Question / Help Long Time Lag and where is Device Timestamps?


New Member
Hi I have been having issues with OBS for some time, especially when doing LIVES on Facebook with long time lag with lip syncing on videos. I fixed it a while back but it's happening again. Another thing, which is posing an issue is recording direct into OBS. I just recorded a video and my voice was lagging so did not sync at all. I recently started using a procaster microphone through a focusrite interface, could this cause an issue ? Prior I was using a cheaper USB microphone, but I need this better microphone.

I am on Windows 10 on a PC.

I saw on numerous threads to go to the little cog, properties and un-tick timestamps, but I can't find this on my OBS dashboard. I am not as audio savvy as many people here so need this in layman's terms. I did a while back change all my camera settings so it was not interfering as much but it's posing a big problem now as I need to do these videos.

You can also open the "Advanced Audio Properties" (the last item in that list) and use the Sync Offset field to sync it.

Hi there, I still have no option for timestamps, and in the area you have it only has my logitech camera, when I click on properties and scroll down my focusrite interface is there, so I am using my procaster microphone.

When I go to the area you said above and go to advanced... in sync offset as it is my logitech device will that not relate to that? And what number ofset by?

Does anyone have an answer for this? I am having to use my IPAD to do LIVE's now and I have an amazing microphone and camera I currently cannot use.
