    So, OBS can't record Minecraft properly. It records the first few seconds, then the video freezes, though the sound works fine. I've tried turning up/down the encoding. I can record everything else perfectly fine. Can someone help me? I need to be able to catch hackers (not that I've met any so far). Please note that Minecraft does not lag when I record/try to record.

    Could you make screenshots or a video? (settings, the first few seconds of the recording session etc.)
    that would be handy!

    Could you also write you PC specifications?
    taskmanager ---> Performance (prestaties in dutch) ---->right click on processor -> copy + paste
    ^^
    ------> Right click on memory ---> copy + paste

    Did you tried to put your "Output mode" on Advanced? I also got that problem when I used the simple Output mode, but now everything's fine with the Advanced output.

    I've got the same problem! I've almost no lagg, but the video is just horrible to watch, the game freezes every 5 seconds or something! everytime I switch from minecaft to OBS there's something on the left side of OBS in a red colour.

    Hey doods! If you have laggy problems then you could try eyeframe to convert the video, and watch it through a video editting software. I used to have a slight lag when I directly put it into a video editing software without converting the file.

    OBS should work without lag for (almost) every PC

    you can upload 60 FPS MAX on YouTube.

    upload_2016-5-27_7-34-10.png

    this is the status bar
    Gedropte Frames / dropped frames must on 0 the whole time.
    FPS : 60 FPS is the MAX for YouTube videos you can change it to a higher value but YT will change it to 60 FPS
    Green box (kb/s) : this is the status:
    green: good healthy
    yellow: lag/cannot reach to the Bit rate
    red: cannot reach the FPS and Bit rate

    turning the FPS up won't work
    try:
    60 FPS
    MAX bitrate 12000 kb/s
    1280x720 or 1920 1080

    or

    30 FPS
    MAX bitrate 8000
    1280x720 or 1920x1080

    Yes, but before I changed the FPS, it was much worse.

    Still not exactly "acceptable", though.

    Hmm, lowering the FPS seems to improve quality.

    you must check how much FPS you get in your minecraft while you're recording. If you start recording and your FPS is lower then 60 it won't record. So I see 34 FPS in The end result 4 so change your settings to 30 FPS.

    Oh, so the FPS you should use in OBS depends on the FPS the application you're trying to record has?
