To have an idea what I meant, you can click this link of a tutorial video. Now the problem is, I don't have a second monitor and not plan to have extra one. But since I...

    Deactivate Display Capture When Not Visible

    I may be misinformed on this so please correct me if I am wrong. Currently when using Display Capture OBS will render the capture regardless if it is visible or hidden. I understand why this behavior is there. This way the capture is immediately available at all times. The downside is OBS is...
