OBS Studio 17.0.0

@jp9000 jp9000 released this Dec 25, 2016 · 37 commits to master since this release

General Changes:

  • Added a replay buffer feature. The replay buffer is available in just simple output mode (for now, will add it to advanced output mode later), and allows the user to create snapshot recordings (via hotkey) of a specific amount of time prior to triggering the hotkey.
  • Added saturation and hue shift to color correction filter
  • Added import/export options for scene collections and profiles
  • Added the ability to copy and paste scene item transforms
  • Added options to the output timer tool to start the output timers every time recording/streaming is started
  • Increased maximum number of possible audio tracks to 6 (up from 4), allowing more advanced audio splitting
  • Fixed a bug where semi-transparent images would not look right when filters were applied
  • Fixed a bug where Y800 (grayscale) video devices would come out as red
  • Fixed a freeze when reordering filters

Windows Changes:

  • Added ability to capture windows store games (UWP programs)
  • Added an experimental captions tool that uses Microsoft's speech-to-text to generate captions which can be displayed on stream when enabled (via closed caption options on the video player), generated via a selected audio source. Note that captions may not be accurate, and the tool may not work with many languages (hence why it's labeled experimental).
  • Fixed an issue where some DirectX 12 games wouldn't capture properly, or would capture at a poor framerate
  • Fixed a bug where GDI+ text sources would not look right when filters were applied
  • Fixed a bug where QSV wouldn't be usable on windows 7 with certain QSV-capable CPUs
  • Fixed AMD Encoder compatibility with ReLive driver (16.12.1 and newer)
  • Fixed multi-gpu support for AMD Encoder, the encoder is also no longer listed if no supported GPU is found
  • The installer now creates a 64bit desktop link by default on 64bit versions of windows

Linux Changes:

  • Fixed a X11-related memory leak in certain cases (causing memory to slowly continue to allocate memory until exhausted)

OBS Studio 0.16.5

@jp9000 jp9000 released this Nov 8, 2016 · 197 commits to master since this release

0.16.5 Windows Hotfix Changes:

  • Fixed a crash that occurs with active window capture sources when the windows 10 AU driver issue occurs and the graphics subsystem rebuilds.

0.16.4 Windows Hotfix Changes:

  • Reverted the "Improved UI appearance on high-DPI displays" change because it was apparently making the window far too large on some displays.
  • Fixed DLL issues with the AMD AMF encoder

0.16.3 Windows Hotfix Changes:

  • Added a workaround for a graphics driver issue occurring on Windows 10 Anniversary Update (1607) that would cause the program to appear to freeze and stop streaming/recording.
    • With this workaround, when the issue occurs, the D3D11 graphics subsystem now fully releases and then rebuilds all Direct3D references (basically restarts the graphics subsystem and reloads all data) to allow the program to continue working rather than freeze/crash.
    • Note that when it occurs while streaming or recording, a few frames may display as green in the encoded output.
  • Added support for capturing DirectX 12 games with game capture.
  • Added an output timer tool to the tools menu which allows you to schedule the stream or recording to stop after a specific amount of time.
  • Added support for dropping text files on to OBS to create a text source.
  • Added a splitter to the properties window so you can now adjust the bottom/top panes.
  • Updated AMD AMF encoder to latest version. The options have been modified to improve ease of use.
  • Improved UI appearance on high-DPI displays.

OBS Studio 0.16.2

@jp9000 jp9000 released this Sep 29, 2016 · 306 commits to master since this release

0.16.2 Hotfix Changes:

  • Added a Gradient feature to the GDI+ text source (not fully localized yet however)
  • Fixed an NVENC crash that could happen occasionally
  • Fixed a few minor issues with AMD encoder presets
  • Once again, fixed a bug where the window's position would reset on startup (hopefully)

0.16.1 Hotfix Changes:

  • Fixed a bug where the main window's position/size wouldn't save on exit
  • Fixed a bug where files under 3 bytes wouldn't be read by text sources
  • Changed text source file change update interval to one second

