OBS Studio Now Ready With Wayland Capture Support
The OBS Studio software for streaming and recording that is quite popular with game streamers is now set to see good Wayland support for its next release. Stavracas for a while has been working on allowing good and native Wayland support for OBS Studio with the last of that work being merged upstream today. Among the work involved was native Wayland integration, creating textures from DMA-BUF for more efficient screen capturing, and Wayland-compatible capturing by making use of PipeWire and Flatpak Portals.
Ultimately the goal is to make screen capturing better and more efficient on Wayland than X11, Georges noted, "All this Wayland, PipeWire, and portals code are only the first steps to make screencasting on Wayland better than on X11. There’s still a lot to do and fix, and contributions would be more than welcomed."
