By default OBS comes with some plugins installed. You can check those out using the Plugins button in the OBS Interface:

How to install a Plugin

On the OBS forum you can already find different kinds of plugins. These normally come in 2 different forms. Either a packaged file (split into a 32bit and 64bit version) or a direct download DLL file (in most cases also available in 32bit or 64bit flavour).

  1. First check which version of OBS you are using. (32bit or 64bit is noted in the Window title)
  2. Download the plugin for your OBS bit version
  3. If its a zip/rar/7z file, extract it completely and with all sub-folders into the correct folder (see 4.)
  4. The OBS installation folder can be different depending on your Operating System.
  5. On a 32bit Windows you can only install the OBS 32bit version, and by default it uses the folder:
    • C:\Program Files\OBS\ -> everything goes into the plugins folder
    On a 64bit Windows the installer sets up both the 32bit and the 64bit version for you. So if you use the 32bit version extract everything to:
    • C:\Program Files(x86)\OBS\plugins
    And the 64bit plugins go to:
    • C:\Program Files\OBS\plugins
  6. Now you can start OBS and check the plugins list to see if everything worked and the plugin shows up. Some plugins also have to be configured using this menu.
