OBS uses a lot of your computer's processing power to enhance your video feed. For greatest stability, the Host should reduce the Studio's default quality (recording resolution) to ensure a smooth frame rate.
- If you are new to using OBS as a virtual camera, follow our setup instructions, then select it as your camera in the Riverside Studio.
- In OBS's Settings > Video, use your computer monitor's resolution as the Base (Canvas) Resolution and set the Output (Scaled) Resolution to match the resolution of the Riverside Studio.
- Ask the Host or Producer to check the Studio's settings if you are unsure of its current recording resolution.
- In OBS's Settings > Video, set the Common FPS Value to the same frame rate as the Riverside Studio's frame rate.
- Ask the Host or Producer to check the Studio's settings if you are unsure of its current frame rate.
- If you connect to a wireless camera, OBS can correct for the video signal's slight latency.
