Install OBS Studio on Fedora 27

Hello everyone, welcome to our Fedora Tutorial. Today we are going to install OBS Studio on Fedora 27. What is OBS Studio? If you are new to this software, OBS Studio is a free and open source software for video recording and video streaming. You might know Simple Screen Recorder, the popular screen recording application. This OBS Studio has similar feature to Simple Screen Recorder but with more features inside. You can stream and share your video (for example gaming video) to the world. 

OBS Studio Features:

  • High performance real time video/audio capturing and mixing, with unlimited scenes you can switch between seamlessly via custom transitions.
  • Intuitive audio mixer
  • Easy to use and to configure
  • Support multiple themes

Steps to install OBS Studio on Fedora 27

When this post is written, OBS Studio 20.0 is available. For Fedora users, we need to install and enable RPM Fusion first. Lets get started.

A. Install RPM Fusion on Fedora 27

dnf install$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

B. Install OBS Studio

After we configure RPM Fusion, we can start installing OBS Studio on Fedora 27 with the following command

dnf install obs-studio

Once installed, you may see the OBS Studio icon on your Application list. Click to run it. 

install obs studio on fedora 27

Possible Issues

In my case, OBS Studio is not working well. It shows a blank screen and cannot record the screen correctly. I am still working around to find what possible issue that cause all of these. It could be the Wayland-OBS incompatibility. We hope the future development will solve this issue. And I will update this post as soon as I found the solution. 

Thanks for reading this post. Cheers.
