Question / Help Starting the output failed


New Member
Hello, I am trying to do some streaming tests on Twitch so that I can stream sometime but I ran into an issue a few minutes ago and I have no idea whats wrong. I set my stream to 1080p 30fps and it let me stream and it worked well so I went to try 60fps and it gave me this error:
"Starting the output failed. Please check the log for details. Note: If you are using the NVENC or AMD encoders, make sure your video drivers are up to date."
I am running the latest drivers.
Anything above 30fps gives me this error. Help would be appreciated.

PC Specs:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate
CPU: Intel i5 - 6300HQ @ 2.30GHz, 3.20GHz Turbo
GPU: Integrated - Intel HD Graphics 530 | Dedicated - Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M
RAM: 2x8GB Hynix DDR4 2133MHz

It says that certain modules can't be found but they are still there.

Go into the nvenc encoder settings and set level from 4.1 to auto.
And don't change settings from their default to something else, unless you know what it will do and you need to change the setting.