0.16.0 General Changes:

  • Added a automatic scene switcher via the tools menu on windows/mac (and linux eventually) that can switch scenes based upon what program/window is currently in focus on the system. More features to be added in future versions. On macs, you can only select applications, not windows. Note that you can also use regex to match a window name.
  • Added a system tray icon, with the ability to control the program via the system tray, and the ability to hide to system tray.
  • Added the ability to drag and drop image/video files in to the program to create new sources on the fly (note that on windows this may not work properly if the program is running as administrator, the source being dragged from may also need to be run as administrator)
  • Added an FPS indicator to the status bar, mostly used to diagnose whether a source in the scene is causing rendering to lag.
  • Added a "b-frames" option to the NVENC encoder, and set the default to 2. Also fixes an issue where b-frames weren't being used by default, which would impact video quality.
  • Added a front-end API for developers
  • Fixed an issue where frames wouldn't drop under certain circumstances and become more delayed than expected.
  • Fixed an issue where the program couldn't connect to certain types of custom servers.
  • Fixed a bug where NVENC H.264 profile wouldn't be set.
  • Fixed a bug with the browser source that would cause it to sometimes freeze under certain circumstances (especially changing settings, deleting the source, starting the program, or shutting down the program).
  • Fixed a bug where URLs wouldn't work with the VLC video source.
  • Fixed a bug where hidden sources used by the slideshow source would show up in the "existing source" list when adding a new image.
  • Streams will now always stop after a maximum of 30 seconds regardless of buffering (though buffering should no longer happen)
  • You can now click "Stopping Stream..." or "Stopping Recording..." to force them to stop if they are stuck in a "stopping" state for whatever reason (typically streaming, caused by buffering such as with the aforementioned frame drop issue)

0.16.0 Windows-specific Changes:

  • Added an AMD H.264 encoder for AMD video cards on windows (also pre-configured settings available in simple output mode). Note that this plugin should still be considered an early/experimental build; please report issues on the plugin's repository here: https://github.com/Xaymar/OBS-AMD-Advanced-Media-Framework
  • Added an improved text source with many more features and better drawing language support, and deprecated the old text source. Any lingering text sources you have saved will still use the old source, so if you want to use the new text source you'll have to create a new text source for them. A new text source is also in the works for mac/linux.
  • Added a tooltip to the "use buffering" property in the video device capture source properties that explains its function.
  • Game capture should now no longer require a hotfixes every time windows updates and changes D3D9 libraries.

0.16.0 Linux-specific Changes:

  • Added the ability to specify a custom audio device when using the ALSA audio capture source.
  • Fixed a design flaw with the pulseaudio capture where the source would have no properties if the device was unplugged since last time the program was opened.

0.15.4 Hotfix changes (windows):

  • Fixed a crash in game capture when going from window mode to hotkey mode

0.15.3 Changes:

  • Added a noise suppression audio filter (using speexdsp)
  • Added "Luma Wipe" transition (by HomeWorld)
  • Added the ability to lock the preview
  • Added all supported file types to VLC video source when browsing
  • Added the ability to add URLs to VLC video source
  • Added "Bind to IP" network option in advanced settings allowing users to specify which network adapter/address to stream from
  • Fixed an issue with VLC video source where media with more than two audio channels wouldn't be downmixed to stereo properly
  • Cleaned up log file readability significantly (still more work to be done, but it's a start)
  • Limited reconnect timeout (exponential backoff) to 15 minute intervals max. Fixes an issue where reconnect timeout could have intervals of days if it kept reconnecting unattended

0.15.3 Windows-specific Changes:

  • Once again fixed game capture performance issues with Direct3D 9.0c games on yet another windows 10 update. (In case anyone is wondering why this happens, this has to be done for every time Microsoft modifies D3D9. We may be able to find a better way to do this in the future)
  • Added game capture hotkey feature. To use, set it to hotkey mode in game capture properties, and set a hotkey for it in the hotkey section of settings like all other hotkeys. There are hotkeys for both capturing a window and for deactivating capture
  • Fixed a bug where AAC encoded with windows media foundation on windows 8 and above wouldn't play back in certain programs properly

0.15.3 Linux-specific Changes:

  • Fixed a display issue with projectors on certain window managers
