OBS Studio 20.1.3

New version available: OBS Studio 20.1.3

20.1.3 Hotfix Changes (Windows only)

  • Fixed a bug in 20.1.2 where the x264 plugin was still expecting the newer x264 library, and wouldn’t initialize properly (Note by Jim: a bug in my update script that slipped by my testing)
  • Reverted x264 version to the previous stable build due to AVX512 optimizations causing stability issues on some systems
  • Made a workaround for a potential crash that could happen with the game "Life is Feudal" when game capturing it

20.1.1 Hotfix Changes (Windows only)

  • Made a workaround for an issue with new AMD GPU drivers (ReLive 17.10+) that would prevent the AMD encoder from starting up

20.1 General Changes

  • Added the ability to hide/show items in the audio mixer via the mixer context menu
  • Added the ability to use replay buffer in advanced output mode (Note: cannot be used with the FFmpeg output)
  • Added the ability to monitor the audio of stingers via its properties
  • Added the ability to change the audio fade mode of stingers via its properties
  • Added hotkeys to control VLC source playback (play/pause/restart/stop/next/previous)
  • Added pulseaudio audio monitoring support on linux
  • Updated x264 and FFmpeg to their latest versions, with new performance optimizations for newer Intel processors
  • You can now bring up a context menu via right-clicking the mixer or items in the mixer
  • Fixed a bug where if you try to stop the stream while reconnecting, the program could freeze up
  • Fixed a bug where the window dimensions would not always restore properly from the last time the program was closed
  • Fixed an issue where the program would be milliseconds out of sync

  • Disabled v-sync preview rendering on mac to prevent it from having an impact on performance
