Question / Help Input lag inside games while streaming


New Member
I get high input latency inside games when I stream them using the software encoder but no lag when using hardware encoder, I'm limited to 2200 bitrate so I need to use the software encoder for decent quality at that bitrate since I'm streaming at 720p30 (I cant go lower than that or the quality of my stream will be literally trash), I tried playing with the encoder presets but nothing seems to solve my latency issue, I play and stream on the same machine and I've recently bought a Ryzen 7 1700 especially for streaming, so high cpu usage is very okay with me.
can someone tell me whats causing that high latency thing please? and if there is a way to get rid of it. thanks in advace.
