Switch greatly affecting system load


New Member
Whenever I activate my video source for my Switch, the log starts to get filled up really quickly, taking up a lot of system load, most of the time even hanging my OBS whenever I start streaming. I use a cheap capture card and this is what keeps showing up in the log:

18:46:04.757: warning: Found EOI before any SOF, ignoring
18:46:04.757: fatal: No JPEG data found in image
18:46:04.757: Error decoding video

Here is the link to the full log if needed

Why are you using
18:45:44.385: YUV mode: 709/Full
instead of Partial?

I'm wondering if your system is overloaded, and that is why there is the issue? or could be USB Root Hub issue? or something else entirely
Hopefully you are already monitoring hardware resource (CPU, GPU, RAM, Disk I/O, etc) utilization [for ex. using Task manager’s Performance tab and/or Resource Monitor] to see if your system is being maxed out with your settings https://obsproject.com/wiki/General-Performance-and-Encoding-Issues and https://obsproject.com/wiki/GPU-overload-issues
