    Mac Hardware Encoder Doesn’t Respect Bitrate Limit

    Hi, I’m on the latest build and I’m having trouble getting consistent nitrates using the Mac Hardware Encoder. I’ve limited the bitrate to 2800kbps, but it’s still regularly spiking to over 6000kbps. I know this particular encoder has been troublesome in the past, but I need to use it on an...

    Question: Why doesn't OBS use newer ffmpeg libraries? And will hardware accelerated encodeing (ffmpeg -hwaccel options) ever be added?

    Just a couple of questions I was curious about. First, how come OBS doesn't use ffmpeg libraries from something like the newest stable release of ffmpeg? I understand it requires viewing ffmpeg change logs and modifying some library importing code, but it should be a fairly easy feat to do. I'm...
