Yeah, I agree. So in the end, do you recommend finding the perfect VBV Buffer Size, and just use CBR?

I'd basically recommend this for any encoder capable of bitrate restriction:
  • CBR for Internet Streaming, though VBR works too but you're more likely to be dropped or cause buffering.
  • VBR for In-Home streaming or Peer-To-Peer streaming.
  • CQP/CRF for Recording.
Edit: @SyrupLeaf: Please read the Troubleshooting Guide for help. It is linked in the first post of this thread.

With the latest Adrenalin 2020 update (today) I've noticed a performance decrease on my RX 580 8GB when using your plugin.

These settings here usually left the card at 80-85% encoding usage before, and now they sometimes push it to 99%:

View Mode Master is unsupported, you are on your own. Since the plugin didn't change, you will likely have to contact AMD.

and then ? i see no option to switch over h264/avc to H265
Streaming only allows H264/AVC if you want to use the graphics card and x264 with the CPU.
There is no way to stream with HEVC.
Only by using an nVidia card you can stream with NVENC.
Why HEVC isn't supported to stream with and by streaming sites I have no idea.

Recording allows H264/AVC, H265/HEVC and x264.

Just wondering, does it help to improve performane on AVC or HEVC if you change from "graphics" to "compute" in the Radeon Settings? (if recording/streaming if done on a second GPU)

Anyone know if AMD have the two-passing encoder or anything like that? I want to use my secondary GPU as the Encoder, but I can't find that anywhere in my OBS. Thanks in advance

Hi all,
just wondering if anyone can suggest what I can do to restore the AMD Encoder on the Encoder settings dropdown menu. Right now, my choices are only these two:

a bit more info:
I just updated my OBS to version 25.0.1 a few hours ago

previously, I was using either version 23.2.1 or maybe a bit higher — I might have updated it before I eventually updated to the present 25.0.1.

thing is, the AMD encoder was included in my Encoder options before I updated to 25.0.1, so it seems unlikely that it is a graphics driver issue.

I use a Lenovo laptop and my graphics card details are below:

The AMD Encoder is very useful for me because it has minimal CPU utilization for my laptop (ideapad 320 — not very powerful, I admit). What I did as a workaround was to run the Auto-Configuration Wizard, so right now I'm able to record (I don't stream) adequately, but still, it would truly be more amazing if I could use the AMD Encoder.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe that the plugin files are just sitting right here in my OBS plugins folder but gosh darn it why can't this new update of OBS see the thing? Do I have to uninstall OBS and just start fresh and install the new version from scratch (I updated using the update manager, so I didn't need to uninstall anything)?

any suggestion would be greatly appreciated!

The plug-in more than likely needs to be updated & 25 may not be supported yet. Xaymar posted in his StreamFX plug-in thread not to install 25 until he had a chance to update that plug-in (the update was posted yesterday) I'd uninstall 25 for now & re-install the version of OBS I was previously using, then just wait for confirmation that the current version will work or it's been updated to work.

yup, you're spot-on accurate. I decided to follow your suggestion and now the AMD Encoder is back. Guess I'll just have to do my homework on the plug-in update moving on from here. Thanks a lot!

Already download it and install it but still, there is no AMD hardware encoder in my obs.

Anyway that's my current log
