Streaming console games to twitch(Encoding Overloaded)

2 posts in this topic

I have an windows 10 asus gaming laptop with amd a10,10 compute cores,4cpu+6gpu,radeon grahpics, and quadcore x4. Ill try to test my settings.  I stream via OBS studio since its less demanding than classic,I stream console games and have activate twitch alerts,overlays,cam and elgato hd as sources but when i try to stream via obs immediately a few seconds or minutes later i get an error msg on the bottom of obs saying" encoding overloaded, consider turning down video settings or use a faster encoding preset.Cause when this happens my video is not "in sync with the games audio and on twitch the stream stutters/ moves in slow motion while you hear the game audio do that as well.


Output settings. 1. Output mode: simpel. 2.Bitrate for video: 2500. 3. bitrate for audio: 160. 4. the box to activate advanced encoder settings is filled in 
5. encoder pre-setting(higher=less CPU) is at: VERY FAST. 6. settings for custom encoder is empty. 7.Recording quality: same as stream. 8.recording format: mp4(used to be at flv). 
 
Video settings: Base(canvas) resolution: 1920x1080. Output(scaled)resolution: 1280x720. downscalefilter:bitcubic(sharpened scaling,16 samples).Ordinary framerate values: 30

Any step by step how to fix this?

here are links to my twitch,you can clearly see that my video is not in sync with audio i,e the video moves in slow motion and audio does not play properly normal: https://www.twitch.tv/samshepardgaming/v/60573812

It's one of two things:

1. You're laptop CPU just can't handle it, even though it's a gaming laptop, streaming works completely different and is a lot more CPU dependent than games. So if this is the case you're going to have to upgrade. A way to test this is to get any software that monitors CPU activity and have it up while attempting to stream, if it hits higher than 70% usage then it's struggling. 

2. It's your internet connection, mostly your upload. Don't know your internet providers so I can't really advise you, but you should have at least 3mb actual upload (My provider is giving me 20 upload, but the actual upload is more like 14-16). Do a speed test and check.

If both of these are in order, then I'd recommend checking your laptop while your streaming, it may just be the capture card that is struggling to sync video and keep the frame rate stable.
