Streamlabs OBS for Linux

I have noticed quite a few people in the streaming community using Linux while streaming. They use normal OBS studio; however, Streamlabs is a much nicer / easier tool to use. It is not supported on Linux distros yet. We need it.

    Linux is a more stable and less resource intensive system that many gamers have been migrating towards. OBS is easily obtained but streamlabs offers more interface options.

    As a primarily Linux user, I also would love to have Streamlabs available for Linux. I find it much more reliable and easier to understand than other OS's, and would greatly prefer to switch up from the stock OBS.

    +3! I and three of my friends would also like to see streamlabs + OBS on Linux. This will be one of the best programs for Linux

    I too would like SLOBS for Linux.

    I've got streamlabels working just fine with Wine, but, having it native would be nice.

    Have not tried SLOBS with wine yet. (saving that test for my vacation time)  :)

    (have a shared SSD for the 2 OS, and use that so streamlabels uses the same files on both sides,

    would be nice to have that for all the OBS settings too. Well, the added things, game window etc are diff, but the chat/alerts etc)

    OBS is the primary broadcast tool for linux, so the integration would be very nice.

    I see the Mac version is planned, so if you get that going, it's not much of a stretch from there to do a linux version I would think.

    Voted! With Steam Play coming out soon, non-Linux games will be available for the OS, and games like Overwatch are available through Lutris and DXVK. Having such a light OS for streaming games would be a boon to performance going forward, and I refuse to use OBS Studio in place of Streamlabs, which has far fewer problems.

    I was looking around planned ideas and there are so many with less votes than this. At this point is save to say they are just ignoring the linux users all together.

    I've used OBS on Linux for many years and recently fired up windoze just to checkout slobs, They did a nice polish on OBS with nice templates. It would be nice to see I Linux version, but I won't hold my breath. The only reason I can see for the hold up is there must be a desire to make portions of it proprietary, which is much more problematic on Linux. A problem DOCKER is intended to fix.

     

    MAKE A SLOB DOCKER PKG GUYS. EASY PEASY!

    Agreed, i would also like a proper linux build of this.

    It's sad that nothing has been said on this topic, I see threads with less than 10 up votes be recognized. I feel that is only because of the fact NPC's would prefer MacOS support over Linux master race.

    P.S Thanks for supporting this suggestion guys :) peace.

    I have to throw my vote to this as well, because of the lack of support, when I go mobile I use OBS straight on my laptop to handle streaming instead of SLOBS and I'd prefer a consistent environment across my PC platforms.

    My setup is cross platform, with Win10 for gaming and Linux for broadcasting. I'd love to use streamlabs obs rather than stock obs. I could of course use Windows on both machines, but I don't wanna xD

    I use Linux Exclusivly now even for gaming, Proton kicks butt and I no longer own a single title that does not run via steam play, even got Fallout 4 to run butter smooth without any sound issues (Still crashes sometimes but it did that anyway because bethesda.)

    Any reason what hinders a linux release? whats not working on linux?

  • gameprogram commented

    I think Linux is the perfect platform for streaming, it is infinitely more stable than either Windows or Mac OS. I have streamed on both. Windows has nightmare updates, and all this awful stuff you have to deal with. Mac is better but you simply cannot use hardware encoding in OBS on a Mac. It does not work. (The NVEnc option, and no Radeon equivalent exists)..

    In Linux OBS is rock solid and the NVEnc option is there if you have an NVidia videocard, and everything is natively supported with the exception of Elgato software / hardware, but Magewell is much better anyway.

    This would be great if you brought it to Linux especially because of the chat support, because of Facebook Gaming especially., and there is no reason not to bring it to Linux.

    All of your products are written in Electron which is easy to deploy for all OS's and Streamlabs OBS is the same, it's written in Electron, wrapping OBS and OBS is available for Linux. This really isn't a difficult thing to do. Every other software written in Electron (Slack, Discord, etc.) is available for all the platforms, including Linux.

  • eric_van_fandenfart commented
    22 Mar 20:03

    I can say it works with wine. Still it takes some effort. .netframework is needed. At least on my V-Server not all GUIs work so user login is done on a windows machine and then cloned to the server.

    Windows has become less stable with new releases and "security" updates (which have crashed my own and several friends' computers). I don't have time to re-install every other weekend, so I finally went to Linux, but now I'm restricted by the applications I can run, Streamlabs being one of them. The community needs this.

  • Aziedearest commented
    21 May 05:18

    Sad to say, they will probably only support Windows and MacOS.. I as a dual booter use both windows 10 and my preferred distribution. I find myself using Linux more and more everyday as features like Steam Play and updates to Wine and more companies making there software and games simply run native.  This being said I'd really like to see SLOBS running on Linux. Heck, it does not even need to be open source, I'd be cool with a proprietary version. I would just like to see SLOBS come to Linux so I would not have to use windows every-time I wanna stream with it.
