Question / Help Obs taking 90% of my CPU uses


New Member
I getting back into streaming and I switch from StreamLab Obs to Obs and I was liking it. on 05/20/2019 I added some overlays, transition and updated obs (To help improve my streaming game). Then the next day on 05/21/2019 I go to stream and my game is lagging, I looked at my CPU uses and it was taking 90% percent of my CPU... I ended up hiding all my sources from my scenes and now got it down to 50%.

Did you make sure, that those "hidden" sources are not only invisible, but also unloaded?
At least those webm video File will still be running, even if not shown:
"close_when_inactive: no"
