OBS Studio on Fedora 22

The Linux version of obs-studio is still under development and contains many bugs, but if you’re feeling like you absolutely have to have this wonderful piece of software, you can install it through Tech-3’s Fedora repository.

There are two requirements that must be met first.

Both ffmpeg and x264 are available through the rpmfusion-free repository, so it’s a requirement to install those:

Code | Analyze
sudo rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-22.noarch.rpm

Now we need to import the public GPG key that is used to sign all the packages in the Tech-3 Repo:

Code | Analyze
sudo rpm --import http://repo.tech-3.net/Fedora/TECH3-GPG-KEY.public

Now we can install obs-studio:

Code | Analyze
sudo wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/tech-3.repo http://repo.tech-3.net/Fedora/tech-3.repo
sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install obs-studio

This installs OBS Studio to your system. You can run OBS from either the menu (Its under Sound and VIdeo category) or from command line ‘obs’ (without quotes of course).

If you run into problems, or the package appears to be broken for Fedora 22, please contact myself at joe@tech-3.net and I’ll see if it’s a problem with the build I did.

The packages will be updated on the release frequency that the main branch is on.

Currently, I am providing both 32-bit and 64-bit packages and source RPMs. I do not guarantee the source rpms will install correctly tho. They are not needed for the operation of OBS-STUDIO, but needed for building plugins against it.

If you need specific plugins built, I can set up a repo that provides them built against these RPMs.
