OBS Studio 20.1.2 Hotfix Changes (Windows only)
- Reverted x264 version to the previous stable build due to AVX512 optimizations causing stability issues on some systems
- Made a workaround for a potential crash that could happen with the game "Life is Feudal" when game capturing it
Changes in v18.104.22.168:
- Fixed a bug in 20.1.2 where the x264 plugin was still expecting the newer x264 library, and wouldn't initialize properly (Note by Jim: a bug in my update script that slipped by my testing)
