Stream bitrate goes to 0 when display capture is visible - Youtube


New Member
Stream starts with no problem on youtube since you do not show your display. I tried with game capture and image capture and both worked fine, but as soon as I click to show my screen the stream bitrate drops to 0 and youtube closes it. Have no ideia why, but it works just fine on twitch this issue just happend on youtube and only when my display capture is visible.

I saw on log that OBS receives a FD_CLOSE when display capture is visible, but I can't tell if this is a Youtube problem, a client side problem or a bug in the software.

15:11:43 - Clicked start stream button (camera visible, game capture visible and camera frame visible)
15:12:22 - Set display capture to visible
And then the bitrate drops to 0.

PS. Tried with only the notebook monitor too, same problem.

Game capture and window capture don't work either, sorry for not testing it properly.
The moment any of them starts actually displaying somethig the bitrate goes to 0.
