OBS, short for Open Broadcaster Software, is one of the most popular streaming and game recording programs, with various presets and customization settings. It is a powerful and free video editing tool that has great support and is compatible with Twitch.



As mentioned before, certain third-party streaming programs might conflict with you OBS, such as Discord and NVIDIA Overlay. Hence, you should check whether these similar recording programs are running in the background.

The Quicksync encoder is as good as NVENC for recording, providing you set it up correctly: use ICQ as the rate control and set the ICQ quality value between 20 (better quality, larger files) and 23 (diminished quality, smaller files).

The multitasking and media rendering involved in game recording and streaming needs a solid processor with 6 or 8 cores: 7th to 9th generation Intel i5 or i7 or a mid-range AMD, such as the 3700X model, will be more than enough.

Also, OBS is one of the few streaming and recording programs that really make use of your GPU. But an old GPU will be more of an obstacle than a benefit for good streaming because it will bottleneck your CPU. So, upgrading your GPU might be another good solution to the encoding overload issue.

The sound of classic British EQ is absolutely legendary and has enhanced many a great recording. Emulating this classic British design, the Solar 69 EQ adds definition to kick drums, shapes electric guitars, and adds shimmer to acoustic guitars and vocals, without sacrificing body.

If you're going to archive the recording or are concerned about file size, re-encode it losslessly again, but with a slower preset. Note that since the initial recording was lossless, and the re-encode is lossless too, no quality loss is introduced in this process in any way.

OBS Studio is one of the most popular video recording and live streaming software programs. As a video recording application, OBS Studio takes up a lot CPU when working. Many people have reported that they got "Encoding overloaded! Consider turning down video settings or using a faster encoding preset" error from OBS Studio when the program runs quite slowly or fails to encode videos. Actually, this issue is related to high CPU usage. To fix this problem, you can try the solutions below.

OBS has a certain system requirement for lag-free screen recording and streaming. If your computer doesn't work well with OBS, it's time to get a lightweight screen recorder (opens new window), which takes less CPU usage to get a high-quality recording.

If the above solutions cannot solve your problem, maybe it is time for you to leave OBS and have a try at other screen recording tools. FonePaw Screen Recorder (opens new window)is an excellent screen recorder which can satisfy your various needs of screen recording. It has a simple and clean user interface which makes it easy to use.

With this tool, you can record games (opens new window), desktop and any other screen activity s in high quality without bothered by "encoding overloaded" error anymore. What's more, this recorder enables you to add annotations, highlight mouse cursor, enable webcam in screen recordings. You can also set a timer for the recorder to schedule a recording (opens new window) or end a recording automatically.

Step 3: Customize your settings. You can go to Preferences to set the quality and the frame rate of the output file. Besides, in Preferences > Output, the option Enable hardware acceleration can help to reduce the CPU resource the app needs when recording.

HD24 is built exclusively for the purpose of recording music instead of data, resulting in remarkable stability and performance. HD24 enables engineers to record up to 24 tracks of high-resolution 24-bit recording at 44.1 and 48 kHz sample rates.

These reference clips are recordings of a speaker that you provide to guide speech generation. These clips are used to determine many properties of the output, such as the pitch and tone of the voice, speaking speed, and even speaking defects like a lisp or stuttering. The reference clip is also used to determine non-voice related aspects of the audio output like volume, background noise, recording quality and reverb.

@XfinityEthan Thanks for responding. I recorded a few programs last night and all of them had the same issue. It didn't seem to be TV network specific, since I had the same issue on NBC, ABC, and FOX programs. In all cases, the Smart Resume feature resumes between 30 and 45 seconds ahead of where it should. I've had issues in the past where one particular program got all screwed up with the resume window all out of whack, but the current issue has been consistent on every recording for the past week or so, all of them off by about the same amount.

@JP98683 I live in Portland, OR, so that makes sense if our whole region is experiencing the same problem. @XfinityMichaelC asked me to message my info to Support so that they could look into the problem further. But I haven't heard anything back from them yet. And I don't think the problem is fixed yet, though I haven't watched a new recording today (too busy with baseball playoffs).

Thus far Xfinity has not responded to a cause or solution of the issue. One thing I did do was go into settings and toggle the smart resume (i.e. turn it off and then back on). This seemed to help on some more recent recordings but I can't tell for sure if it actually fixed anything. I may have just been viewing a program where the issue wasn't as pronounced. I'll wait a while to see if the toggle actually resolved anything. My suspicion is that Xfinity did an update to their software and it threw off the timing on the smart resume feature. This issue only surfaced about 2 to 3 months ago on my system.

When re-compressing a video, Handbrake first has to decompress the video. Since DVD, BluRay, etc use lossy compression, some of the details got lost when the DVD or BluRay was created by the manufacturer or your recording device. Decompressing the video will not bring back this loss.

You hack ZM. Use a filter which will take recordings from a specifiedrange and create a video for all matches. Then you make a filter that will delete the events which have already had videos created.

The synchronization issue may because of the CRF value. On one hand, you're using ultrafast as a setting. On the other, your CRF value is low enough where it requires significant processing. Maybe recording losslessly on the first run and re-encoding afterwards can fix this?

I hope this helps you a bit. Unfortunately, ffmpeg is still pretty bad at recording because of audio/video sync issues In the end, there will always be sync issues after a while, so I suggest you restart ffmpeg once in a while. I opened a bug on their tracker a while ago about similar issues. Never got any attention, no comment, not even moved from new to open. They need to fix the input buffer size in a way they always grab exactly N frames of video and audio. They seem to use some timecodes but it looks like the muxer often fails to resync them back. I'd fix it myself, but ffmpeg is way too big for me to find what I need, especially for a bug that seem to have existed forever and still not being fixed or even addressed.

Assuming I'm getting audio on-the-fly (from pulseaudio or alsa) it won't work.And it's not a pulseaudio problem or alsa. I tested same recording scenario with VLC and it worked in perfect sync for 12 hours. If anybody interested here are vlc parameters I used:

Here we have a painstakingly emulated version of a four-track tape recorder from Aberrant DSP for Mac/PC, which will be a familiar concept for anyone with experience of recording guitars, drums and vocals back in the day. The hand-drawn GUI also helps take us back to a time when hours could be spent filling in song names and creating artwork to go with the listening experience. 041b061a72
