OBS has been crashing after 28.0 update

Hi,

Ever since I updated my OBS Studio to 28.0 and now to 28.0.3, my OBS Studio has been crashing non-stop. A couple weeks ago, it would keep crashing multiple times immediately after going live until I restart my pc and streaming would be fine. I actually ended up doing a FRESH Windows 10 install because I figured it would help resolve the crashing issue. But it hasn't.

Now on the latest update, my stream was okay for 25 minutes before OBS decided to crash and close itself. I attempted to restart stream, but then I run into the issue of no audio (for viewers). On my audio mixer, I can see the respective audio moving up and down- but my viewers cannot hear anything at all. Shortly after, OBS closed itself AGAIN. I am attaching the 3 log files I found. If anyone could help, that would be greatly appreciated!

You probably instaled OBS 28 over se.live.

Uninstall se.live, then uninstall and reinstall OBS in order to fix the changes made by se.live.
You also can (or should) remove the remaining se.live files from the %appdata%\obs-studio folder.

Do test.

Sounds good, I will test after I get off work today 5pm (PST) I'm pretty sure I installed the se.live plugin after installing base obs studio.

Update:
I went into control panel and uninstalled SE.live
I deleted obs studio folder under C:\Program Files as well as %appdata%\obs-studio folder
I uninstalled obs studio and restarted pc

I grabbed new obs studio installer from their site. I also grabbed new se.live installer after installing obs studio. So far, so good - no crashes.

I will comment again if it ends up crashing again- but if not, then everything is working fine! Thank you @PaiSand !

I might've spoken too soon. So my OBS crashed upon ending stream yesterday. And I tested again today, I was mid gaming on Overwatch 2 and OBS crashed out of nowhere.

If my OBS crashes only after ending, I guess I could live with that. But my main concern is OBS crashing mid-stream today. Thoughts?

The attached files are not crash reports.
You still use streamelements plugin, which you should have tested without it, and streamfx is in alpha.

You don't need at all the streamelements plugin. You can simple add custom docks linking to the chat and events as shown in streamelements site.
Now, please redo all I asked before to clean the OBS instalation. The only way to see if it's something from OBS is if you remove and test without any plugin. Any. It's up to you to figure out what's the issue.

Well, StreamFX is still in Alpha for OBS28 Not stable yet by far so expect issues Try uninstalling it
Odd, because my friend uses the same plugins (StreamFX and SE.live) and they have not had a single crash. But that is something I could try too, I'll switch back to the old encoder that I was using.

Apologies for the misworded files- they are log files that I found after I got the notification that "OBS has stopped working"

I personally like the streamelements plugin because you can rename the bot to your streamer name - thus not needing to gift StreamElements every month to use your own emotes. And also, reinstallation has helped it not crash immediately after going live so thank you for that. I'm going to switch my encoder and see if that helps.
