OBS Studio 28 Released With Native Support for Apple Silicon

Posted September 1, 2022 at 1:39pm by iClarified
Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) Studio 28.0 has been released, bringing native support for Apple Silicon, HDR Video Encoding, integrated NVIDIA Background Removal, a new AMD encoder plugin, a new default theme, and more.

Previously, users had to rely on unofficial builds of OBS Studio for better performance on Macs with M-series chips.

With OBS 28, OBS now has native builds for Apple Silicon systems. This means that OBS will run more optimally and without x86 emulation. Unfortunately, an important caveat for this is that many third-party plugins may not yet be readily available for Apple users running native Apple Silicon builds. Users can still use x86 builds of OBS if they desire a wider selection of third-party plugins that are not yet available natively for Apple Silicon.

Specific improvements for Apple devices include:
● Support for the ScreenCaptureKit Framework on macOS 12.5+, including support for direct audio capture without requiring third-party solutions on macOS 13+ [Developer-Ecosystem-Engineering/PatTheMav/gxalpha]
● Support for CBR, CRF, and Simple Mode to the Apple VT encoder on Apple Silicon (Note: CBR requires macOS 13+) [Developer-Ecosystem-Engineering/gxalpha/MisutaaAsriel/PatTheMav]
● Improved macOS permissions flow on startup [gxalpha/PatTheMav/WizardCM]
