OBS Windows 10 Anniversary Update

It's a bit clunky and confusing to get it work especially if you have a laptop (which most of them have dual-gpu).
After Windows 10 Anniversary Update, OBS is totally not functional. Reports say that crashes a lot, in my experience that didn't happen however the local recordings are worthless, even with low bitrate, low resolution and recording with one of each codecs (h.265 and QSV) the result is the same: no in-game lag but the file ending up with extremely low file size and very choppy as if the game was played in 10fps.

If you have Windows 7 or Windows 10 before Anniversary Update then go for it.

Note: I recorded the same game with same settings with other recording software and the results are what you expect, so definitely there's a problem with OBS Studio AND OBS Classic.


Ditch Windows 10, dude.

It sucks. Revert back to the last stable version of Windows -- 7

I was told by AlternativeTo.com that this was a good Fraps alternative for Linux, but there isn't a Linux version (or even a Windows version) available to download. :(


I use OBS on Linux, I think I installed it via their ppa:


I can double check in a few hours when I get back to my obs machine, and make sure thats the ppa I used.
