Please correct me if I am posting on the wrong site (this seemed the best place to put it)

So I was setting up OBS studio for recording my gameplay of MC but when I pressed record it crashed. I tried QSV and x264 and they worked. So it was just NVENC. I have no idea what is going on but I really want to record, I heard NVENC is the best encoder. Here is my log: pastebin.com

  • What video card do you have? Possibly it does not support NVENC, but we'd need to know what card you have to determine that. – SevenSidedDie Dec 10 '16 at 9:56
  • Shouldn't this be a better match for SuperUser ? – Karlyr Dec 10 '16 at 13:41
  • Otherwise, try with obs software. Studio has a pretty interface and everything but this also tend to grab more processor and can also create crashes. – Karlyr Dec 10 '16 at 13:43

    NVENC is obviously NOT the best encoder because it crashes your computer. Just use whatever works, and when you upload it to Youtube, it gets re-encoded anyways. – Nelson Dec 12 '16 at 3:27
