Hi Zenyeti, 

If chat is lagging your computer, can you try lowering your bitrate in Streamlabs OBS and in-game graphics settings and see if that helps? I would also suggest you try enabling performance mode in Stremlabs by right-clicking in the margins of your editor window. 


Hi :)

I have the same problem. When ever i get a chat message on streamlabs my game (Fortnite) lags. The recent patch of streamlabs didnt help. Neither did the last patch of Fortnite. Besides that i get micro lags on EVERY game whil streamslabs is open. I always have to enable the perfomance mode to end the stutter. Any idead what can cause that? I have tried every bitrate, every resolution and streamlabs is used as administrator of course.

Thanks for every advice you can give!


I just remembered that i recently turned on the cloudbot. May this cause the lagging problems when users chat in your stream?
