What are the best OBS settings?
Bitrate Rule of Thumb
- For 720p video at 30 frames per second, we recommend 1,500 to 4,000 kbps.
- For 720p video at 60 frames per second, we recommend 2,500 to 5,000 kbps.
- For 1080p video at 30 frames per second, we recommend 3,000 to 6,000 kbps.
- For 1080p video at 60 frames per second, we recommend 4,500 to 9,000 kbps.
What is a good bitrate for OBS recording?
Bitrate and Keyframe Interval Bitrate for recording and streaming should be set from 4000 Kbps to 6000 Kbps depending on your bandwidth, frame rate, and video resolution. Plus, note that Keyframe Interval should be set at 2, meaning that the video frame will be rendered every 2 seconds.
How do I get better quality on OBS?
Here are some ways you can reduce resource utilization and, hopefully, make both OBS and your programs run faster while encoding:
- Downscale your output resolution.
- Lower your frame rate.
- Change your x264 preset.
- Try Quicksync, AMF, or NVENC.
- Check your sources.
- Upgrade your hardware.
Does higher bitrate mean better quality OBS?
Excessive High Bitrate Here the broadcaster is streaming at 14,000 kbps. Simply using a higher bitrate does not necessarily mean better quality; in this case such high bitrate is causing instability.
What bitrate should I use for 720p 60fps?
between 3,500 and 5,000 kbps
For 720p video at 60 frames per second, the bitrate should be between 3,500 and 5,000 kbps. Required upload speeds are between 4.4 Mbps and 6.2 Mbps. For 1080p video at 30 frames per second, the bitrate should be 3,500 to 5,000 kbps – same as for 720p video at 60 fps.
What bitrate is needed for 1080p?
Recommended video bitrates for SDR uploads
