Question / Help OBS crashing when i put recording encoder to my AMD GPU!


New Member
Hello everyone.I have been trying to fix this problem since i got a new pc.So i installed OBS studio and i recorded a few gameplays and when i was watching the recorded footage i realised my video was buffering in some moments and that video was recorded with my CPU and i thought my GPU is a lot stronger so i will just use that as a encoder and i selected it,but when i clicked Start Recording it said oops obs has crashed.
I tried :
Installing video drivers
Installing AMD encoder plugins
Reinstalling drivers and OBS and none of them worked
PC specs:
CPU:I5 4570
GPU:AMD RX 580 Nitro+ 8GB DDR5
Thank you so much for reading my post i really need to fix this!
