  • Fixed an issue where some users with certain older Windows versions would not be able to stream at a very high bitrate [R1CH]
  • Fixed an issue where some cameras wouldn’t decode correctly on Linux [kkartaltepe]
  • Fixed an issue where common in-program shortcuts stopped working sometimes (such as Ctrl-F to make a source fit to screen) [gxalpha/WizardCM]
  • Fixed a bug on Windows 8.1 where desktop audio capture stopped working [WizardCM]
  • Fixed SRT and RIST from crashing OBS when a URL isn’t set or when disabling a Media source with a RIST URL [pkv]
  • Fixed a memory leak in PipeWire capture on Linux [fzwoch]
  • Fixed an issue where the resize grip would break if you dragged it all the way to the top in the filters window [WizardCM]
  • Updated AOM/SVT encoders again because there seems to be some new good changes [Jim]
  • Hiding OBS from capture is now logged [WizardCM]
  • Fixed an issue on macOS where FFmpeg dependency filenames were unnecessarily complex, breaking some third party plugins [PatTheMav]
  • Fixed browser plugin not loading if OBS launched from certain paths on macOS [derrod]
