Idle Streaming Community: Twitchy, Tasty in Video Gaming Posted February 5, 2017 Oh yeah I removed the period from the post but it was still in the link - fixed it now. Yep I switched to Xsplit for the Ghost of a Tale stream, which fixed the issues with the webcam but introduced issues in the gameplay. I've set it to encode on the CPU now so I hope next time everything is smooth. [update] turns out the framedrops came from Xsplit running on the same GPU as the game. I switched it to use the Intel onboard one, keeping the Nvidia dedicated to running the game, and now it's buttery smooth.
