How to Stop Dropped Frames in OBS
- Reduce the resolution of your streams. In general, the higher the stream resolution, the higher the CPU usage.
- Reduce the bitrate of your streams.
- If live streaming over WiFi try using an ethernet cable.
- Check your firewall settings.
- Broadcast to a server that is closest to you.
How do I fix dropped frames in Streamlabs?
To fix lagged frames:
- Try lowering the quality of the game so Streamlabs OBS has some breathing room to compose the frames of the encoder. You can also limit the FPS or use V-sync.
- Lock your settings in your game to 120FPS and 120Hz, as this nicely divides for 60FPS and 30FPS streaming.

Why are my frames dropping OBS?
“Dropped frames” means that your connection to the server isn’t stable, or you can’t keep up with your set bitrate. Again, dropped frames are nearly impossible to be caused by OBS itself. You may also have connection problems such as random disconnections due to firewall / anti-virus / security software, routers, etc.
Does streaming lower FPS?
Selecting a lower FPS will use less CPU usage not having to capture 60 frames every second but instead half of that. Of course if you capture half the frames then you will most likely notice that the stream is not as fluid, but at least it’s less work for your CPU and still considered reasonable for most viewers.
