Streamlabs OBS latency issue

By GreenFortGriot ·
I've been doing test streams on youtube using Streamlabs OBS. The issue im having is that whenever i add a source to a scene such as a picture/video/audio or any source, it runs smooth on my end but on the viewer end, there's a very long delay (15-30 secs) before they see the new source. Hoping someone can help me with this. I've had this issue on my IMAC which is pretty powerful. So i'm certain it's not a CPU issue. i've tried many different settings in streamlabs & nothing has worked.

Stream Latency

by bob1601081656 In reply to Streamlabs OBS latency is ...

In the setup for your stream, look for Stream latency and set it to low or Ultra low-latency. Depending on what you are doing ( gaming or just presenting ) is how you should set your latency.. Low-latency will give you approx. 10 to 15 seconds delay, where ultra low will give you almost zero to 5 seconds delay.. Problem with this is that if the the connection drops for a second the viewers stream will buffer .. I do a live presentation every month and I have mine set on low.. The delay is acceptable..
Hope that helps
