    Easy fix. Raise the bitrate and video dimensions. Its set to 2,500 for streaming/recording but that is low for video quality and youtube's compression doesn't help it. Go here for more info on recommended bitrates per type and framerate. Hope this helps! :D
    *Edit: Just reread the link I posted andYTt's recommended settings for 480p is 2.5 mbps which is 2,500 on obs. I'll look into it more :confused1: My settings are set to 10000 for the bitrate, 1080p@60fps.
    Also, are you using OBS or OBS Studio? And what laptop are you using to record?

    3500 bitrate is enough? lol.

    I don't use OBS that much except for livestreaming, and I have my bitrate on 3500. Now I have no idea if that depends whether you're recording or livestreaming. Also another note is make sure to have the Base Resolution set to 'Custom: 1920 1080' for 1080p footage, and set FPS to 60 if you want that too.

    If this didn't help, then I don't know what fixes it, but I have it like that for livestreaming

    I think what you need to do is change the Max Bitrate (kb/s)
    These are my settings.

    I asked because I'm using OBS Studio and some of the settings are different between the two. I was wondering what laptop it was to determine if you'd be able to run higher settings, As I've stated before, its the bitrate that makes it look grainy. you dont need it over the recommended settings for YouTube, because they will just lower it for more optimized streaming. Also make sure the output container is .mp4. That needs to be changed from the stock settings I believe.
    These are my settings. I use the h.264_nvec encoder because I have an Nvidia 1060 GPU in my laptop. It reduces the strain on the cpu for video encoding. I'd suggest you look for a setting like that. Should say Nvidia NVENC in OBS.
    3,500kbps is good for streaming, yes, but not for videos :p I'll provide proof in a few days if this thread doesn't get locked.
