I own a community with 73k people and I was thinking of getting back to streaming. I’ve been streaming mostly PUBG and PC always had issues with lag and choppiness, no matter what encoder I used, platform nor bitrate. I tried with all encoders and different bitrates, but nothing helped. Reinstalling OBS and clearing all setting files also had no effect. (Yes, I’ve googled).
So doing some puzzles in my head, I’ve came to a conclusion that I might somehow combine getting a new laptop and using it as an video encoding device. My laptop is long overdue for a replacement (A8-4500M APU).
Would a laptop with an i7-8750H do a decent job when it comes to X264 encoding? How I would go about doing this whole plan?
