Turns out that some of the changes in 188.8.131.52 caused exactly what I hoped it wouldn’t cause: crashing on systems with Windows 7 and older. This has now been fixed with the help of Jim (maintainer of OBS Studio).
Additionally some crashes have been fixed that were caused by incorrect default parameters which have been changed to the correct value now. Frame Rate & Size should also now be properly applied again.
As always, you can download it here from GitHub.
