    Question recording a screencast with Open Broadcaster Studio

    I recorded a screencast but the video was pitch black

    Someone suggested me that ot could be a bug related to some mesa thing

    I'm on Fedora 28 x86_64, it's august 2018

    You probably haven't chose a source for OBS to capture, either Window Capture or whole screen capture:
