NVENC crash crashes OBS


New Member
When using the NVENC patch to remove the artificial concurrent encoding streams limit (https://github.com/keylase/nvidia-patch) NVENC sometimes crashes which OBS doesn't catch but crash itself. OBS can do nothing to work around this issue but it can atleast catch the error and show a more appropriate error message hinting that the nvencodeapi*.dll library might have been tampered with/corrupted instead of crashing itself in a chain reaction
