Re: Physical Cores And SMT Cores

@Delibra90 

use CBR (never use CRF/CQP for streaming)
custom x264 options: "deblock=-3:2 force-cfr=1"

show me your settings tab - and also what games you want to stream

EDIT:
show me your NotCPUCores settings - while running a stream ;)

PC: R7 2700X @PBO + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
Laptop: R5 2500U @30W + RX 560X (1400MHz/1500MHz) + 16G DDR4-2400CL16 + 120Hz 3ms FS

During the live stream it was more laggy.

i just add in X264 Options:  "deblock=-3:2 force-cfr=1"

So if i want to stream 1920x1080 or 1600x900 buffer size always same 1500?

Twitch OBS settings for 5700xt

Hi, thank you so much for all you're doing for the amd community.

For months now I've been playing with the settings in OBS for a better quality on twitch to absolutely no avail. My issue isn't so much game quality, it's the webcam quality. The game usually looks okay no matter what settings I use but when I encode using the hardware AVC/AMF encoder, my webcam is completely and totally pixelated while any slight movement is happening in the game. I've gone through and tried these settings you've given to others and they don't work. I usually stream in 720p 60fps.

My current build is as follows:

@JinsuTV 

hi - why do you stream with AMD AMF when you have a strong 12C/24T CPU?

use x264 CBR with 6000kbps + 2000kb buffer (on YT(G)) or 4500kbps + 1500kb buffer (on twitch.tv)
720p60 or 720p50 (as i recommend here https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ov1aU0SkWV1UCiI6FTED23qtRUYJl17S)

you can use "medium" "baseline" "none" or "faster" "main" "none" - it will give high quality of stream

when using "baseline" you should add this to custom x264: level=4.1 force-cfr=1 cabac=1 deblock=-3:2 rc-lookahead=10 sync-lookahead=5 aq-mode=1 aq-strength=1.33

AMD AMF needs some more work to be done - its only around 93% quality of x264 while latest NVenc is 98-100% quality of x264

i the googledrive link i posted you can check the settings i posted here - also with webcam

PC: R7 2700X @PBO + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
Laptop: R5 2500U @30W + RX 560X (1400MHz/1500MHz) + 16G DDR4-2400CL16 + 120Hz 3ms FS

@benman2785 

I really appreciate the quick response. Genuinely, thank you.

The 12c/24t CPU is a new addition. Previously I had the Ryzen 7 1700. The CPU was purchased because of the poor quality of the AMD AMF encoder. I've never owned intel or nvidia (since I was able to buy my own computer) and truly, I'm extremely disappointed in the encoder quality on the 5700xt. Compared to it's counterpart, NVENC, it's just awful. 

Anyway, to answer your question as to why I'm interesting in still using the AMF encoder is because the Ryzen 9 3900x runs really hot for a CPU. I currently do stream with it, and recently I've had to add an additional CPU fan to the radiator cooler I have for it. It's helped, immensely. 

Ultimately I just like to have options. It's extremely unfortunate how AMD has essentially disregarded their h.264 encoder for streamers. I REFUSE to pay Nvidia's insane prices. So, to AMD I remain loyal.

Re: Twitch OBS settings for 5700xt

@JinsuTV 

use NotCPUCores
Game on "physical"
OBS on 14,16,18,20,22,24 (6 SMT-Cores)
all other apps on remaining cores

use "medium" "baseline" "none" and custom x264: level=4.1 force-cfr=1 cabac=1 deblock=-3:2 rc-lookahead=10 sync-lookahead=5 aq-mode=1 aq-strength=1.33

do you stream on twitch.tv or Youtube?

PC: R7 2700X @PBO + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS

Re: 720p50 3500kbps twitch.tv OBS

@annihalator 

x264 is better than AMD AMF Encoder! and your 2600 is powerful enough for this

use NotCPUCores
Game on "physical"
OBS on 2,4,8,10 (4 SMT-Cores)
all other apps on remaining cores

use "medium" "baseline" "none" and custom x264: level=4.1 force-cfr=1 cabac=1 deblock=-3:2 rc-lookahead=10 sync-lookahead=5 aq-mode=1 aq-strength=1.33

or "faster" "main" "none" and custom x264: force-cfr=1 deblock=-3:2 rc-lookahead=10 sync-lookahead=5

also check out my latest settings on Youtube (search for Benman2785)
