What are you talking about? Your comment makes no sense. I forgot to mention, my machine is Mac Pro 2008You can only use Intel QuickSync hardware encoding on Mac OS, so if your CPU doesn't have an Intel GPU, then no hardware encoding is available on your system in the Mac version of OBS.

As i’ve said already, i do have Windows already, but why cant we use NVENC in macOS?He's saying that in OBS, the only hardware video encoder supported when running on MacOS is Intel QuickSync, which is a feature of Intel CPUs with integrated video.
Mac Pros from that era (like the one I use) have Xeon chips with no integrated video, so there is no QuickSync feature to use.
As far as I know this is still true, although the most recent items I can see confirming this on the forum are from 2016-2017. But I also don't see any changelog items indicating that NVENC support has been added to the MacOS version.
If you want to use the NVENC feature of your 1050Ti while running in that machine, you'll probably need to install Windows 10 to do it.
Without drivers they cannot sell into the Macintosh aftermarket at all.Then why did they invest in GSYNC and Drivers on macOS?
Too bad i guess then. I dont think older ATI GPUs would have hardware encoder neither. Well i guess i have to keep recording at 720pWithout drivers they cannot sell into the Macintosh aftermarket at all.
The lack of NVENC they probably do not consider to be actively hindering their aftermarket sales to Macintosh users, as it is a niche use case.
