  • What Data Does Windows 10 Send to Microsoft?

    Your Windows 10 installation is probably sending quite a bit of information to Microsoft. Just what sorts of things are being sent, and could they be used to identify you or your activities?

  • Windows 10 is Holding Back Content Creators & Streamers!

    UPDATE: Windows Insiders can now test a new build of Windows 10 that has tweaked Game Mode and can have drastic improvements on gaming + OBS streaming even with Game Mode turned off. This is Phase 1 of the fixes for this issue. Phase 2 has yet to be announced publicly, but is coming and should (mostly) alleviate the rest.
    I wasn't bullshitting when I said I had the right info/knew who to talk to for getting it fixed now :)

    Hey guys. This wasn't a "Please help me, I don't know what the problem is" video. This was literally "here's a problem MANY PEOPLE FACE, and here's the EXACT CAUSE AND REASONING BEHIND IT, also some possible workarounds, and the people trying to fix it with Microsoft." Advice is not helpful here. I have the answers. I'm literally giving the answers. Treat this video as a massive FAQ about the issue.

    Alright. people don't listen to/watch videos before commenting. I should be used to this. LET'S ADDRESS SOME STUFF:
    - "Doesn't happen on my machine" - then either you're not pegging 90-100% GPU usage to encounter the bug, or it happens not to affect you. It can be inconsistent. The issue is still real, real enough Nvidia themselves are trying to get MS to fix it.
    - "You can fix it with X Y Z" - no, you can't. Changing it to "High Performance GPU" in the graphics settings just means you're telling it to run on your dedicated GPU (instead of the iGPU or something) which it already has to do in order to see Display Capture/Game Capture frames in the first place. Not a fix.
    Disabling Fullscreen Optimizations/Game Mode doesn't fix. Neither does setting process priority (which only affects CPU affinity) to high. I addressed these in the video.
    - "Run OBS on a second GPU" - then OBS can't see frames for Display Capture/Game Capture. This is why people on laptops with dual GPUs frequently get black screen issues. OBS has to render/composite on the GPU that the frames are coming from. Theoretically a capture card inputting to second GPU could work - but on 16 PCIe lane CPUs (i.e. my 8700k) this is literally not an option. I have 2 x16 slots. 1 has GPU, 1 has capture card. I can't add a second GPU and still have a 1440p+ capable capture card.
    - "Stop playing at 4K, idiot" - this isn't directly tied to resolution, it's GPU load. I first noticed it when I WAS gaming at 4K (past tense) in 2017, and still affects me at 1440p, and even running Apex at 1080p to try to fix it.
    - This isn't "the latest update" - this at minimum started in Spring 2017, and likely sooner as it affects 8.1 as well. Also addressed in the video.
    - No, Linux or Windows 7 is not a fix. Then my stream deck, various capture cards, other accessories/things don't work. That's not a solution. No, operating system choice doesn't determine intelligence. If you think that, you yourself are not very smart.

    Here are two major issues with Windows 10 that is holding back content creators - one with regards to live streaming, and one with regards to actual video production. I know people are in talks with Microsoft to hopefully address these, but this needs fixed sooner rather than later.

    For the latter issue my only option seems to be to drop $700 on a Radeon VII or $2500 on a Titan RTX. Not cool.
