    Video encoder AMD H.264 Not Working???

    I'm trying to set my output encoder for recording (I don't stream) to AMD H.264 or H.265 because It's supposed to make it less laggy or smaller file size. However whenever I try to use it it says "starting output failed. Please check logs for details." My drivers are all up to date. Can someone...

    QuickSync HEVC not showing up in simple view

    My intel laptop (UHD graphics) has both QuickSync H.264 and HEVC encoders in hardware. When viewing the output section in settings using advanced mode both hardware encoders show up, but when I switch over to simple mode only the H.264 hardware encoder shows up. Why? I really like the...

    UHD 770 on i5 12500 or NVENC on RTX 3050?

    I play my games on my PS5. I want to record my gameplay at 1440p/4K 60fps. I want to build a dedicated recording PC. Should I use UHD 770 on Core i5 12500 or NVENC on RTX 3050 for the encoder? I already have 16GB DDR4 3200 and Gen3 NVMe SSD Also tell me the reason is a good idea! Thank you!

    Is it a mistake to use this Encoder Preset with this old, slow hardware?

    Hi, I'm digitizing Laserdiscs using an Elgato external USB capture card designed for analog-to-digital conversions. Today I experimented with setting the resolution to 560 x 360, which is the true resolution of a Laserdisc, but I will probably go back to using 720 x 480, because I didn't like...

    Overloaded encoder with hardware that should be able to handle stream

I recently upgraded from a Ryzen 7 3700x (got a new motherboard and RAM as well) and I never used to get this error before. Why would my performance dip after an upgrade? Kind of lost...
