Question / Help "An Encoder Error Occurred While Streaming" After about 30ish Minutes of streaming.

So I tried streaming today and as the title says, I got the encoder error occurred message after about 30 or so minutes of streaming.

I tried a variety of fixes, installed CoreAudio encoder, checked my gpu drivers, uninstalled and reinstalled OBS, and nothing worked.

It's worth mentioning that I did just get my new CPU, and as a result had to get a new MOBO and DDR4 ram. Everything in terms of hardware is working fine as far as I can tell. I've only tried streaming the new COD with the new hardware so it could be the game, but I don't see why it'd be an issue.

Also, I noticed in the preview window of OBS that while my fps counter never dropped below 30, the video seemed to be skipping/chugging periodically. I don't know if that has any bearing on this but I figured I'd mention it.

Here's my latest log:

So I've had the same issue but was able to fix it. Error appeared when transferring into gameplay from the menu or out of gameplay into the menus correct? Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has an issue with RTX cards and NVENC causing this problem. The only fix right now is to stream using x264 with a preset that your system can run. If you want to run it with NVENC you have to wait for an update from Infinity Ward.
