    Some help adjusting settings for 4K recording?

    I have a 4K monitor and a Quadro RTX 5000 graphics card, and I don't actually even want to record. I just want to enable my replay buffer for 2 minutes in case anything cool happens. The problem is that when I enable it (or even have OBS open), I get a crazy framerate drop. I thought sure, I...

    Does streaming and recording at the same time use more CPU when using NVENC?

    using recording quality same as stream or different quality. Is it just asking more work to the encoder (on the GPU) or is it doing more work on the CPU too?

    Is it ACTUALLY better to use my desktop resolution as a base canvas size?

    I mean this as more of like a technical question... not just like a... once upon a time in a YouTube video some guy said said always use my desktop resolution so that's the end solution. I have a 3440x1440 ultrawide monitor, but I basically never stream at the 3440x1440 native resolution. I...

    Apple Silicon M1 (in new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini) is not "blazing fast" in OBS

    Apparently, this CPU is "blazing fast" when it comes to many tasks, but for some reason, it just absolutely blows for streaming (even as a dedicated streaming computer). This thing cannot even do 720p60 on fast. Thats pathetic since even my 4790k (which scores like less than half as this CPU)...

    Bitrate spikes drastically

    I stream at 6000 bitrate, but sometimes my bitrate output spikes up to 20 - 35K, which makes my ping in-game really high and the stream laggy. I really need help with this as the high bitrate stays for at least a minute which really ruins the vibes.
