    So I've been having a hard time trying to figure out how to set everything up and I've slowly started to get the hang of it, that is until OBS decided to either crash/freeze whenever I stop recording and also keep recording even though I've stopped recording a.k.a. "stopping recoding". Here's...

    Issue with OBS freezing while trying to record footage from a capture card (PS5)

    When I attempt to record footage from a capture card sometimes the image will freeze and the only way to fix it (temporarily) is to unplug and replug in the capture card. However that fix will only work for a short time. Occasionally I can record for 10-15 minutes (didn't try longer honestly...
