Is good, recomended for linux mint users

The software is awesome, and the current flatpak indeed works with Linux Mint 21. There is an apt version and flatpak version in the software manager. The flatpak doesn't run quite as quickly as the apt version, but it still runs quickly and is much more feasible for developers to maintain for multiple distributions - so it makes sense as a delivery method (I encourage the reader to support flatpak where possible and have some consideration for open source developers). Great software - still a 5/5 for me.

The software is awesome, but the current flatpack doesn't work in Mint. So you have to go to the website and add a repo to get it working, kinda makes this software manager pointless. Looking forward to when developers stop using flatpack and snap, it's like if MS did away with DLL files and instead had massive bloated EXEs filling your drive. Makes no sense.

OBS is a great piece of software but the flatpak version isn't so great. It's slower and the windows are less responsive (idk why) and it also doesn't work with NVENC. I tried everything to get it work from recomipling and manually setting up ffmpeg but I still couldn't get NVENC to work. The non flatpak version is faster and NVENC worked out of the box.

Great software! i use it almost daily, works perfectly for basic and simple stuff but at the same time as every little setting and feature you could use, also works great for streaming!

An sich eine super Software zum Streamen und Aufnehmen. Ich habe aber das Repo des Herstellers angebunden, da dort die Software weitaus aktueller ist.

Good software. But this download is not kept up to date much. At the time of writing (2022-03-20) the most recent update is 27.2.2 while this download is at 27.0.1.

Очень мощный, быстрый и бесплатный софт для записи, или трансляции видео на различные платформы, как YouTube, Twich и другие. У новичков могут возникнуть трудности с использованием и настройкой, но в интернете есть множество гайдов и мануалов по его настройке.

Infelizmente depois de algumas atualizações do kernel no Mint 20 Cinnamon, está apresentando falhas pontuais como não obedecer os comandos do teclado algumas vezes. Por exemplo, não consigo ativar e desativar o microfone nem mesmo clicando no ícone dentro do OBS. Consigo gravar a tela, mas não grava o microfone de jeito nenhum.

the program shuts down immediately as you click 'apply' or 'ok' in the settings; there's no source: browser.
