    Black Video output after finishing a recording

    Hello! I just came upon an issue where, when recording an elgato input, my finished file is black video, with no audio. I have included a log file with this post. The weirdest part is that, when recording the same setup last week, there was no issue, but now one has come up. Please advise.
