Packaged for Arch Linux users
If you cannot install from the AUR you're gonna have to look for alternatives or compile / install them yourself.
For NVIDIA users, NvFBC is available with some driver patching. NvFBC is a feature like NVENC, except that it captures your screen directly from the framebuffer very efficiently.
Overall, this works very well for high FPS recording, and is on a par with Windows' default Display Capture source, if not better.
However, unfortunately, this has some issues:
- The NvFBC plugin is currently incompatible with OBS 28+
- Maybe this could be fixed in the future
- You need to be on the proprietary NVIDIA drivers
- You need to use X.Org (not Wayland)
- See this with
- See this with
nvidia-utils-nvlaxfrom the AUR, which will replace
nvidia-utilswith a patched version. It does 2 patches, all automatically:
- NVENC patch: removes restriction on maximum number of simultaneous NVENC video encoding sessions imposed by Nvidia to consumer-grade GPUs
- NvFBC patch (required): allows to use NvFBC on consumer-grade GPUs
