    Well yeah because Wayland and Gnome are both freedesktop projects. It is kind of their responsibility until their technology becomes mainstream rather than X11.

    Its like the FreeBSD port was done by a FreeBSD developer. Makes sense right?

    Why would a FreeBSD or Haiku developer do a Wayland port? They don't care about Wayland.

        Yeah, I have to agree with kpedersen here, and I never do.

        The fact that a GNOME developer has had to go out of their way to get the support he needed/wanted is actually kind of a bad thing: the argument o be done here is that "if Wayland were so great and had such a huge user base, every project would port to it themselves".

        I say this as someone who uses Gnome/Wayland full-time. I appreciate (love, actually) Georges work, and have followed the 3-part merge request for months.

          It's pretty cool that OBS Studio is open source, and it is hugely popular among gamers and streamers. It is one of those popular open source software among Linux, LibreOffice, Firefox and GIMP.

            I haven't done a lot of video work, but I was impressed with OBS when I got into it for a YouTube I made on OpenMP. Then, a few months later, an update of something on my Ubuntu install had broken it. I haven't had the time to will to mess with it, but it can't seem to see that I have a graphics card anymore and complains as such. I might try out this update just in case it was an OBS issue. I'd love to get it working again!

              So is it using Pipewire?

                I agree, if I'm reading your comment correctly. In cases like OBS, Linux/Wayland is probably not even a statistical blip on their user target base. OBS is targeted at film people, bloggers, education (I've used it to record lectures), and other not-necessarily-technical fields and use cases. As as consequence I'd bet most of their users are Windows, then Mac, then Linux/X11 in that order of popularity. Internal developer resources go where there's both interest and need.

                  According to the changelog on github, yes. It is using pipewire:

                  > Added support for Wayland on Linux. This includes a new PipeWire capture source when using Wayland (for Ubuntu users, 20.10 or newer is required for PipeWire capture)

                    Wayland relies on Pipewire for capture. It's possible that they didn't feel Pipewire was ready yet or wasn't included in enough distributions for it to be worth it. The fact that a Gnome developer implemented it into OBS is irrelevant.
