Hey guys.

I'm using the elgato HD60 from my PS4 to my PC. I've got the latest version of OBS Studio. This *just* started happening about a month ago. Basically, my audio from the elgato is extremely choppy and is crackling. I'm seeing that there's something going on with audio buffering in my logs. Here's a copy (https://obsproject.com/logs/1MTLefHjzX-lvcFU).

I turned buffering off for both the elgato source AND my webcam, but no dice. Still having this weird issue. It looks a lot like this if you don't wanna look at the full log:

Bumping for visibility and to also add that I'm not the only one with this issue: a buddy of mine's audio does the same thing and he's on an even more powerful machine. Disabled integrated graphics. Turned off buffering for both sources.

Could the webm graphic files have something to do with it?
