encoder nvidia nvenc h.264 (ffmpeg) is taking too long to encode


New Member

I've searched everywhere for something to help me with this error.
I'll be streaming and my stream starts freezing and after some time it just shuts down and ends the stream. First it was just stuttering now it went on to fully stopping stream and won't let me be live for more than 5/10 minutes.

I've changed settings everywhere from high to medium to low, changed to the most recommended as well, from encoder to process priority to run as administrator. Everything. It's always happened some stuttering with the message on the bottom left corner, but then OBS would just stop responding, I'd end the task on task manager, wait a second and re-run OBS and then I'd stream for hours with no problem. Now, it just freezes continues, freezes and shuts down with the message from the title.

I also just updated to the latest version.

Would anyone, please, help?

Thank you,

This log file is cut short. It's needed a full log file within a stream when the issue happens.
Avast may be involved on the issue (or not).
