If you've been following my social media for the past few years, or have read my Recording or Streaming on NVIDIA Turing/Ampere guides, I'm always chasing the next higher level of "perfection". And this time I was chasing the lowest possible latency on Twitch - and it appears that I have finally found it, after days of trying.
Every since publishing the guide on how to achieve the best possible NVIDIA NVENC quality with FFmpeg 4.3.x and below, people repeatedly ask me what the best possible recording settings are. So today, as a Christmas present, let me answer this question to the best of my knowledge and help all of you achieve a quality you've never seen before. Read the full guide here.
Streaming with more than one PC has been the leader in H.264 encoding for years, but NVIDIAs Turing and Ampere generation has put a significant dent into that lead. The new generation of GPUs with the brand new encoder brought comparable quality x264 medium - if you can find a GPU that is. Let's take a look at what's needed to set up your stream for massively improved quality.
Performance is important, and even more so in live streaming. Every streamer and content creator absolutely hates it to see the FPS number dip below the configured number - especially if it is a far drop below. But what can you actually do against that as a streamer or content creator?
A short while ago I teased a new filter live on stream, and now that the Nvidia counterpart for it is publicly released I can finally go into more detail on what it does, why it is useful, and how you too can now use it on your Nvidia GeForce RTX hardware.
