We are investigating issues if cef-minimal is installed on the system while obs-linuxbrowser is being used. This is however not an issue with the AUR package.

Also, this package is not outdated. It might contain bugs, but as I wan't yet able to fix them, the newest version is still 0.6.1.

If I put all the files from bin/64bit/ in /usr/lib/obs-plugins/ I am able to start it, so I did some debugging with strace and I can see it's looking for /usr/lib/o/data/cef.pak...
It's a bug with the plugin, it cuts the path at a fixed number of chars, I'm submitting an issue on its Github.

@Marte2007: When installing the plugin to global directories (bin/64bit/* to /usr/lib/obs-plugins/ and data/* to /usr/share/obs/obs-plugins) the plugin stops working. The plugin always searches for files that it can't find. I have even tried to install the contents of both bin/64bit/* and data/* to share... (where the additional files should be placed) but it's also not working. Other file positions (of course exept of removing the plugin .so out of /usr/lib/obs-plugins/) even prevent OBS from starting.

Tell me if you have figured out how to make it work and I'll update the package as soon as I can.


wget and git have been removed.

The plugin gets installed to the user's home directory ($HOME/.config/obs-studio/plugins) while it should install to /usr/lib/obs-plugins/ and /usr/share/obs/obs-plugins/.
Also, since it is not building anything but just downloading and installing the binary release from Github, the dependency on git is not needed.
