How do I hide OBS while recording?

How do I hide OBS while recording?

New Member. Following your steps, I also found its possible to hide an OBS window using “Hide” RMC option for OBS icon in system tray, then “Start Recording” and “Stop Recording” RMC options.

How do I fix my AMD black screen?

If you’re having black screen issues on your Radeon GPU, it’s probably a good idea to try the latest driver—you can download it from within the Radeon Software utility, or from AMD’s website. AMD also suggests trying a clean installation of the driver.

How do I change my OBS to high performance?

Here are some ways you can reduce resource utilization and, hopefully, make both OBS and your programs run faster while encoding:

  1. Downscale your output resolution.
  2. Lower your frame rate.
  3. Change your x264 preset.
  4. Try Quicksync, AMF, or NVENC.
  5. Check your sources.
  6. Upgrade your hardware.

What bitrate should I record at OBS?

4000 Kbps to 6000 Kbps

Does streaming and recording use more CPU?

Recording only uses more cpu than streaming if you’re using more cpu-intensive settings for recording.

Does higher bitrate use more CPU?

Bitrate does have an influence on cpu, since you basically convert more data per second. But it’s pretty minor even on lower end cpu’s unless you go for extremes (in the 100000’s). Preset, resolution and fps are of a much bigger influence on your processor.

Does CPU matter for streaming?

If you have a powerful CPU, CPU encoding is better. The recommended number of cores for streaming is 6 so if you have 6 cores you can easily stream your game play. If you have the new Nvidia Turing cards I will suggest you use GPU encoding.

Which CPU is best for streaming?

Best CPU for streaming and gaming on a budget

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600.
  • Intel Core i5-10400F.
  • Which is The Better Choice?
  • Intel Core i5-10600K.
  • Intel Core i7-10700K.
  • AMD Ryzen 7 5800X.
  • AMD Ryzen 9 3950X.
  • AMD Threadripper.

Is Intel or AMD better?

If you want to buy high-end laptops or desktops, One should prefer Intel based processors because performance in this segment is way better than AMD….Difference between Intel and AMD :

Intel AMD
More efficient than AMD. Less efficient than Intel.
Runs cooler for longer duration. Heats up faster.
Faster than AMD. Not very fast compared to Intel.

Is Intel or AMD better for streaming?

In general, streaming benefits from more cores and threads. This means higher core count means a better streaming performance. Since ryzen has usually better multi-core performance AND better price/core, the answer would be yes, AMD Ryzen tend to be better than intel when streaming.

Is 4 cores enough for streaming?

4 Cores is not recommended for streaming. For gaming 4 cores is manageable, but for streaming the availability of more cores can ease the load on the CPU and help with multitasking. A recommended amount is 6 cores at the least, but can also depend on what CPU you buy too.

Is 4 cores enough for video editing?

Four or more cores should be satisfactory for most video and effects programs. Most post-production software requires a dual-core processor. A quad-core processor is going to be better suited for most video work and a quad-core running at 2.5GHz or faster will give you optimal performance.

Is quad core enough for gaming 2020?

This is pretty straight forward;yes, quad core is “sufficient” for gaming in 2019 and 2020. Part of the problem here is that 4 cores is probably more than enough with enough instructions per cycle, but the better processors with better performance tend to have 6 cores or more now.

Is CPU or GPU more important for streaming?

Whatever PC you are using to play games, prioritize the GPU. Whatever PC you are using to encode your stream, prioritize the CPU. If you are going to game and stream on the same system, you want a high end CPU (more threads the better usually) combined with a high end GPU.

Do I need 32GB RAM for streaming?

Streaming takes barely any RAM and you got plenty of it for streaming with 16GB. For streaming alone 32GB would make no sense. Only if you do RAM heavy tasks on the side it would be beneficial and no, games don’t count as that. 16GB in general is a pretty nice amount to have as a side note.

What is the AMD equivalent to i5?

Intel Coer i5 8250U AMD Ryzen 5 2500U
CPU cores 4 cores 4 cores
Simeltaneous threads 8 threads 8 threads
Boost clock speed 3.4GHz 3.6GHz
cTDP 15W 15W

What computer specs do I need for live streaming?

Minimum Laptop with Hardware Encoding

Hardware Component Minimum Laptop Specification (with Hardware Encoding)
Processor with integrated graphics 4 (Quad) Core Intel i5 – 6th Generation or better
Memory 8GB or better
Graphics Quick Sync enabled CPU or NVIDIA NVENC enabled GPU
Storage 500GB HDD (SSD preferred) or better

How much RAM do I need for live streaming?

To stream games at HD 720p or 1080p, 16GB RAM is enough for you. This applies to both single and dedicated streaming PCs. 16GB RAM is adequate to run more graphic intensive PC games too, along with HD live streaming. Streaming games at 4K requires more power, and 32 Gigabytes of RAM should be more than enough.

Do I need a dedicated graphics card for live streaming?

You do not need a dedicated GPU (graphics card) for a streaming PC. The CPU does all the encoding. However, you’ll need onboard graphics built into the CPU So you can hook your PC up to a monitor.

How many GHz do I need for streaming?

Hardware encoding is much faster and more efficient. If you want to stream a game at 30 FPS with 1080p resolution at a decent level of quality, you would need to dedicate an entire core of an Intel CPU running at 3 GHz or higher. If you’re using a dual core CPU, that’s 50 percent of your CPU.

Is 4 core 8 threads enough for streaming?

For gaming, you will need a minimum quad-core which is 4 CPU cores and eight or more for the games which are coded for higher threads. For streaming get the CPU processor with logical core and which supports GPU performance to get the best gaming experience and gaming PC configuration.

Can you stream with an i3?

You don’t have to worry about streaming on the i3, but what you do have to worry about is the bandwidth your ISP provides. You could run into some problems if you’re trying to stream HD video with a 1 MB/s upload speed.

Can my PC handle streaming?

A good computer Although there are a few exceptions I’ll outline below, you’ll likely be doing most of your streaming from a gaming laptop or gaming desktop PC. As far as specs go, Twitch recommends having at least an Intel Core i5-4670 processor (or its AMD equivalent), 8GB of RAM and Windows 7 or newer.
