Interview with K-Gaming about the AMD Encoder Plugin (German/Deutsch)

Hey guys, I recently answered questions from a Let’s Player that wanted to interview me about the Plugin and AMF.

The Multi-GPU Update (Version 1.4.3.0 of the AMD Encoder OBS Studio Plugin)

Today it’s time for another new version of the AMD Encoder plugin for OBS Studio.

Happy recording & streaming! Read more

Full Multi-GPU Support And More! (1.4.2.0 Update for the AMD Encoder Plugin)

Update: Two hotfixes have been released to fix additional issues. The download link has been updated. Today is the day that users with a multi-GPU system can finally use their other GPUs for streaming and recording – and today is also the day that OBS Studio no longer crashes on startup! This update adds full support for multi-GPU systems, fixes the crash on startup bug, fixes Filler Data being stuck on Enabled, makes Delta QP available even when not using Constant QP, fixes some UI things and more.

Hotfix 1.4.1.0 is out for the Encoder Plugin!

This has now been fixed with the help of Jim (maintainer of OBS Studio). Additionally some crashes have been fixed that were caused by incorrect default parameters which have been changed to the correct value now. Frame Rate & Size should also now be properly applied again. Read more
