    Encoding Error: what does it mean?

    Hi everyone. Recently started getting this encoding error with OBS Studio randomly after the most recent GeForce update. It doesn’t happen immediately while streaming but often 3-4 hours into a twitch stream with no previous issues or warnings that it’s going to happen. It cuts my entire stream...

    NVENC actually uses a lot of GPU resources and watts

    The premise of NVENC is to handle video encoding without impacting game performance much. There's a lot of discussion on the internet about the computer resources used by NVENC in various forums, blogs, Youtube videos, etc and the general consensus seems to be that it does use a bit of CPU and...

    Plugin: Getting Encoded Frame Information

    Hello! We are currently working on a source plugin. After it has output video through obs_source_output_video, we need to grab information about the frame later, after it has been encoded, right when it is sent to let say a streaming service. Is there a way, through the existing public API, to...

    Encoder randomly getting overloaded while recording when it usually runs fine

    I've been using OBS to record my videos for 18 months, and I've had the same settings the whole time. I've been able to record almost any game without any sort of lag, up until 12.18.2021. I didn't change any settings, yet I'm now getting the "Encoding overloaded" warning message every time I...

    AMD GPU Hardware Encoder 0.1.0

    OBS ships with an existing AMD GPU encoder which is sadly outdated and unmaintained. This plugin is a rewrite of the original fixing several bugs in the process. As an additional feature it supports texture based encoding which makes GPU encoding even less CPU intensive. In it's current state...

    GTX 1660 TI or RTX 3050 TI for encoding multiple streams on Win64 ?

    Hi guys! I hope you don't mind this is not a technical issue but I would really appreciate your feedback though :) I plan on upgrading my Matebook D14 to a better laptop so that I can record all my sources (five so far) and also multistream at the same time at 720p or even 1080p as I have 100mb...

    Blurry stream with high bitrate and RTX 3070

    Hey guys, I have had this issue for a while now and it keeps on bugging me. My streams always have some sort of blurry/grainy look to it. I used to think that this is a hardware issue but since I recently picked up the new RTX 3070 I think the issue is somewhere in my settings. I should have a...

    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...
