Today, I downloaded the MacOS version of Streamlabs OBS. I start setting up for a potential recording, and noticed that I couldn’t find the Game Capture anywhere in the Sources. I don’t know what’s the problems, can someone help me out?

It’s actually not the same issue. I’m having the same issue. I stream games to twitch and I have El Gato 60S+ and I have been using the streamlabs Mac app for a week, everything is fine except using video capture I have no audio and game capture option does not exist on the app for me. It’s simply not an option in sources even tho all other youtube videos of other ppls application clearly has it.  Clearly a development issue amongst certain downloads.

Hey all and thanks for the video @arkanp007,

This is a helpful point in utilizing Display capture. MacOS does not have Game Capture as we know it on Windows, as their graphics APIs do not allow for this. Users will need to either use a window capture source or a desktop capture.

I hope this information helps!
