OBS freezes after trying to add a new video capture device.


New Member
I have tried on the discord server, but I want to try here too.

But, when I try to add a new video capture device, after naming and pressing ok to the next step of the selection screen, obs freezes. The video workspace still works however, it will not respond and will be permanently stuck on loading. And before you ask, I have tried installing an older version and reinstalling it, but I still appreciate the help.

for some more information, it has worked before, however, it would not work now, I'm not sure if it's windows 11 or the new updates on obs that are causing this.

Please give me any advice or try to contact me on discord.

basic specs:
Windows 11
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-10400 CPU @ 2.90GHz 2.90 GHz
Installed RAM 48.0 GB (47.9 GB usable)
System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
Graphics card Geforce RTX 2060-super
Storage 1TB of Hardrive and SSD
