I’ve submitted a ticket, I’ve spent countless hours doing Google searches and trying those suggestions, and I still cannot get my stream to show up clearly.
The ticket submission response was to use Simple Output Mode, NVENC new and 6000 bitrate to resolve my issue, of which it did not. In my ticket I made it clear I’ve tried all encoders, bitrates up to 20000 (I have 20MB upload speed), followed the Key Interval and max B frames required for Facebook Gaming, and nothing works. I’m using a test stream to troubleshoot this so my max is limited to 720p by Facebook, my main account has access to 1080p. When standing still, everything is fine. When I move, the stream almost looks like a Colorblind test because of the grain.
I’ve tried upping my CPU usage in x264, I’ve tried having both Canvas and Scaled set at the same resolution of 720p… and absolutey nothing is removing the grainy crap that is my livestream.
I even made sure to have the C + + files installed that was recommended by Slobs.

I’ve been troubleshooting this since 9:30am, not exaggerating. Nothing is removing this grainy crap, and I’m about to just give up on streaming, as this is very defeating.

Just to make sure as you said everything started working after you changed the encoder from Software to Hardware and downed the resolution to 720p, did you also trying streaming at 720p with the Software encoder as well to see if it was still able to produce the stream to your channel without it looking grainy at all?
I did change the encoder to NVENC new, and viewers said the stream looked just fine. I did not try streaming with x264 as I had already restarted the stream 3 times and people were already getting irritated by the Notifications. At this point, I’m already in the market for a dedicated streaming PC and an Elgato stream card so I can do [email protected] without having to worry about this anymore lol.
