Note for Windows Users: Due to changes to how Display Capture on Windows identifies and saves monitors you will need to re-select your display for any existing capture sources. However, the changes also mean that displays will no longer potentially switch if anything has been unplugged or changed.
Welcome to OBS Studio 29! This release comes with many new encoder updates and features, all of which can be found in the release notes, but we've highlighted a few here.
This release brings many new additional encoders to Windows and macOS. On Windows, we now support AV1 for AMD RX7000 series GPUs, and AV1/HEVC for supported Intel GPUs. On macOS, HEVC and ProRes are now supported.
Two new audio filters have been added! An upward compressor, which helps normalize volume from being too quiet, and a 3-band EQ for making simple adjustments to the levels of your audio. These tools should help people further fine-tune their audio setups.
There are also several smaller updates and QOL improvements, such as media key support for Linux, less restrictive replay buffer limits, muting of browser docks, dynamic bitrate recovery improvements, and more. Check the release notes linked above for the full list!
Video Capture Device sources have been updated to support frame rates above 60 FPS and to automatically set up the audio input for many devices that previously required manual configuration. Special thanks to EposVox for testing and documenting tons of devices for us!
