27.2.1 Hotfix Changes

  • Fixed an issue that triggered a full system freeze for some users. Made a legendary workaround to some sort of driver/kernel bug which was triggered by the browser source (I am really proud of this)
  • Improved performance of the updated Chromium build of browser source (I am also really proud of this)
  • Fixed an issue where some users with certain older Windows versions would not be able to stream at a very high bitrate
  • Fixed an issue where some cameras wouldn’t decode correctly on Linux
  • Fixed an issue where common in-program shortcuts stopped working sometimes (such as Ctrl-F to make a source fit to screen)
  • Fixed a bug on Windows 8.1 where desktop audio capture stopped working
  • Fixed SRT and RIST from crashing OBS when a URL isn’t set or when disabling a Media source with a RIST URL
  • Fixed a memory leak in PipeWire capture on Linux
  • Fixed an issue where the resize grip would break if you dragged it all the way to the top in the filters window
  • Updated AOM/SVT encoders again because there seems to be some new good changes
  • Hiding OBS from capture is now logged
  • Fixed an issue on macOS where FFmpeg dependency filenames were unnecessarily complex, breaking some third party plugins
  • Fixed browser plugin not loading if OBS launched from certain paths on macOS
