For those who might ask why libva-vdpau-driver was added to conflicts.

It is the only way at package level to prevent the user to have segfaults because of this driver. This will not be fixed on OBS side since this is not an OBS issue.

The driver is only loaded with Nvidia cards.

Try libva-nvidia-driver if you really need Nvidia decode through VAAPI.

This package have some dependencies with version check, it will allow you to rebuild the package only when your system is correctly updated. This feature is not enabled on Manjaro.

If you have any issue, please before commenting rebuild this package (a clean build) and try again to make sure it's not because of a library update.

Pamac has a messed up dependency checker, use another AUR helper for the first install.

This AUR package provide OBS with all the missing feature except Twitch, Restream and YouTube integrations.

More explaination here:

It provide any dependency needed for Wayland support.

I'm quite active on OBS discord server (don't PM me directly).

No, AMD devices relies on libva-mesa-driver for VAAPI.

libva-vdpau-driver is a dead driver causing segfault issues when it gets loaded. It was just meant to bridge NVIDIA decode feature with VPDAU to VAAPI.

And I repeat VDPAU is a decode only API, this D stands for decoder.

And it is in no way used by AMD, AMD open source stack relies directly on libva/VAAPI in Mesa.

Edit: @OzzyHelix, if you continue thinking VDPAU is also for encode, your messages will be ignored in the future.

can you please remove libva-vdpau-driver as a conflict it is required for vaapi hardware encoding on AMD so I can't use this package and my friends can't use this package

OzzyHelix commented on 2024-05-03 21:13 (UTC)

what I mean is I can use these flags to do stuff with VAAPI

tytan652 commented on 2024-05-03 10:36 (UTC)

ffmpeg-obs and even ffmpeg provides VAAPI and AMF support (two different API) and you are likely only using VAAPI (AMF mainly relies on AMD proprietary driver).

OzzyHelix commented on 2024-05-03 08:59 (UTC)

its fine I can use the obs-studio-liberty and ffmpeg-amd-full and have VAAPI indirectly work with AMF through FFMPEG. I apologize if I came off as unprofessional and rude yesterday. I was having a bad day yesterday and thought that your package was the only one that provided the browser plugin and that misunderstanding had me very angry at the time.

libva-vdpau-driver does not even provide encode, VDPAU is a decode-only API and mainly for NVIDIA, Intel and AMD (Mesa) use VAAPI directly.

OzzyHelix commented on 2024-05-02 23:35 (UTC)

look I am just frustrated I was maintaining a patch of the package obs-studio-amf and had to stop because I was in over my head. I have programs that depend on libva-vdpau-driver for VAAPI encoding on my 7800 XT from AMD and now that I have to use OBS normally again its just frustrating having the packages I need remove a dependency that removes the VAAPI hardware encoding for my other programs

OzzyHelix commented on 2024-05-02 23:23 (UTC)

libva-vdpau-driver is needed for hardware decoding on AMD adding it as a conflict makes it so I can't use this package sorry

Thanks for the report @thecookie94

Currently the version being reported by obs itself is broken. Can be fixed by changing line 163 to say sed -i "s|OBS_VERSION =|OBS_VERSION = \"$pkgver-browser-$pkgrel\"; //|" build/libobs/obsversion.c instead (ie removing the underscore in front of pkgver). With that changed OBS reports itself to be version 30.1.2-browser-1
