mac slows down with obs, the streaming screen lags on twitch reallll bad


New Member
so whenever i have obs open, whether im streaming or not, it lags down my laptop way too much, that its nearly hard to function.

another problem is that i usually connect my phone to my laptop, then show that screen on quicktime, which i connect to obs, which will be streamed to twitch.
this was a way that i found out to stream stuff from my phone screen, but then it lags way too much..

actually but even without the phone connection, having the obs open itself and while streaming, it just slows down everything on my mac, and even on twitch it shows that screen is lagging wayyyy to much that its like 0.7fps :(

anyone knows the reason and how to fix it?
