There was an official release of OBS Studio 28, in which the developers added support for Apple Silicon chips. Previously, the application was run using Rosetta 2 technology, which affected its performance.
In early August 2022, the OBS development team released a beta version of the app with native support for Apple Silicon chips. A month later, a full release was made available to all users.

In addition to support for Apple processors, developers have begun using ScreenCaptureKit on machines running macOS 12.5 and above, allowing for more productive screen captures. They've also improved the way they work with Apple's VT encoder.
The developers have added support for 10-bit HDR video for all platforms. The user interface is fully migrated to Qt 6, the obs-websocket 5.0 plugin is now included in the standard build, and on Windows there is support for background removal from Nvidia.
The update is available for download on the project website. Users of machines based on Apple Silicon chips were warned that to switch to the native version of the application you need to download the appropriate file. The developers also noted that not all third-party plugins support M1 and M2 processors. Therefore, you should carefully choose the version for your tasks.
