Question / Help Video Capture Device Pauses


New Member
(CONTEXT): We are using OBS to stream our church service to Facebook live. It is capturing the live video with an external camera (PTZOptics 20x 3G-SDI) and then using display capture to include slides in the stream. We also are recording the sermon portion while it streams.

(PROBLEM): Around 11:04 (for reference in the log) the video capture pauses/freezes. I right click properties on the video capture source, deactivate, and then activate and the video capture works for the rest of the time.

I am not sure if we are over taxing the computer and/or have some configuration set wrong. We had some similar issues the week before, but were doing a lot more (showing pre-recorded video).

Attached is the log from last Sunday. Thanks for the help.
