Game Crashing When Streaming & Recording with OBS

Post by GameMaster » Sat Mar 24, 2018 7:37 pm

I've been trying to solve this problem for so long and I finally found the fix. I've been using x264 encoder in OBS and because it is the CPU that is being used I can't really record and stream with high quality. If I use the other encoder NVENC H.264 which is the GPU my game is always crashing, the game I'm streaming by the way is Fortnite.

I've tried changing many settings in OBS like trying different bitrate but nothing worked. Finally I found out that turning off Nvidia Shadowplay fixes the issue. Nvidia Shadowplay is a Nvidia Graphics card feature wherein you can save highlights on your game like kills and wins.

I don't know if this works with other games that are crashing when streaming with OBS but for Fornite Battle Royale it worked like a magic for me.
