    AMD Encoder no longer shows up

    My AMD encoder is what I use for encoding because I have a low-end cpu, my GPU is a Radeon RX580, I used to be able to use the encoder but after resetting my pc it disappeared, also I don't know how to get the logs so if you need them, tell me where they're located, thank you

    OBS looks noticeably worse than source on a still-image

    Using Flameshot (Lightshot alternative on Linux) i took an image of the source material and the recorded footage of the escape menu with no moving parts. The second image looks noticeably pixelated, grainy, and the color is off. This was recorded with placeboo, 8000 bitrate, CBR in 1080p. (The...

    OBS won't stop recording

    I pressed Stop Recording, turned to stopping recording, and it doesn't stop, I press it again to force stop, and still doesn't. My PC used to handle this with no problem before, even though it's a large file. It has been 'Stopping Recording' for an hour now. I was recording in mp4, so...

    FPS and frames (rendering and encoding, NOT INTERNET) dropping suddenly during transmission.

    The title is self-explanatory. The problem happens suddenly, after approximately 30min/1h30min of transmission, and, sometimes, it "corrects" itself. It usually lasts more than half an hour. Which is extremely annoying. I've tried everything. All possible configurations. Both output and video. I...

    OBS doesn't store audio in avi file correctly.

    I like to be able to capture gameplay in a format that is ready for editing in Adobe Premiere Pro. Which is why I still use Dxtory. When I record with Dxtory the file I get in the end allows me to import the file into Premiere with all the audio tracks onto the timeline without transcoding, but...

    What's the best encoding settings for recording 1080p60?

    Hey, I'm looking for the best encoding settings while recording at 1920x1080p 60fps. I listed my specs below if that helps at all. I currently use 12000 bitrate on x264. It doesn't look good, I tried 25000 and it still looks terrible. SPECS: Microsoft Windows 10 Ryzen 5 2600 AMD Radeon RX570...

    Hello! Last month I got a new PC and I installed OBS to record some gameplays, I use it to record my switch games and sometimes PC games except I cannot seem to stop getting "Encoding Overload" and I've tried turning down recording settings, changing to x264 and even lower the output. I'm...

    “Apple VT H264 Hardware Encoder" unlocked for Apple Silicon M1

    hey guys, i've been using macbook air m1 16gb for a couple of weeks for streaming and i am generally happy with the performance, m1 is an absolute beast. but, the "x264" encoding in obs' current state (lack of m1 compatibility) leaves a lot to be desired. it's almost impossible to stream at...

    Laggy game and laggy recordings since one of the new updates (atleast i think so.)

    So this issue is very bad. It's forced me to use bandicam instead, however i do prefer obs for many reasons and would wish to go back. according to my logs 84% of my frames are skipped while i was testing my recordings on roblox. i have a ryzen 3 3200g with 16gb of 3200mhz ram, just a few weeks...

    No AMD (Hardware) option at all?

    I tried everything I could before coming here, including a plug in that supposedly would help me, by showing the AMD (Hardaware) option for encoding the video. The plug in didn't work, as when I selected the new encoding alternative, OBS Studio crashed every time I tried to start streaming...

    Best quality per bit encoder?

    I have mediocre internet, so I struggle to get a good image. I stream to YouTube 720p60 with x264 faster preset, and it's had the best looking image so far. I get 4.6 MB/s upload speed. I set my bitrate to 4,300 kbps to leave some headroom for if I play an online game. I have a 3700X and a...

    Cannot select Video-Adapter (2nd GPU)

    Hello there, So i wanted to use my 2nd gpu as an encoder for streaming on Streamlabs. In OBS it worked just fine, I could see my 2 GPUs as “video adapters” in the streaming settings, but in Streamlabs this option is greyed out. I can not select anything. The encoder is set to AMD, the 2nd...

    NEW MACBOOK OBS STILL LAGS

    I’ve never had many issues with OBS and my (older) Mac but most recently I purchased a brand new MacBook Pro and OBS is now basically unusable. I’m not computer savvy but I believe it’s an encoding issue. OBS is reporting a 95% frame drop and basically makes my streams unwatchable and...

    Recent Bitrate extreme fluctuation

    Hey guys, I run a live music stream with obs, it's a 2 camera set up at 1080p with a live audio mixer. Anyways, that's all besides the point. Recently I've been having extreme fluctuations in my bitrate, I run on hardwire ethernet directly into my mac (I have a 2018 macbook pro that I have an...

    Question / Help Need help setting up OBS

    Hey folks, so I've noticed when recording certain games there are a ton of compression artifacts. Which I attributed to downscaling from 1440p to 1080p. So I decided to just record at 1440p to capture all the details since I don't need to worry about bitrate, I post mainly to youtube. However...
