OBS Lags Terribly in Preview


New Member
Hello all. My OBS can't even keep up with YouTube or simple videos. I'm not even streaming. The preview lags very badly and is essentially a slideshow that updates every 5 seconds or so. I have used this exact setup previously in 1080p@60fps with flawless results.

I'll breakdown my setup for clarity:
Windows 10 Home
Ryzen 3800x
2060 Super
Verizon Fios 200up/200down
NightHawk Gigabit Router
All Ethernet wired with Cat 6 or better

Will use in NDI with another Ryzen (2600) build once issue is resolved. I appreciate any advice. Thank you!

I answered my own riddle. HDR was turned on. For some reason, OBS and HDR do not jive well. Once I turned off HDR, stream quality was back to normal.
