Re: 720p50 3500kbps twitch.tv OBS

kev2021

1. twitch DOES NOT allow 6000kbps for 720p60; only 4500kbps can be used for that // maybe stretch it to 4800kbps
2. set custom buffer to: 1200kb  or 1600kb

3. custom x264: level=3.1 direct=auto partitions=all deblock=-3:2 b-adapt=1 me=umh merange=8 subme=4 rc-lookahead=10 sync-lookahead=5 trellis=0 weightp=2 weightb=1 aq-mode=1 aq-strength=1.33 threads=6 sliced_threads=0 no-mbtree=0 force-cfr=1
4. "medium" "main" "none"
5. run it only on SMT cores! use NotCPUCores to run game on all physical cores and Streamlabs on cores 4,6,8,10 && all other remaining processes on remaining SMT cores (there is a video on my channel)

if you need more help you can pm me in german

Re: 720p50 3500kbps twitch.tv OBS

Hi again! Unfortunately it doesn't help to reduce lags and smooth the image.

As for boosting RAM - tried to boost up to 2933MHz (the highest my MB supports) CL 16-17-16-36 with Ryzen DRAM Calc but smth goes wrong and while starting PC it falls down to default 2133MHz CL 15-15-15-36. Returned to xmp 2666MHz, CL 16-18-18-35. Memory is running in dual for sure.
As for the notCPUcores - tried to start and allocate cores as you recommended - render lags became 25% and coding lags increased up to 5% in apex.
seems like i made smth wrong

Re: 720p50 3500kbps twitch.tv OBS

are you sure you set "Rendering Device" to iGPU?
btw - in Apex i think it is overwriting core affinity - so NotCPUCores wont work there

what other programms are running? as you are pretty low on available ressources you should ONLY run Game and OBS // no browser, no discord etc; also make sure to completelly disable Windows Defender etc

Re: 720p50 3500kbps twitch.tv OBS

Hi Ben!

I am in need of your knowledge!

RIG: 

R5 3600

MOBO: Gigabyte ab350 Gaming 3

RAM: 16GB(8X2) 3200Mhz

GPU: GTX 1070 8GB

I play Apex Legends, Warzone and Fortnite mostly. I have a 170hz monitor and I'd like to stream with "good quality" but my main problem is the game's performance. I get a lot of fps drops and input lag.

Any settings you'd recommend me?

Re: hi, can help me too?

@xuczin 
i cant help you with NVenc (as i know to little about it)
but with a Ryzen 2600X @4GHz you should be able to use the settings i posted before and run the game on 6 physical cores and OBS on 4 SMT-Cores Smiley Wink

also "high" is usually for recording and not streaming // better would be "baseline" (that is actually for streaming) or "main" (that maybe can be used for streaming)

ps: currently i stream for YouTube with 1080p50 @12000kbps + 3000kb buffer "faster" "baseline" "none" x264: deblock=-3:2 rc-lookahead=10 sync-lookahead=5 force-cfr=1
pps when only streaming 720p50 you could use better motionestimation to improve quality - but in 1080p50 this will maybe only work for Ryzen4000 or Ryzen5000 (when done on SMT)

Re: 720p50 3500kbps twitch.tv OBS

hey lifemagana

you could use "NotCPUCores" to run the game on your 6 Physical cores and OBS on 4 SMT Cores (and all other programms on the remaining 2 SMT cores)

i have a YT video on my channel for that (Benman2785)

you could also try to lower ingame settings and use NVenc (but i dont know how to set it up best - as my last Nvidia GPU is 25 years old)

Thanks for all your help in this thread.

I have looked through most of your videos and replies on this thread, but am not sure what I should choose to get the best bang for my buck.  I am running a 2 PC setup over NDI. I have had issues with things still being pixelated. I am currently trying to get the best quality out of my stream.

I would like to push my streaming PC to the max for quality purposes (OBS is the only thing it is used for)

Streaming PC Specs:

  • CPU: AMD FX-8350
  • GPU: Radeon RX 470
  • RAM: 16GB

Gaming PC Specs:

  • CPU: i7-6700k
  • GPU: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080
  • RAM: 16GB

Internet: 200/20 (getting 1GB/1GB soon)

 

I am currently running x264 on both and have some mix and matches of you settings. I am just wondering what my best options would be. Once again, I appreciate all the help you have given everyone in this thread and all the work you put in to help.

Re: Thanks for all your help in this thread.

@BrockJP 

i never worked with a second pc just for streaming

but a FX-8350 can only do x264 "veryfast" "main" - that is not that great

i would considering selling your system (maybe except 1080) and buy a Ryzen 5800X with a nice B550 or midrange x570 + 4x 8GB DDR4-3600CL16.
with that system you can stream 1080p60 with "fast" or "faster" "baseline" or "main" and have up to 20% better quality than with your second stream pc. and your games would run faster too Smiley Tongue
