minqp 10 is to low
maxqp 40 is also to low
that is why your bitrate peaks so high!
use 21 and 51
set buffer to 1/2 bitrate with 70-100% initial fullness
use level 4.1 for 900p60
use true resolution : 16:9 set manual 1664x936 (u can check list of true 16:9 resolution )
standrat ! minimum qp = 18 and maximum = 51
bitrate set 5800 remember sound need bitrate 🙂 5800 +128 etc 🙂 twitch have limit 6000!If u dont wana spikes and lags when top streamers online they will be a priority for twitch trafic.Best ond corect way sell amd gpu buy nvidia use nvenc be happy 🙂 maybe then they will start thinking when their production does not meet the 2021 standards.
1664x936 is not needed as 1600x900 works fine when using all partitions - as 900 uses 16x8 or 8x16 ("half"-)macroblocks because 900/24=37,5
Oof, it took me 3 hours to go through all of the replies here. At this point, thx @benman2785 for testing out so much stuff and helping everyone. Would you mind helping another fallen soldier too?
I just build my very first pc together, rx 6900xt and ryzen 5900x full AMD build. I knew amd hardware encoder was not going to be the best for streaming, but upgrading from a laptop (x264 intel i5) and ps4 over elgato hd60s the streaming quality got worse, i couldnt believe it. I am mainly playing cod warzone where i get about 210 fps off stream. When streaming i chose the amd encoder because once i tested out x264 without really changing much settings and my game lagged very hard frames dropped to 120 and stuff. I thought the 5900x could handle streaming without losing much fps or any fps? I know warzone is very cpu limited and the fps sometimes are all over the place (took me days to figure out what to do against stuttering and low fps with such a high tier build). My webcam is very blurry and pixelated when i game, the game itself is pixelated too sometimes. When i watch my friends streaming over rtx 3070 or rtx 2080 the nvenc encoder kinda make everything look so good. As ive followed the posts, theres so much information and so much settings, i dont know which ones are outdated now and which ones still work. Would you consider doing a little recap, maybe for the new people coming in and searching for answers like me too.
At this point i dont even want to stream on the amd encoder, cause its really not making my stream look good. What do i need to do, to stream over cpu without losing much frames and having a better quality (thought the 5900x is able to do so)
Thx and if you dont wanna do it, theres really no need to feel guilty or sth because you already helped so much people, but as far as ive seen they dont have the exact same equipment as i do so i dont know what to do now...
EDIT: I forgot to mention some information.
i want to stream on twitch, i am affiliate, i have about 30mb upload speed, 32 gb of ram, stream 900p60 (or would u recommend else?) yeah did i miss sth?
use x264 burn your cpu or sell amd gpu and the other also does not recommend buying as long as they do not offer a competitive product buy Nvidia be happy 🙂 Fast games and webcam on amd gpu "mission impossible" AMD GPU & QUALITY STREAMS = incompatible things and now 2021 year 🙂
hey - with a Ryzen 5900X you should use x264 - even if you have a RTX3000 GPU - as you will get best quality here
for 99% of games you can use "NotCPUCores" (https://github.com/rcmaehl/NotCPUCores)
set it like this:
900p60 6000kbps + 9000kb buffer (either use 1/2x; 1x; 2x of bitrate)
"faster" or "fast" (depending on the game)
custom x264: level=4.2 cabac=1 8x8dct=1 partitions=i8x8,i4x4,p8x8,p4x4,b8x8,b4x4 ref=4 bframes=2 b-adapt=2 fast-pskip=0 rc-lookahead=30 sync-lookahead=30 me=hex merange=16 subme=6 deblock=-3:2:0 direct=auto aq-mode=3 trellis=0 deadzone-inter=11 deadzone-intra=11 psy-rd=0.15:0.0 weightp=2 weightb=1
Hey big boss and thank you for the really quick answer!
I was just about to try these settings, but notcpucores makes my pc go unresponsive. I go to game, physical cores, type in MODERNWARFARE.EXE, do assign and then my pc just goes unresponsive (3 times in a row now) i go to task manager to restart but it gets stuck in blue screen. Do you know what im doing wrong?
can you try another game? i dont own MW so i cant test it myself.
but i know Metro:Exodus doesnt like NotCPUCores. and some other games too.
I think modern warfare warzone is free. Yeah I tried another game, whenever I click “assign” the commands in the debug menu all go “... access denied/ failed” and my pc goes unresponsive I can’t turn it off I literally have to plug out the power cable. Is there any other application like this? Someone once told me sth about picasso lasso or sth I can’t exactly remember the name. I also tried streaming over cpu today, I had framedrops to 120 and constant 140-160 frames in warzone. The quality was like 727373 times better, no pixelation but it kinda feels dumb to play on 140 Fps when people with 3070s get around 100-140 Fps in warzone while streaming over nvenc and I have killer setup where I should reach over 200fps.
Is there any way to do something against all the pixelation when steaming over amf? Especially my webcam..
and what do you mean with “the game doesn’t like it”? My pc doesn’t like notcpucores at all I think I don’t get it why it goes unresponsive it feels like I’m breaking my system
