OBS only records audio of applications opened before it


New Member
I use OBS to stream but also to record podcasts. My audio settings are fine as far as I can tell reading other support questions, but if I open OBS before Discord, or switch games in the middle of a stream for examples - the mixer will show that it hears the audio, but won't bother to record it or broadcast it. I've lost multiple hours of recording due to this glitch and haven't found anyone else with this problem. Would love the help so I can quit worrying about it constantly.
