Question / Help OBS 25.0.7 + Droidcam client (Linux) is too laggy after "Start Stream"


New Member
Hello, guys
I've been experiencing too much lag in my streamings using OBS 25.0.7 (Linux) + Droidcam client (via ADB) with a Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite, streaming to YouTube in 720p.

The symptoms:
- Initially, droidcam and adb processes are low in CPU usage, about 3%; OBS runs around 17%;
- Then, suddenly, droidcam process gets 25% and adb 0%. OBS doesn't change. The video at this point is very laggy, and glitching.
- This behavior longs for a 1 or 2 minutes, varying from 16% to 25% the CPU usage of droidcam.

The only other processes running are Firefox (at YT Studio) and Spotify. However, even closing them, the amount of CPU usage of droidcam doesn't decrease.
The configuration and log information are in Unfortunately, droidcam neither output log nor crashes.

Does anyone know what could be going on? Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
