OBS Studio 27.2 Beta Brings SVT-AV1 Support, Official Flatpak Support
First up, today's OBS Studio 27.2 Beta 1 release delivers on official Flatpak support for Linux! OBS Studio can now be properly Flatpak'ed for app sandboxing and distribution thanks to the work of well known GNOME developer Georges Stavracas.
On the Linux front there is also now hotkey support when running OBS on Wayland, various audio fixes for Linux, and a possible Linux crash fix too.
OBS Studio 27.2 Beta 1 also adds experimental support for the AOM-AV1 and SVT-AV1 open-source AV1 video encoders. These CPU-based encoders should work out fine with powerful enough systems for carrying out real-time encoding -- see our SVT-AV1 benchmarks and aom-av1 benchmarks for more guidance.
This next OBS Studio release also adds support around AJA sources/devices, a hotkey filter search, support for the RIST protocol, and a variety of other improvements.
