How To Stream Pre-Recorded Videos On Twitch
There are tons of screen recorders available for Linux. But when it comes to supporting Wayland , almost all of them do not work. This is problematic because many new distribution releases are switching to Wayland display manager by default once again. And if something as basic as a screen recorder does not work, it leaves a bad experience. There is another tool called Kooha but it keeps on displaying a timer on the screen.
Switching between Xorg and Wayland just for screen recording is not very convenient. It is already included in Ubuntu For Fedora, Arch and other distributions, please check your package manager or unofficial repositories for installing the latest version of OBS Studio. Step 2: Check if Wayland capture is working Please make sure that you are using Wayland. Now start OBS Studio and go through all the stuff it shows on the first run.
I am not going to show that. The main step is to add Pipewire as a screen capture source. Do you see PipeWire option in the screen sources? If the answer is no, quit OBS Studio. This is normal. There is a fix for that. Ignore them. Try to add screen capture once again. You should see the PipeWire option now. Select PipeWire as the source and then it asks you to choose a display screen. Select it and click on the Share button. Now it should show your screen recursively infinite number of times.
If you see that, you could start recording the screen in Wayland now. Step 3: Make changes permanent That was good. You just verified that you can record your screen on Wayland. But setting the environment variable and starting OBS from the terminal each time is not convenient.
Now OBS will automatically start using this parameter and you can use it to record your screen in Wayland. If you notice some applications stopped working after this change, revert it please. I hope you find this quick tip helpful. If you still have questions or suggestions, please let me know in the comment section.
