    Hello, I really like how my videos look right now. The problem is that I need 2 audio tracks which is something not possible in simple output settings

    So my question is simply: What settings do I need to set up in the advanced tab to get the same-looking results? Take a look at the screenshot to see what I want to achieve in the advanced tab!

    Can't get stream to look crisp

    Hey guys, lately i've noticed that my stream doesn't look very crisp and looks quite blurry at times(mainly when i'm moving my camera in game etc).

    Is there possible to select VBR for Core AAC?

    I found it will use VBR when using FFmpeg. But it will use CBR when using Core AAC no matter what.

    What's the AAC encoder profile selection logic?

    When at the same bitrate. I found it will choose HE-AAC almost times, but sometimes it will choose HE-AACv2. If I go higher bitrate, it will choose LC. Why? And I want to know the selection logic, thanks.

    Hey, I'm having an issue since I swapped from a 1070 graphics card to 2080. When I was using my 1070 I encoded on my CPU because the GPU couldn't handle NVENC all that well. My stream never had any crashing issues. Part of the reason I wanted to upgrade was to use NVENC. I've been using my...
