AMD Advanced Media Framework Encoder Plugin for OBS Studio 2.5.1

Supported Bit Versions
32-bit, 64-bit
Minimum OBS Studio Version
Supported Platforms
This plugin adds support for encoding using dedicated AMD Hardware to the Open Source streaming and recording software called ‘Open Broadcaster Software Studio’ by Jim and a “few” other people.

It offers a simplistic easy to use UI and that allows users to get started quickly with good quality hardware encoding without taking any of the control away from the user.

The plugin is based on AMDs new GPUOpen Advanced Media Framework SDK, uses many modern coding practices and implements any useable optimization strategy possible. Thanks to this it has performance comparable to Plays.TV/Raptr and Windows 10 Game DVR.

It is impossible to encode using this on Rx580
kindly have a look on my log
As stated in the thread you linked, you are overloading your GPU and thus the encoder. This is also the review section, not the help and discussions section.
This plugin alone doesn't fix it but it with a few other steps brings back the missing AMD Encoder option in OBS. I made a video on it.
This is the best thing I could have ever done for my channel, lowered my CPU use by over 50% if not more, has next to no impact on my system, I'd say about 45-50% more detail added to my videos, yes that does mean bigger files but i'll take massive files over low quality any day, I do and will continue to recommend this plugin for anyone with a AMD GPU it is AMAZING! Plus the developer is extremely helpful.
AMD users wanted an updated version of this for a long time!
Thank you! I hope you continue working on this!
I definitely will! I'm excited for the day AMD announces a new Media SDK and will port my code to it too so that h265 and similar is available.
Excellent, still bugs and missing things, but what can you expect from a version 1.0.1 i know this is going to be good!
