GStreamer OBS Studio plugin

An OBS Studio source plugin to feed GStreamer launch pipelines into OBS Studio.

This plugin has interesting use cases but may be difficult to understand and is clunky use if you are not familiar with GStreamer.

Experimental prebuilt 64-bit Windows DLL is available. You still require the GStreamer run-time to be installed.


This plugin makes use of the GStreamer launch pipeline descriptions. Please refer to the GStreamer documentation to understand what this means:

This plugins provides two media sinks named video and audio. These are the media sinks that hand over data to OBS Studio. So your pipeline should connect to these sinks.

An example pipeline:

videotestsrc is-live=true ! video/x-raw, framerate=30/1, width=960, height=540 ! video. audiotestsrc wave=ticks is-live=true ! audio/x-raw, channels=2, rate=44100 ! audio.

Another one:

uridecodebin uri=rtmp:// name=bin ! queue ! video. bin. ! queue ! audio.

If you don't understand what is happening in these lines please check the GStreamer documentation as mentioned above!
