On Windows, you must reboot your computer to make a new or updated NDI Runtime installation effective


  • Manual install (64-bit only): Download libndi3_3.5.1-1_amd64.deb and obs-ndi_4.5.0-1_amd64.deb, and install them on your system.
  • PPA: not yet available

OS X/macOS (experimental)

Download and run obs-ndi-4.5.0.pkg. This will install both the plugin and the NDI 3.5 Runtime. If it doesn't install the NDI runtime, download it here.
Note: OS X may show you a security alert when launching the installer, preventing your from installing obs-ndi. If this happens, go to the "Security & Privacy" panel in OS X Settings and click "Open Anyway".
