OBS failing to stream/record due to a new encoding error


New Member
Hello, I'm reletively new to the forums but have been having some issues with OBS lately and can't seem to find the source of my problem. I followed what other people did to fix similar issues, like reinstalling my Nvidia Drivers as well as a fresh install of OBS but haven't had any luck. I've been having OBS fail to start recording or stream and get the same error, NVENC Error: init_encoder: nv.nvEncInitializeEncoder(enc->session, params) failed: 8 (NV_ENC_ERR_INVALID_PARAM). I'm not really sure why this is happening, since earlier this week I was able to stream and record fine and haven't changed anything in OBS that should cause anything like this to happen. The only thing I can think of is that with a recent Windows update that may have changed things, but I haven't really found anything to confirm that yet.

This is my current log file:
