I’m brand new to OBS and Streamlabs but not to live streaming. Been doing that now for about 15 years on just about every platform, software, and hardware imaginable.
For the past two days I’ve been setting up this software to stream live to all of my social platforms through Restream. It seems like this new Mac software crashes every few minutes, always as I am adding, changing, or removing an element to my OBS scene.
I’ve been running it on 3 different Macs. (#1 Quad core iMac with 32GB of RAM. #2 12 Core Mac Pro with 64GB RAM. #3 Quad Core MacBook Pro with 16GB of RAM)
All are running OS Mojave and are up to date on it. All of them are experiencing the same intermittent crashing while performing the same tasks.
The only piece of add-on hardware that seems to have a problem with this software is a $100 USB 3.0 capture card that I’m using to pull in Skype, Zoom, and WebEx sessions from a laptop PC. Other than that every flavor of Blackmagic capture device or card that I use is mostly playing well with Streamlabs OBS. The crashing was happening before I added the USB capture card. SO, I know that’s not the issue.
I’m not having these issues with the open source version of OBS. So, it’s got to be this new Streamlabs software. With all of the add-ons and the potential that this version of OBS has, I’d really like to stick with it. Just need to find out what may be causing all of the crashing.
Can you help? Thanks!
