Hardware encoding Radeon r7 240

Question asked by claycarlino on Jan 1, 2020

I got a computer that came with a Radeon R7 240 Graphics card. I want to use the computer to livestream to youtube. (Not streaming games, just general discussions). I'm setting up OSB Studio and doing experiments to see what settings result in the best quality video, but through the process it looks like my video card may not be capable of encoding video. Is that the case? Do I need a better video card or has this problem been resolved and I just haven't found the answer yet?
