Installing OBS on your Raspberry Pi

Step 1. Start the process of installing the obs source code

  1. Follow instructions on steps for obs make sure to use sudo command if it says permission denied.
  2. Once you get to making the directories for “obs-studio” and a directory for for “build” you will receive a error and that's ok now to the next steps
  3. Now you need to install cmake, H264 and ffmpeg

Step 2. Install Cmake

  1. The directions on the site say to install it into the main directory but I prefer installing it in the build folder, try installing to the home directory but if you run into issues install it into the build directory too.
  2. You’ll install snap to install CMake

Step 3. Install H264 and FFmpeg source code from git

  1. Again remember to use the “sudo” command if there is permission denied to Install H264 in the “build” directory that was created.
    2. Again remember to use the “sudo” command if there is permission denied to install ffmpeg in the “build” directory that was created.

Step 4. Launch OBS (Article Below)

  1. cd into “obs-studio” then “build” and run the launch commands again
  2. You’ll run the launch commands again that you initiated in the first step to run the environment to launch OBS on your Raspbery Pi.
