bitrate issues when trying to stream on twitch.


New Member
So I have a consistent issue with a lot of streaming applications when i attempt to stream on twitch,
when I run test streams on OBS it shows that I'm dropping a lot of frames,
I set my scale to 1920x1080, 30 FPS With 6000 bitrate and opened nothing just streamed a blank screen, and OBS shows a yellow/red square with my bitrate streaming between 1000 and 2500 bitrate, and that stays that way even when I decrease my stream to 720p, 30 frames and 3000 bitrate.

My Setup is as follows:
Windows 11
AMD Radeon R9 280 - 3GB
Intel core i3 3240 - 3.4 GHz
Internet - 100MBPS Upload - 100MBPS Download

thing is I can play games and record them at 1080p60 without any problems
and when I tested a YouTube stream I could play at 1080p30, 6500 bitrate without any issues as well.
bare in mind I tried test streaming a blank screen on twitch and struggled to get 2500 Bitrate consistently.

any solutions?
