    This sounds like a difficult application to get working on Wayland because it needs to be able to find what other windows/applications are running, and then sneak on them so it can live stream those, and Wayland prevents applications from spying on other applications.
    Also you might want to have some key bindings to control OBS Studio while using other applications, and Wayland doesn't allow applications to listen for keypresses in other applications.
    It's actually not that tricky - it just has to use the right APIs from the compositor instead of spying. A plugin for that has been around for a while from the same programmer (feaneron) and he uses it for his livestreams. Not sure about the global hotkey situation, maybe still needs a proper solution.

    All credit goes to the Gnome-Shell/Mutter maintainer who did the code work. (Not employed by Red Hat)
