Hey Onyx,

If you are having stutters please make sure you download the recent hotfix from NVIDIA and go through this guide for improving stream quality. 

Let us know if that helps!

Hey there @LazyDrunkOnyx 

 

Sorry to hear that! 

You will most likely need to enable an FPS cap if running unlimited, or high FPS, could you also try an alternate encoder?

If using NVENC, try x264, or NVENC New, could you please also provide us with your output FPS, and output resolution?

@ghosteez 

my output fps is 60 and my output resolution is 720, i have 500 down and 500 up, I’ve  used all of the encoders but they all give me stutters. I can’t put my finger on whats causing these stutters. Everything while playing is fine its just the stream that stutters

Hey there @LazyDrunkOnyx 

 

This typically is called “lagged frames” then - your game is using too many resources and limiting the internal Streamlabs OBS internal encoder. Please run Streamlabs OBS as administrator and try limiting your games FPS and see if it persists 

hey @ghosteez 

I’ve tried everything you’ve said but it reduced it by a little but it’s still noticeable. When i got a new GPU this started to happen so i’m not sure what’s going on at this point.

Hey there @LazyDrunkOnyx 

 

What FPS are you playing your games at? If high, like 144, or more, you most likely will need to sacrifice that further for single PC streaming, unfortunately. 

@ghosteez 

i’m playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare, it might be the game because i know it isn’t well optimized so maybe that’s why

Hey there @LazyDrunkOnyx 

 

This is true - what FPS are you running Modern Warfare at? It is very heavy on PC utilization 

@ghosteez 

i have most of my games set to 120 since i evens out while streaming 720 with 60 fps but when it come’s to Modern Warfare everything just messes up. I don’t know if it’s my settings on obs or it’s just my computer.

Hey there @LazyDrunkOnyx 

 

Can you try lowering it slightly, like to 90, and let me know if this changes anything? 

 

Your computer is great, Modern Warfare is just extremely resource heavy. 

Hey @ghosteez 

 

I’ve tried doing what you said but theirs no change. I’ve tried using the other obs but it does it there too. Not sure what to do now. I’ve also tried lowering my game graphics but it does it still.

Hey there @LazyDrunkOnyx 

 

Unfortunately, you may have to try dropping down to 60 FPS as well, but if it happens in Studio as well the issue is not inherently with Streamlabs OBS, just a performance issue with the game. 

Hey @ghosteez 

 

I wanna thank you for trying to help but i think I’ve done everything at this point and i can’t figure out why it stutters like this.

Hi there @LazyDrunkOnyx!

Just one other thing to try out and you can do this in both Streamlabs OBS & OBS Studios, in Settings > Video change your FPS Type to Integer FPS Value & then change your FPS Value to say 120 FPS.

Once you have done that could you try testing streaming COD: MW again to see if that helps with your stutter issue please?

Thanks!
