OBS streaming Mint 18.3

Post by charvey »

I dont understand why i can stream to twitch or youtube with OBS studio in Windows, but cant stream with linux mint. Ive adjusted every setting i can think of and just cant make it work. Windows uses the default settings when OBS is installed and streams just fine. Linux will attempt to stream but drops frame rate to 0 or chops the video and audio to the point you cant watch it. i have the latest version installed, i have ffmpeg installed, i have no errors of any kind. I record desktop, open gl games full screen, i record my mic and desktop with no issues. just cant live stream . I love OBS in linux for recording my game play and doing tutorials for Linux but want to live stream. any help ?
