I'm trying to set up my steam for high quality without framerate loss or "blurriness" but I can't figure out how. This is where I need your help!
Using Open Broadcast Software to stream to Twitch. These are my settings:
Use CBR: Checked
Enable CBR padding: Checked
Max Bitrate 2500
Bitrate for audio encoding: 128 with AAC codec
Resolution: 1920x1080, downscaled to 1.50 (1280x720)
x264CPU Preset: Ultrafast
Keyframe Interval: 2
Use CFR: Checked
With these settings I can basically run the stream without framerateloss, however it's incredibly low quality considering what I'm aiming for, also, it gets blurry whenever I move around in World of Warcraft.
If I however higher my settings using no downscale (which means 1080p) OR changing my FPS to 60, aswell as playing around with the bitrate, I will get insane amounts of framerate losses and blurriness. It will not affect my gameplay, only the stream.
Help me please!
Where are you located? If you’re playing WoW, you might need a higher bitrate of around 3000 since it’s such a high movement game. Also switch your x264 preset to very fast if you can handle the CPU cost – ultrafast will make your stream look bad.
It might be noted that the quality of your stream is /highly/ dependent on the movement on screen. League of legends 720p will require different bitrates for the same “quality” as World of Warcraft, or an FPS game.
