    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.

    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.

      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.
