Critical Max Audio Buffering
Audio buffering hit the maximum value. This is an indicator of very high system load, will affect stream latency, and may even cause individual audio sources to stop working. Keep an eye on CPU usage especially, and close background programs if needed.

Occasionally, this can be caused by incorrect device timestamps. Restart OBS to reset buffering.

Source affected (potential cause): fondo awua
Warning Old Version (27.0.1)
You are running an old version of OBS Studio (27.0.1). Please update to version 27.1.0 by going to Help -> Check for updates in OBS or by downloading the latest installer from the downloads page and running it.
Info Windows 10 2004 (OK)
You are running Windows 10 2004, which will be supported by Microsoft until December 2021.
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 Dynamic Bitrate
Dynamic Bitrate is enabled. Instead of dropping frames when network issues are detected, OBS will automatically reduce the stream quality to compensate. The bitrate will adjust back to normal once the connection becomes stable. In some (very specific) situations, Dynamic Bitrate can get stuck at a low bitrate. If this happens frequently, it is recommended to turn off Dynamic Bitrate in Settings -> Advanced -> Network.
