    OBS massive frame loss

    Hello! I've been streaming and after booting up Apex legends my OBS suddenly can't keep up anymore. It stutters VERY HEAVILY. My game looks totally fine, but OBS stutters down to like 10-20FPS. Apex uses 80-90% GPU which I believe is normal. OBS started using 50-60% GPU until I turned power...

    H.264 is deleted after formatting and installing drivers again.

    Before I formatted my computer, I had an "H.264" video card driver encoder. But now I only have x264 CPU encoder. It didn't fix even though I downloaded all the drivers. Windows 11 Pro 64Bit Latest version of OBS Studio.

    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...

    Hello there, I'm trying to optimize my cpu load (older cpu) while streaming. I watched some videos where they say, that it's better to use browser sources instead of local files. But how does that make sense? The browser source must be rendered like everything else right? Or is it about...
