[PSA] OBS Studio 27.0.0-rc1 from Flathub Beta on Wayland will require re-adding window and monitor captures

Greetings

Recently, OBS Studio landed all the pull requests adding support for Wayland, and my plugin obs-xdg-portal was incorporated upstream. This was a great achievement for the community, and I’m sure it’ll enable many people to use this fantastic application :slight_smile:

However, due to the capture identifiers not matching, the ones from the plugin will stop working. Users of OBS Studio from Flathub Beta will need to re-add these captures.

I’d like to reassert that, as implied by the name, using any application from Flathub Beta is subject to this kind of breakage. Please please please always be careful when using beta applications.

Let me know if you have any questions or need any assistance.
