Hello, I am not the computer expert but i stream regularly playing fortnite, apex, and many other games with tons of other applications, web pages and what not running at the same time.  I have never skipped frames but with the NEW COD Warzone, my stream quality is almost unable to watch for my viewers and i am skipping a lot of frames on streamlabs obs….although my gameplay is solid.  I turned down some of the settings in COD and still no help...does anyone have an answer, or advice, or settings to help so i can get back to streaming?

Hey there @Giresrowgh @TONYSCONES 

 

Unfortunately, Modern Warfare / Warzone is extremely demanding on hardware especially when streaming.

 

Make sure your render resolution is 100, and not above, also make sure Streamlabs OBS is running as an administrator. 

 

At the end of the day unfortunately the game is very demanding and you may need to make sacrifices

Hey Tony,

If you are receiving notifications in Streamlabs OBS in the lower left, does it say that you have skipped, lagged, or dropped frames? If it does say skipped frames, what encoder are you using in Streamlabs OBS? If you have an NVIDIA graphics card and GeForce experience could you do a clean install of your driver? After downloading the driver choose a custom installation https://prnt.sc/r9lhv8 After that select a clean install https://prnt.sc/r9lj1i

Yes, i get notifications of 15% skipped frames every 2 minutes (only in COD Warframe).  Under my output settings it says my encoder is “Hardware (NVENC) (new)”…..I also just downloaded the latest Nividia drivers for my 1070!

i get the same notifications with an RTX 2060 6GB i5 9600k also got the latest drivers

Hi there @TONYSCONES & @cvhunter!

This would then mean that you GPU is used up a great amount when streaming & playing COD: MW at the same time, I would recommend you either do the following:

Lower the graphic settings in COD: MW to see if that can help with reducing the spiked frames. Or

Change the encoder from Hardware to Software in Streamlabs OBS, so that the stream is running via your CPU & not your GPU.

Thanks!

@TheBritishAndy I tried the encoder from hardware to software and still skipping a lot of frames...also lowering the settings to almost the bare minimum did not help either :(

I’m having the exact same issue and I tried the software encoding with no luck either, I also tried lowering graphics for the game to no avail.  

@Giresrowgh Ya i am not quite sure how to fix this problem….my streams run great on fortnite and other games 

Hello , try to set Graphics Render Resolution to 100 if you are using 1080p

Wait for update. They will optimize the game soon. Most of ppl who try stream with single pc, just cant.. 

If anyone is having similar problems….make sure to turn on performance mode.  It makes it so you cant see what your streaming but it did significantly help...although still dropping a good amount of frames, still better!
