Only use this release with OBS 22 or above!

Changes since 4.5.3

  • Fix for microstutter issues encountered by several users (courtesy of @loopy750)
  • Bugfix: the Dedicated Output filter used to output nothing if a Color Correction filter was placed on first position of a filter chain
  • Source: new "Latency" option.
    • Be careful: setting this to "Low" can cause microstutters. Use with caution!
  • Source and Output: native support for NV12 and I420 YUV pixel formats.
    • Previous versions of the plugin used to perform the conversion to NDI's native UYVY format, but now the NDI SDK supports these two formats natively, removing the need for any conversion performed by the plugin.
  • Linux + macOS bugfix: NDI Name text inputs for program and output were not visible
  • macOS enhancement: try to prevent App Nap from suspending background tasks
  • NDI SDK support updated to version 3.8
  • Catalan localization
  • NDI runtime version now shown at the bottom of the settings dialog (and printed in the current log)
  • Output: slightly improved memory allocation in the audio output code
  • Automated macOS builds now use Azure Pipelines instead of Travis CI

Known issues with these changes

  • The Dedicated Output filter ignores its position in the filter chain and outputs the post-filtering result

Changes since 4.5.1

  • Source: remove the "Default" value for the YUV range and colorspace fields. Default values for these fields are now Partial range with BT.709 colorspace

  • Preview Output: use the same YUV settings as the Main Output
  • Bugfix: Qt version mismatch on macOS
  • Preview Output Improvement: fix handling of scene preview change events to properly keep track of the current preview scene
