"Failed to open NVENC codec: Unkown error occoured" Debian 12


New Member

I am trying to record a video with modest settings and an issue came up regarding my NVENC codec. I'm not entirely sure what caused this issue because just two days before this, I recorded a video without a hitch. I attached the logs, if you need anymore information I'll gladly provide it.

NVIDIA Driver version: 525.125.06 installed via APT
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile

Yes, my laptop is in the performance mode allowing for use of only my 3060.
