the plugin is not working as expected, but if i restart obs, everything is fine. it was same since months with every update same. i think i will start using the build in option of obs.
OMG same... When it's not OBS fault, it's Windows fault.
I think the best thing to do is to use what works.
I don't think this will be fixed, the proper functioning of this plugin should not be questioned. :D

Do bear in mind that the plugin in OBS Studio also relies on the API in Windows 11 and newer versions of Windows 10. You will likely experience the same problem there.

I reiterate, there may be a problem with the API itself. In which case, only Microsoft can fix it because they created the API in the first place.

Now I can answer.
I have been using the internal obs plugin since 08/15 and no problems to report to date. I have records of +8 hours without any problem of distorted/shattered/crackling after a few hours
 
I have preliminarily tested the plugin under OBS Studio 30.0.0 Beta 3. It seems to work fine. Still likely susceptible to that issue that plagues this and the OBS-bundled plugin which is likely due to issues with Windows itself.

A bit bleated, but I don't know what you capture with the bundled OBS Studio plugin, but I tend to play games on-stream and I haven't had the best of luck with it, so I stick with WCA.

At least one of my VTuber friends isn't as lucky as you are. She's had to recapture a game that she's played for an extended period of time when the sound capture went wonky on her, and that's with the internal plugin.

All I can say is count yourself extremely lucky. It seems to be hit-or-miss out there, but again, I don't know what you capture with it.

Plugin doesn't capture audio in multichannel mode while OBS's native application audio capture beta does it. Plugin shows the soundbars in mixer but no capturing of sounds on any channel. Inb4 yes my PC has surround capability and the OBS's native app audio capture works, just wouldn't like to use it as plugin has the exe list.

I've also left message in github-issues of the plugins page.

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.

I solved... somehow, I did many things at the same time, I don't know which of them was the solution:

- Deleted x32 OBS installed plug ins C:\Program Files\obs-studio\obs-plugins\32bit --- restart
- Reinstalled win source --- restart
-Installed VBCABLE_Driver_Pack43 - restart - (I don't use it I just installeld)
- Uninstalled Droid cam (It was a virtual camera with virtual sound output )

After all this the "add executable " button appeared, as I said I don't know which one was the solution, but you can try each one
 
- Installed VBCABLE_Driver_Pack43 - restart - (I don't use it I just installeld)

In my case, I have all the VB Audio Cables installed anyway because it never hurts to have them (and I do use them here). You'll never know when you may need or want them.

That said, it's good to know that you managed to get the plugin to work. However, even so, you may still find a use for that VB Audio Cable. ;)
