macOS 10.15 Catalina Support Status

The newest version of macOS, 10.15 "Catalina", is now available. However, OBS Studio is currently not yet fully compatible with it. These issues stem from a change to the way Catalina handles permissions for things such as capturing webcams and microphones. For example, if you have a webcam capture in one of your scenes, OBS will crash. We are currently working on a fix.

Users currently have two options for running OBS on Catalina right now:

Option 1: Download and run the test build

This is a test build that we have put together that reorganizes the application package in a way more compatible with Catalina. Please help us test this version and let us know if you encounter any issues with it. We hope to have a formal release soon.

Important notes about this build:
  • This build is not signed, so the first time you open it, macOS may complain and not let you open it. If you can't open OBS, right-click on the icon and click "Open", and the pop-up should have an "Open" option available to open the program anyway.
  • The updater may not work correctly, so you will likely need to manually download the full update later when it comes out. However, this should work for many of you at least as a stop-gap so you at least have something working.
  • The install process has changed. Now when you open the .dmg file, you simply need to drag the OBS.app file into your Applications folder to install.
Download the test release here: http://obsproject.com/downloads/obs-24.0.3-installer-catalina-fix-02.dmg

Option 2: Run OBS manually from the Terminal

If you want to run the normal release, you will likely need to run OBS via the Terminal. Open the Terminal app and type the following:

Code:

NOTE:When you run OBS from the Terminal this way, and attempt to add things such as webcam capture or display capture, the Terminal will ask for these permissions instead of OBS. If so, be sure to grant those permissions to the Terminal to ensure functionality in OBS.

Important Notes

Permissions for Display Capture, Microphone, and Cameras


If you are trying to capture your display, microphone, or a camera on Catalina, you should get a pop-up asking to grant permission to OBS to allow it to do so. However, it seems that some users are not getting this pop-up. If you are having trouble with any of these things, you may need to manually grant OBS these permissions.

To do so, go to Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy, then under the entries for "Screen Recording", "Camera", and "Microphone", ensure that OBS is checked. Note that if you are running OBS from the Terminal, you may need to grant these permissions to the Terminal as well (unconfirmed).

Note about the NDI plugin:

For those of you using the third-party NDI plugin, you may need to run the following three commands from the Terminal in order to get it working:

Bash:

Bug Report WARNING - OBS does not work on MacOS 10.15 Catalina

kaiservongrauer said:

This morning I decided to troubleshoot my audio issues running OBS via terminal. With nothing plugged into my MacBook Pro, I clicked the OBS icon out of habit and it launched without crashing. With OBS running, I plugged in my cameras and video capture device and turned on my xbox and OBS crashed. I attached the problem report generated by Catalina.

Next, I unplugged everything and clicked the OBS icon. OBS started up without crashing. With OBS running I plugged in a single Logitech camera and OBS immediately crashed. I unplugged the camera, clicked on the OBS icon, and OBS started again. Log file attached.

I tried viewing the OBS crash report but when I click on view crash report or upload crash report log file, nothing happens.

Click to expand...

I tried it too, opening the obs without the camera connected, after that started the tests on camera and OBS only opens/remain working when i delete the camera view on it, tried using Logitech c922, the facetime and tried the snapcamera(thinking about changing the interface of capture since the snapcamera uses the camera then OBS gets the "virtual camera"), on all tests OBS crashes when open the camera, cause of this i think the problem on Catalina + OBS are on the Camera calls of OBS since its what are causing the crashs. Tests on Imac Late 2015, logs attached

Would you like to know what to do if you are using OBS after upgrading your operating system to macOS Catalina because that will fix all your issues?

Does OBS Work on MacOS Catalina + How To Set Permissions After Upgrading!

Does OBS work on macOS Catalina and what do we need to do to make it work?

Technically, as soon as you upgrade, it will not work. You need to go through and make several permissions in order to allow OBS to work.

Check out my OBS course.

That means if you are considering upgrading to macOS Catalina, you will need to plan some time and energy to make the conversion from your previous operating system into Catalina.

Does OBS Work on MacOS Catalina + How To Set Permissions After Upgrading!

I generally think it’s a good idea to be on a newer operating system as long as it’s had enough time to work out some of the kinks. It’s been about six months since Catalina was released and OBS has been working on it.

Obviously OBS is working on macOS Catalina since I’m using this to film the video.

What I’ll do here is show you how I got it working, what I had to go through.

First, in order to get this to work, I needed to go through and set a bunch of these different permissions that come up.

Setting permissions on Mac

You need to allow OBS to receive keystrokes from any application.

You need to allow OBS to use the microphone.

You need to allow OBS if you want it to, to do alerts and popups.

Each of these will pop up individually.

You need to check all of them to make sure it works.

You need to do this in the “Security & Privacy” section of your Mac.

You click on “Settings,” then you go in and when it asks for permission, makes sure you say, “Yes” or that feature won’t work.

This is what it looks like when you’ve given it permission.

Setting permissions on Mac for OBS

Then, once it’s checked, that means it’s working.

OBS needs permission to do a lot of different things on your computer. If you haven’t set some of these up, and then you try to do them, you may encounter this.

Setting permissions on Mac

Make sure when any permission comes up that you click “Open System Preferences.”

Then you need to close OBS in order for it to work.

Setting permissions on Mac

Then you can actually get it to work.

You need to do this with the microphone, the camera, the keystrokes and the screen recording.

Does OBS Work on MacOS Catalina + How To Set Permissions After Upgrading!

I like that Mac is helping us make sure applications are not using our camera, our microphones, our key strokes or our screen in the background without our permission.

Unfortunately for OBS, this means a lot of permissions to make sure it can do it.

You set all these, and there is more bad news on top of that.

Once you allow OBS to use the camera, you need to go in and add your cameras again.

Yes, you heard that correctly.

If you’re like me and you’ve got all these different scenes that you move your face around on, I had to go add my camera and apply all the filters to it again.

Nice!

Does OBS Work on MacOS Catalina + How To Set Permissions After Upgrading!

Once you do that, then you’re ready to go at full performance.

Unfortunately, this means for every single profile.

For example, for me, I have a vertical video profile where I film videos for stories, applications like TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube stories.

I filmed those vertical, which means I need to add my camera back on both of those profiles to make it work.

Does OBS Work on MacOS Catalina + How To Set Permissions After Upgrading!

You also need to set your microphone up again.

If your microphone is on anything but the default device when you try to start OBS, it will not begin recording even if you give it permission, and in my case it was on the wrong microphone.

That means you need to go through and put the correct microphone on before you start recording or live streaming.

Does OBS Work on MacOS Catalina + How To Set Permissions After Upgrading!

Luckily, I didn’t get caught live streaming or filming a long recording without having the microphone on. I always check the microphone levels to make sure it’s working anytime I get into the studio.

Once you’ve done all that, OBS should be working just fine for you.

I’ve got OBS working now.

I upgraded my operating system with the hope it would help me use a different feature on Mac to use Bootcamp Assistant to install Windows and that did not work, but now I’ve got macOS Catalina.

Once you’ve learned this for OBS, you will also be familiar that other applications need these permissions as well.

For example, I use Snagit to capture images and edit them off my screen for pictures. I take a video, drop it into Snagit, grab the first thumbnail really quickly off of it. I don’t even have to edit since I record with OBS.

I had to go through and do these permissions separately for Snagit to also get it to work.

The good news is OBS and macOS Catalina do work well together once you get all of these different things done, it will work for you and you will be in luck with it.
