Put the processor models in at http://www.cpuboss.comLebo said:Hello again. I have tried for a while now to get the second PC setup to work on my dual-core opteron @1.8 box. However it quickly starts dropping frames and never recovers. So I am looking into a new box for this. With a budget of under $100 I can either get an old server with two quad cores @ ~2Ghz or a old amd quad core and over clock it. So my question is which would work better in this situation, eight cores or four cores running 1Ghz faster.
I'm not experienced with capture cards but my technical experience makes me think that's where you need to look. I know that the quality can be limited by the capture card. That leads me to believe it could be a bottleneck if it can't handle the amount of data you're passing through it. What model do you have?ZagatoMKR said:That's what I have on my Win7 test setup. The problem however is that OBS isn't using much CPU on it. It's about 20% CPU load when streaming still pictures and about 40% (spikes) when streaming action. That's with faster, fast and medium profiles. But like I've said, there are problems with medium profile saying "encoding takes too long, skipping frames". I would love a solution that'd enable my streaming PC to compress/encode stream data even better (at least 60% CPU load on average). Or is there a setting somewhere in OBS that allows it to use as much CPU as it is available?
