Webcam blurr when streaming

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Good day all,

 

Couldn't find an area specific for streaming, and since pc gaming comes closest, i figured i'd post here.

 

So, friend of mine is experience an issue, where during streaming his cam blurrs out, like it suddenly drops resolution.

He experiences this issue both with a C922 and a Streamcam. Both directly connected to the mainboard eliminating any types of hubs.

Tested it with both OBS and SLOBS (running in admin mode). Have adjusted both playing resolution from 1440p to 1080p, as setting cam from 1080@60 to 480@30 and any cam setting in between. Used Nvidia Broadcast, logitech's own software and directly feeding the source into the streaming software.

 

Furthermore, we have tested it with both Nvenc new as with H264, with H264 game screen starts to pixelate when moving. It happens when streaming and in local recording. Adjusted bitrate between 4500 and 6000. Bitrate in dashboard stays stable.

 

During recording / streaming, there is not a single core hitting 100% only hitting 70% max. GPU is roughly around the 50 - 60% range.

Issue does not happen when streaming Xbox gameplay thru capture card.

 

Drivers are up to date, AMD power schedule is selected. Verified that Mem is indeed running at 3200mhz, no OC applied, 

 

His system specs:

Ryzen 3900X

RTX 2080TI

32GB corsair CL16 @3200mhz

Asus ROG Strix X570

Elgato HD60 pro capture card (for Xbox gaming)

 

USB connected devices:

Keyboard / Mouse

Microphone

Xbox controller dongle

Steamcam

C922

Wireless dongle headset

 

Any more suggestions are welcome, we're at a loss!

SLOBs and OBS are basicially the same thing. So I wouldn't count the other as a 100% way of "trying different software".  Can you try fsplit or another? I pretty much help streamers on a daily basis with stuff like this. If you want you can have them add me on discord and we can talk over chat as it's way easier than this

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Seems to have been solved, lowering the streaming resolution and lowering the bitrate.

Just to make sure I read correctly, same thing was happening while recording too? Or was the recording just with certain codec? If so, then the reason might be server-side compression/encoding. And with recording the write speed of the drive.

 

Also moved to Programs, Apps and Websites. Reason is that streaming is more often about software and services than games being streamed.
