    Data rate on videos is higher than usual

    Log file: I'm recording with CQP rate control set at level 18. This has worked for me before, giving me bitrates around 3,000-5,000. But recently, the bitrate has become 30,000-35,000, which takes up way to much storage, and I don't know why. OBS is...

    1080p60 recordings look terrible at corresponding bit rate levels.

    I have always recorded at 50000 kb/s which got me nice quality, but the big downside is that the file size was huge. For a 10 minute video, the file size is 3.3 GB. When I upload to YouTube it takes around 40-50 minutes (I have a good connection with Ethernet) and the final product is a 1080p60...

    Got a quick question, I got a i5 7500 with an RX 580 with sufficient ram and such but my recordings and streams are either terrible quality or dropping frames for a whole second at times, what’s the bottleneck here? Before you immediately claim “i5 bad” it was a pretty decent quad core i5 when...

    Question / Help OBS Bitrate with high speed internet

    I have a problem. I'm trying to stream on twitch and I really want to stream with high quality and bitrate. But I can't set more than 5000 Kbps. I heard that some stremers streaming with 8000 Kbps or more. I think I can't use more than 5000 Kbps becouse I live so far from the servers but may be...
