Dropped network frames with good hardware and internet | Need Help!


New Member
Ive been having issues with my obs for years now. Sometimes I can stream for hours with no dropped frames but sometimes its the second I start the stream. Its all random and when it happens it doesn't go away. I have good specs and decent internet and all my settings on obs are good.

ryzen 7 7700
32 gb ddr5

500 download
25 upload

The only games I play are siege and cod, so it's not intensive on my hardware at all.

1. In Windows, we recommend that "Game Mode" be enabled for maximum gaming performance. Game Mode can be enabled via the Windows 10 "Settings" app, under Gaming > Game Mode.
2. Display and Game Capture Sources interfere with each other. Never put them in the same scene (Main and Main 2 [Looks like you already removed from Main]).
3. Your log does contain a streaming session with dropped frames. This can only be caused by a failure in your internet connection or your networking hardware. It is not caused by OBS. Follow the troubleshooting steps at: Dropped Frames and General Connection Issues. The quick fix is to use RTMP (instead of RTMPS) with Dynamic Bitrate. Also recommended that you follow the Twitch Broadcasting Guidelines of 6000 kbps
4. You had 0.1% of encoder overload and rendering lag. If still having issues, see the GPU Overload Issues guide.

If still having issues, post new log.

"It is not caused by OBS".
Dropped frames started after 1h or 2h of stream randomly right after installing 30.1.2. It also says "encoder overloaded" when this occurs. It has nothing to do with network apparently despite what says the log analyzer. It's an encoder issue/ not network.
Fiber internet tests are fully OK.

Reverted my installation to OBS 30.1.1 : no dropped frames since.

OBS admins should investigate this.

Lots of issues with the Realtek & Intel 2.5GbE NIC's, usually just a driver update is needed & problems go away.
