Only use this release with OBS Studio v25 (v24 on macOS) or above!

Changes since 4.7.1

Features & Improvements

  • NDI 4.5 support (#416)
    • On macOS, you need to install the NDI 4.5 runtime manually! (download link below)
  • Spanish localization (thanks @COOLIGUAY in #357)

Bug fixes

  • Bugfix: The NDI Output Settings dialog wasn't always showing text input fields for the Program & Preview output names (#373)
  • Bugfix: NDI runtime download issues on Windows. The obs-ndi installer now downloads the runtime from a mirror I manage to prevent download errors that cause failed installs (#140)
  • A myriad of macOS bugfixes:
    • The plugin wasn't loading because of a problem with how macOS looks for plugin dependencies (#409)
    • With NDI 4.5 installed on the system, obs-ndi 4.7.1 would crash. This is now fixed with the addition of NDI 4.5 support.
    • The obs-ndi installer could fail to download the NDI runtime because of download server issues, or could fail to install it because it is not digitally signed. This step has been removed. macOS users now have to download & install the NDI 4.5 runtime separately (links provided below).
    • In addition to being digitally signed, the obs-ndi installer is now also notarized by Apple. This should eliminate "malicious software" prompts on Catalina.
