    OBS has "oPtiMisEd" my video to 700mb and 0.07 fps

I took a video and sat down to mount it, when suddenly I see that it weighs 600 megabytes (which is not enough for...

    Question / Help OBS cant record at a decent quality

    Every time I record ANYTHING OBS just records at more or less 4-5 FPS and pretty pixelated. I don't get why this is an issue, i've recorded at 1080p 60FPS before on other software with no problem. OBS just seems to not work at all.
