Amazing plugin!
The function of coming back to the last scene after the entire clip ended is what I was looking for, but the RAM went from 800mb to 9gb...
The plugin stores the replay not encoded or compressed in memory. If you want less memory usage you can look at the replay buffer or source recording.
Great plugin and I have got it working kind of how I want to ,but I cannot get it to replay the audio yet when the clip is saved the audio is working on the replay file. Any advice?
very good plugins,I love it!!
This is a very good plugin that helps a lot in some interesting moments. I recommend downloading and installing it.
Easy to use and in my case I didn't use a lot of resources.

I hope in the future for the opportunity to choose many audio devices or grouped ones.
first time good, but tomorrow my obs always not respon :)
maybe my pc not enough ram
I love the idea of this, and when it works without affecting the stream, it's awesome. I create a pretty cool "Instant Replay" type feature using this.

I am having audio desync issues since installing this plugin though. After streaming for a little bit, the audio for my capture card ends up falling behind the video. Is there anything I can do to remedy this?

I am running 28 GBs of RAM, so it shouldn't be that I wouldn't think.
The idea is amazing but mi RAM usage went from 700mb up to 6GB idk if there is any optimizations for this
Amazing tool for replays but is there a possibility to save te captured files to mp4 and not flv because I'm working on directly uploading videos to my website and flv files are not supported :/
Great Ideas. But just cannot get it to work without crashing. I keep deinstalling and working without it because crashes are so frequent. But then I keep coming back to it to try to see if bugs fixed because it really is a cool plugin...

I just spent quite a bit of time creating some simple scenes to try to replicate the bug. For sure if you use the "Start Delay" field (I used two seconds) the %INDEX% starts to show some really long floating point numbers and then it will crash soon after.

I have posted the scene collection, crash log and log files at this dropbox link if it helps:

The provided crash log is a crash in obs-websocket.dll during the shutdown of OBS, that seems unrelated to this plugin.
Is it a crash or is it a freeze of the application?
