Ever wanted to use the Hardware AMD H264 and H265/HEVC encoders in OBS Studio? Well now you can! This plugin adds full support for both into OBS Studio, with both a simple and advanced UI for the casual and power user.

It is built upon the GPUOpen Advanced Media Framework SDK and thanks to a lot of optimizations can rival the raw performance of AMD ReLive and Windows 10 Game DVR while offering many more features.

  • Works on all VCE enabled AMD GPUs with the latest drivers.
  • H264/AVC and H265/HEVC Encoders
  • Presets for easy setup
  • Several View Modes that gradually reveal more options for Power Users wishing to mix and match.

Plugin works but AMD encoder is trash! High motion quality boost does absolutely nothing!
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!
