OBS Studio is software designed for capturing, compositing, encoding, recording, and streaming video content, efficiently. From version 23.0.0 onwards, we have added support for nvenc and VAAPI hardware accelerated GPU encoding to the snap.
It's distributed under the GNU General Public License v2 - see the accompanying COPYING file for more details.
To access content on external storage, manually connect to the removable-media plug:-
sudo snap connect obs-studio:removable-media
To access the webcam:-
sudo snap connect obs-studio:camera
The webcam needs to be manually connected via the command above
Newer releases of OBS have an issue when using nvenc where some textures in game appear black / blank. An older build of OBS has been built and pushed to the candidate channel as a temporary workaround.
To install the older 21.0.2 release of OBS-Studio, either install from the candidate channel.
snap install obs-studio --candidate
Or, if you already have the snap installed, refresh to the candidate channel.
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap can be installed from the command line on openSUSE Leap 42.3, Leap 15 and Tumbleweed.
You need first add the snappy repository from the terminal. Leap 15 users, for example, can do this with the following command:
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.0 for either openSUSE_Leap_42.3 or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
Snap can now be installed with the following:
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
