So my question is who has tried to stream or does stream? I am just starting to do it for fun but I noticed after weeks of fighting with Stream-labs OBS I cant get it to run smooth on X264. On Nvenc it works fine but I am trying to increase quality and the Nvenc on maxwell is not the greatest compared to running medium on x264. So the best I can do on x264 is cpu preset faster at 6mbps for twitch. CPU is at 41% and it stutters video and audio every couple of seconds. Now whats strange is I finally just ran normal old OBS and I can run it all the same settings but at preset cpu at slow. Stream looks a lot sharper and runs fine now slowdowns. So I guess my question is has anyone else had this issue with stream-labs just running worse even though its only using half my cpu? I guess I should mention I have my 2nd computer doing the encoding for my gaming pc. It is all being done through NDI for OBS. The streaming pc is my Xeon 2690 v2 (10 Core CPU). So it is way over the norm to be just a dedicated streaming pc.

    Why are you using Nvenc? x264 looks so much better. What sort of bitrate are you using? Sounds like it's choking on bitrate.

    So I am still working with streamlabs on this problem. So I am using x264 because I have my 2nd pc running my 10 core xeon so plenty of head room. My bit rate is at 6k. I have tried running it from 2.5k to 6k. Still no change also lowering the res down to nothing to lower limits for encoding. So I have fiber gigbit internet and have tested all the servers and I have 10k+ to all servers so that's not it. So this is my exact issue that I have narrowed it down to. So when I am turning streamlabs up in quality with cpu preset streamlabs will not break 20.4% cpu usage no mater what. So the 20.4% usage is with streamlabs it self not overall. My overall cpu usage is 8% before stream labs starts encoding the stream. So this problem persists no matter what i do after very fast preset. I can set streamlabs to placebo preset and it still wont break the 20.4% barrier. So when I use OBS Studio I can stream perfectly fine at slow preset with a total of 49% cpu usage. No frame drops nothing. So my issue is clearly a streamlabs problem and I truly cant figure it out. I have uninstalled it and reinstalled it numerous times. I have closed all background programs and have done all windows 10 know issues with dvr and such. I really am out of ideas. But at this rate I am going to just use streamelements which I have been having a blast with getting all my overlays and such going. Any continuing help I recive I am very willing to keep gettign it working because I hate not being able to fix a what seems to be a silly problem.
