The first beta release of the forthcoming OBS Studio 30 screencasting software is now available for testing.

OBS Studio 30 will drop support for Qt 5 and FFmpeg versions prior to 4.4. OBS Studio 30 is also already doing away with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS support.

New with OBS Studio 30 Beta is adding Intel Quick Sync Video (QSV) support on Linux, WHIP/WebRTC output, a redesigned status bar, a shader cache to reduce the start-up time on Windows, 10-bit capture support for Decklink hardware along with HDR playback support, and a variety of other enhancements.
