Warning Old Version (26.1.0)
You are running an old version of OBS Studio (26.1.0). Please update to version 27.0.1 by going to Help -> Check for updates in OBS or by downloading the latest installer from the downloads page and running it.
Warning Windows 10 1909 (EOL)
You are running Windows 10 1909, which has not been supported by Microsoft since May 2021. We recommend updating to the latest Windows release to ensure continued security, functionality, and compatibility.
Warning Non-Standard Framerate
Framerates other than 30fps or 60fps may lead to playback issues like stuttering or screen tearing. Stick to either of these for better compatibility with video players. You can change your OBS frame rate in Settings -> Video.
Info Not Admin
OBS is not running as Administrator. This can lead to OBS not being able to Game Capture certain games. If you are not running into issues, you can ignore this.
Info No Output Session
Your log contains no recording or streaming session. Results of this log analysis are limited. Please post a link to a clean log file.
To make a clean log file, please follow these steps:

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. Send that link via this troubleshooting tool or whichever support chat you are using.
Info Windows 10 Game Mode
In Windows 10 versions 1809 and newer, we recommend that "Game Mode" be enabled for maximum gaming performance. Game Mode can be enabled via the Windows 10 "Settings" app, under Gaming > Game Mode.
