Any idea why my compile is failing?

No matter what I do paru tells me that I need to upgrade this application. Should I not be installing this with yay/paru? Is the maintainer going to update this soon?

I don't know if you already know this.

But since obs-studio use luajit (~lua5.1) and VLC is compiled with lua5.2 or later.

The use of OBS VLC sources will make OBS crash because of the difference between lua versions.

I created vlc-luajit to provide a VLC package which not make crash OBS.

It could be a good idea to replace at least vlc optional dependency with vlc-luajit to try to provide a better experience to users.

Please add pipewire-media-session as an optional dependency. It is required for PipeWire capture to work in OBS Studio.

pipewire screen capture doesn't work for me. As suggested by @Koffiepoeder I've enabled PIPEWIRE support in the PKGBUILD. I created an issue at

OBS upstream includes support for globally installed ftl-sdk. I also packaged that and created an obs-studio-ftl package which is obs-studio stable with ftl-sdk support.

As @HurricanePootis mentioned, native pipewire recording was added to obs since version 27.0 (see It seems to me however that this is not enabled by default. To enable this functionality you can add -DENABLE_PIPEWIRE=ON to the build() step in the PKGBUILD (and run obs in wayland mode, see bottom of my post). For me this resolved the earlier requirement for obs-xdg-portal-git on my wayland/pipewire machine for screen recording (a package which doesn't compile for this version anyway, i.e. see my issue @

build() {
  cd $pkgname

  mkdir -p build; cd build

  cmake \
    -DCEF_ROOT_DIR="/opt/cef" \
    -DENABLE_PIPEWIRE=ON .. # <--------- add before '..'


After installing this way, to get obs to run in native wayland mode, you also need to install qt5-wayland and finally run obs with the QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland variable set.

@wuestengecko ah, ok.. i forgot i had a custom ffmpeg.. thank you

@Psilovybin All of these have received soname bumps. You either have a partially upgraded system or need to recompile your custom ffmpeg package (which is what provides
