OBS is missing new browser source feature

So since version 25.0 the "browser source" feature in OBS (obs-studio) is supposed to work on Linux by default.

See 25.0 features here: https://github.com/obsproject/obs-studio/releases

But in the Arch package (obs-studio) this feature doesn't work.

You can easily test that it doesn't work two ways:
- Click on the + sign in "Sources", and the list will be missing "Browser source"
- Try dragging a URL to OBS It will say that it will create a source from it, but then nothing happens. See: https://obsproject.com/tools/browser-drag-and-drop

Tried to build obs-studio-git from AUR but it fails, exactly with the browser source part:

make[2]: *** [plugins/obs-browser/CMakeFiles/obs-browser.dir/build.make:93: plugins/obs-browser/CMakeFiles/obs-browser.dir/obs-browser-source.cpp.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory '/tmp/packerbuild-1000/obs-studio-git/obs-studio-git/src/obs-studio-git/build'
make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:1382: plugins/obs-browser/CMakeFiles/obs-browser.dir/all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/tmp/packerbuild-1000/obs-studio-git/obs-studio-git/src/obs-studio-git/build'
make: *** [Makefile:169: all] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
    Aborting...

A comment suggests a temporary solution to this: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/obs- … ent-737390

So I wonder if the Arch version is built incorrectly? Or maybe this feature needs a dependency that is not listed? Should I make a bugreport, or?

Re: OBS is missing new browser source feature

Alright so... what now? Does this mean this just won't get fixed because it would require a workaround that doesn't qualify for the requirements to be in main repos? Or is there a proper way to fix it maybe? (Thanks for the link BTW)

Re: OBS is missing new browser source feature

Does building it with cef-minimal-3770,  produce a working browser?  There was an issue with the chrome sandbox and glibc 2.31.
Does it not work with cef-minimal?  If an older browser engine (3770) was used what protections does OBS provide against vulnerabilities?

Re: OBS is missing new browser source feature

I spoke to the guys on OBS Discord - and they said its up to the repository manager for (Arch) to include the browser plugin with the build.

If that doesn't happen what is the work around?

Yes, building obs-studio-git with cef-minimal-3770 works for me. It does not work with cef-minimal.
