Question / Help High ping when I start streaming Overwatch


New Member
Hello, I have been having some problems with OBS recently.
I can record and play Overwatch at high quality with absolutely no ping lag, but when I try to stream, my ping goes from around 24 to 220. This is starting to get really annoying and I can't do anything about it, because I don't know what to fix. I have an i7 6700, GTX 1060 6gb, 16 gigs of DDR4 Ram, and my overwatch FPS is capped to 99, along with my settings being on high. My OBS streaming settings are a NVENC H.264 Encoder, 3500 bitrate, and the preset is set to Low-Latency High Performance. It would be amazing if I could get some help with this. Thanks!


Your bitrate is too high or you are trying to stream on wireless. If you saturate your upload bandwidth you can't communicate with servers, thus jacking up your ping.
