Troubleshooting — OBS does not open, it just crashes

We bundle the StreamFX plugin to provide additional encoders in OBS. This plugin does not play well with some (very) old CPUs. If OBS will not open for you, open a terminal and try the following:

cd /usr/lib64/obs-plugins/
sudo mv StreamFX.so /tmp/

Then try to launch OBS. If this works you will need to do this when you launch OBS until the issue is resolved and/or we remove the plugin in a future update (or until you upgrade your CPU).
