OBS Multiplatform 0.12.0 changelog

General Changes:

  • Added pre-configured recording quality presets to simple output mode for easy recording-specific configuration
  • Added stream delay feature (in advanced settings). If spontaneously disconnected during a delayed stream, it will preserve the point of disconnection (optional, on by default), and start off where it left off at the cost of increasing delay until reconnected.
  • Added automatic data file backup as well as methods to prevent user data file corruption due to things such as program crash, system crash, or otherwise
  • Added the ability to duplicate a scene (added to the right-click context menu)
  • Added the ability to update services and servers on the fly remotely (this way we can keep services up to date for all users immediately)
  • Added support for Blackmagic Intensity Pro 4k to the blackmagic source
  • Added a profiler to the back-end to help to help determine potential system bottlenecks
  • Changed the FFmpeg output in advanced output mode to allow the use of generated filenames rather than overwriting the same file over and over again
  • Improved CoreAudio AAC encoder logging
  • Fixed a bug with the properties window where the window would always start off at the smallest size
  • Fixed a bug with the media source where streams and certain files would not play audio
  • Fixed a bug where adding certain audio sync offsets could cause the program to crash

Linux specific changes:

  • Window capture (xcomposite) will now automatically try to reacquire the window it was set to capture but may have been closed by the user
