This is my stream, I'll be playing for a while, and you can see the quality for yourself. http://sv.twitch.tv/gurk92
I was around long before OBS
It's game capture while being one of the highest performing screen capture methods still makes you lose ~30-50% of your FPS for a 1920x1080, 60fps stream of sc2 and most dx9 games (last i checked, and that's not about what CPU usage reads in task manager) Have you got any benchmarks i can check or reference for a max army fight w/ extreme while running 1920x1080 60fps veryfast stream? I'm actually very interested in this, if you could pass fraps benchmark of a time period (like 20 through 22 minutes on x player's camera) while streaming it and giving VOD link. There's not enough data out there. I think you'd be surprised too, and i'm not out to kill everyone or pass around false information
I'd love if 1920x1080, 60fps stream with maxed physics and everything could hold >60fps ingame, i think you'll find yourself dropping to like the 30's though if you test it, i know what "the game no longer feels like **** at times so it must be running great" feels like, but it's still not 60-120+fps all the time (:Edited by Cyro999 - 8/3/13 at 12:59pm
