Bandwidth Issues


New Member
Hi guys,

I have been having an issue when trying to stream with obs, which involves bandwidth. for whatever reason my stream crashes after a few seconds due to bandwidth issues and after about five seconds, it comes back on. this happens every 5 minutes or so, if im lucky. I have exhausted my time working with comcast to see if its an issue with them, i have replaced the network hardware in my apartment, ive tried everything. And i dont know what else to do. I havent been able to stream in two months and im not sure what the next step should be. If you have had any experiences like mine please let me know if you were able to resolve them. Thank you!

1. Run OBS as Admin. Right click on shortcut, properties, advanced, check box, ok, apply, ok.
2. Create a new Scene Collection with 1 scene with only 1 game source.
3. Disable StreamElements and any Browser Docks. Nothing else should be using any bandwidth except the stream data itself and the game.
4. Enable Dynamic Bitrate in the Advanced Settings.
5. Your log contains no streaming session. Results of this log analysis are limited. Please post a link to a clean log file.
To make a clean log file, please follow these steps:

1) Restart OBS as Admin.
2) Start your stream for at least 30 seconds. Make sure you replicate any issues as best you can, which means having any games/apps open and captured, etc.
3) Stop your stream.
4) Select Help > Log Files > Upload Current Log File. Send that link here.
