Title: OBS 26.1.0 packages available
Post by: pocock on December 29, 2020, 08:21:22 am

This is now available for anybody else to try, I backported the latest version, 26.1.0

As described in the thread about Domoticz (https://forums.raptorcs.com/index.php/topic,242.0/topicseen.html), backports like this are published in the Debify repository.  Before you can install them with apt, you need to run this command once to enable the repository and authentication key:

Code: [Select]
$ wget -O - http://apt.debify.org/add-apt-debify | bash

After you have added the Debify repository and key, you can install OBS with this command (if you are using Debian 10 / buster):

Code: [Select]
sudo apt update
sudo apt install -t debify-buster-backports obs-studio

This OBS has been built using the updated ffmpeg packages that are also distributed through the same repository (https://forums.raptorcs.com/index.php/topic,243.0.html) so you may get some performance benefits and extra features not available in the standard ffmpeg on Debian 10.

I've updated the OBS package to include the fix for this bug (http://), so it will work with v4l2-loopback (https://github.com/umlaeute/v4l2loopback)

To use the v4l2-loopback, you install it like this:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt install v4l2loopback-dkms v4l2loopback-utils

and before using OBS, you need to load the module like this:

Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe v4l2loopback exclusive_caps=1

Please note this DKMS kernel module is for the 4.19 kernel.  There is an update to make it work with 5.x kernels but it needs to be backported.  I'll probably do that later in the week, it will be essential for those who want to use the packages of the 5.9 kernel for 4k page size (https://forums.raptorcs.com/index.php/topic,247.0.html)
