Question / Help Severe FPS drops all of the sudden!


New Member
So before I had no problem with recording 1080p 60 fps. But randomly when I would record games like cuisine royale, pubg,etc I now have severe fps drops like from 60 to 40 -30 and it says "Encoding overload" It would make sense but I never had this before. More info if needed. I havent been able to upload a real gaming video in like 1 month because of it.

Hello there
Please send the log's URL here so I can help you.

1) Restart OBS
2) Start your stream/recording for about 30 seconds. Make sure you replicate any issues as best you can, which means having any games/apps open and captured, etc.
3) Stop your stream/recording.
4) Select Help > Log Files > Upload Current Log File. Copy the URL and paste it here.
(Note: If you do not see an URL, you will need to update OBS Studio to version 22+)
