NOTE Studio 29.0

Two months after the last medium update, and four of the last major, we already have here a new version of this “broadcasting” software that is used to capture all kinds of images and sound from our computer, and not only that. OBS Studio 29.0 has arrived with new features, tweaks and bug fixes, although Linux users will still have to wait a little longer. Our version does not even appear in the release note nor on the official website of OBS Studio. Yes, it can be downloaded for 12 hours for Windows and macOS systems.

Among the novelties we find some such as the addition of the support for multimedia keys in LinuxAlthough, we remember, they have not yet uploaded this option. Support for HECV has also been improved, both the Intel encoder for Windows and for macOS, where support for Apple's ProRes has also been received.

Other new features in OBS Studio 29.0

In the list of news we also find things like the Replay Buffer memory limit has been set to 75% of RAM instead of 8GB, several improvements have been included in NVIDIA video and audio filters, Improved naming and saving of screenshot in Windows, also improved enabling of FFmpeg VA-API directly using Libva to check device capabilities, and various tweaks to UX and layout. accessibility. Noteworthy would be that audio should be captured automatically for most brands of cards that use the Video Capture Device, but that's something that only improves on Windows.

NOTE Studio 29.0 available for a few hours, but at the time I start writing this article they have not yet uploaded the version for Linux. It will arrive in the next few hours.
