS19043.1889 , Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4180.0

The plugin is working properly in any other sound sources ...Spotify , browsers , games ... it's amazing. But, I use Xbox game bar (win+g) to chat in parties with my friends on xbox , daily , it's our sacred routine in Twitch lives. But no sound is captured by the plugin when I try to capture it from gamebar. None

The only way to capture the audio from gamebar is the default "desktop audio" sound track from the OBS. But it is mixed with all the other sounds, and that's the reason I tried this plugin, to split it.

Any idea ? Anyway thanks for the help

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 ?

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.

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.

Hey I'm trying to setup my audio using this plugin. I've made it to where Discord, games, and headset can be separate audio sources through the applications, but when I try to record. It either chooses to record the game audio and not my headset or the other way around. It is getting both sources on the meter but the recording picks and chooses between game or headset for audio everything. Anyone have an idea what it could be? I already tried turning off device exclusivity for headset to see if that would work and same problem still.

This is great, but for some reason the Application Audio Output Capture is significantly quieter than what Desktop Audio captures for me. For comparing they're both at 0.0db, and I don't have any filters or anything on either of them. Is there some "reason" for this, or is it kinda just how it is?

Hey,
I have tried using Win Capture Audio a couple Months ago to seperate my audio layers like game sound, discord, firefox for music etc. but the audio stuttered from time to time.
I couldnt get a fix for that so I installed voicemeeter and figured it all out and it worked.

Now I thought the new OBS 28 feature would let me seperate my tracks without any other programs and I tried it out, but it´s stuttering, too.

So my question is, does this come with the open apps it grabs the sound from?
Win Capture Audio does the same as I remember, you choose an open window to grad the sound from.

What could cause this? I really would like to get rid of voicemeeter

The Plug-in recognizes the GameBar.exe application but does not capture the audio.

The plugin used to work for me but after doing a clean install of windows 10 and trying to set it up again it wont work, everything is up to date to the latest version.

The problem is it recognizes the executable, and it adds the bar to the list of tracks but no audio is being captured.

The only difference im finding is that for other people in the window (of the picture I attached) it would only say Spotify.exe while mine is in brackets followed by the music that spotify is playing. (same for other applications like chrome has the tab name instead of just "Chrome.exe", and discord will show the channel name instead of just "Discord.exe") No idea why its different.

OBS version: 28.0.3 (64 bit)
Windows: Windows 10 Pro, Version 20H2, OS build 19042.631
