OBS Studio 26.1 Released
Published on December 15, 2020 by Ben Torell

OBS Studio 26.1 is now out! This minor release adds virtual camera functionality to both macOS and Linux, matching the version introduced on Windows in version 26.0. It also includes a new feature for Twitch broadcasters, allowing you to send a second audio track with your livestream that gets saved to your VOD instead of the audio that is streamed. We’ve also updated several of our underlying dependencies which brings a myriad of bug fixes. Notably, we’ve updated Qt, our UI framework, which fixes a variety of issues including accessibility bugs and strange behavior on high-DPI displays.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you use the obs-websocket plugin or the StreamFX plugin, please ensure that you have the most up-to-date version of those plugins, or else OBS may not start after this update due to the Qt upgrade. Also, if you use the Decklink plugin, be sure that you have updated to version 11.6+ of Blackmagic Desktop Video.
