Adds a new request called SaveOutputScreenshot which takes a screenshot of the main OBS output.

Motivation and Context

I am currently developing a plugin that utilizes the OBS WebSocket Server. One of the essential
commands I need to include is the ability to capture an output screenshot. This command must be
made available in the OBS WebSocket Server.

How Has This Been Tested?

Tested OS(s): macOS Ventura 13.4.1
Testing method: Postman
After successfully connection, I send this command:

    "op": 6,
    "d": {
        "requestType": "SaveOutputScreenshot",
        "requestId": "19b2e224-67b8-470a-a216-fc0f6a87160e"

Then I received responses:

    "d": {
        "requestId": "19b2e224-67b8-470a-a216-fc0f6a87160e",
        "requestStatus": {
            "code": 100,
            "result": true
        "requestType": "SaveOutputScreenshot"
    "op": 7
    "d": {
        "eventData": {
            "savedScreenshotPath": "/Users/oooooo/Movies/Screenshot 2023-07-24 15-52-42.png"
        "eventIntent": 1024,
        "eventType": "ScreenshotSaved"
    "op": 5
