    Question / Help OBS Encoding overloaded help?

    Sorry if the pictures are too big or too small this is my first forum post on here. I don't like recording in 720P because it gives way less quality but the error stops when I record in 720p. I think that's the problem and I'm just stupid for making this post. Also sorry for the long post...
