Hello guys.

I have some problem with NVENC in obs-studio. NVENC encoding doesn't appear in output configuration, only software. My videocard is 780GTX, it have NVENC chip on board.

USE flag 'nvenc' enabled for ffmpeg

Installed packages:

media-video/ffmpeg-3.3.3
dev-util/nvidia-cuda-toolkit-8.0.61
media-video/nvidia-video-codec-8.0.14
media-video/nvidia_video_sdk-6.0.1 USE="tools"


driver is nvidia-drivers-384.69, tried previous version of drivers - same result.

OBS-studio-20.0.1

Any ideas how to get this thing to work?

I wonder if you need the openh264 or x264 use flag.

I have it... And I have the Software x264 in obs-studio settings.

Does the version you're using have nvenc support at all? Run strings /usr/bin/obs | grep NVENC to check, but that probably isn't the problem. Also make sure ffmpeg itself can use nvenc: ffmpeg -hide_banner -codecs:v | grep h264 should mention it.

Code:
c@localhost ~ $ ffmpeg -hide_banner -codecs:v | grep h264
 DEV.LS h264                 H.264 / AVC / MPEG-4 AVC / MPEG-4 part 10 (decoders: h264 h264_vdpau libopenh264 h264_cuvid ) (encoders: libx264 libx264rgb libopenh264 h264_nvenc h264_vaapi nvenc nvenc_h264 )


Code:
c@localhost ~ $ strings /usr/bin/obs | grep NVENC
NVENCPreset
Basic.Settings.Output.Simple.Encoder.Hardware.NVENC


But OBS stil haven't option Hardware. Maybe it's bug in OBS GUI?

The GUI's supposed to show that option if it's detected, so I agree it's a bug. Good luck reporting it, I've never been able to get their bug tracker to even load...

Hm.

I have it working here, with a GTX 960 and the following:

Code:
media-video/ffmpeg-3.3.4
media-video/nvidia_video_sdk-6.0.1
media-video/obs-studio-20.0.1
x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-384.69

This isn't much of an idea, but when you run OBS from a terminal, can you see the following?

Code:
info: NVENC supported

The 'strings' test probably confirmed this already, at least partially.

That's strange, but when I run OBS in Terminal I didn't see "NVENC supported"...

Yeah, I imagine if it would be shown there, then it would likely be in the settings as expected, too.

It looks like the message comes from this function (or when it's called, rather):

Code:
static bool nvenc_supported(void)
{
        AVCodec *nvenc = avcodec_find_encoder_by_name("nvenc_h264");
        void *lib = NULL;

        if (!nvenc)
                return false;

It seems like it's looking for the string 'nvenc_h264', which according to your post should be found...

Quite puzzling indeed. I'm not sure if this can be any different, considering the earlier tests, but what does

Code:
ffmpeg -encoders | grep nvenc

show to you?

I get:

Code:
 V..... h264_nvenc           NVIDIA NVENC H.264 encoder (codec h264)
 V..... nvenc                NVIDIA NVENC H.264 encoder (codec h264)
 V..... nvenc_h264           NVIDIA NVENC H.264 encoder (codec h264)
 V..... nvenc_hevc           NVIDIA NVENC hevc encoder (codec hevc)
 V..... hevc_nvenc           NVIDIA NVENC hevc encoder (codec hevc)

 V..... nvenc_hevc           NVIDIA NVENC hevc encoder (codec hevc)

I recieved this:

 V..... nvenc                NVIDIA NVENC H.264 encoder (codec h264)

 V..... nvenc_hevc           NVIDIA NVENC hevc encoder (codec hevc)
 V..... hevc_nvenc           NVIDIA NVENC hevc encoder (codec hevc)


According this information my system have required codec... But OBS stil haven't option for hardware encoding. As I said when I run OBS in terminal I did't see message "NVENC supported"

Yeah, it's odd, though pretty much what I was expecting.

While I don't have any great ideas still, could you please post the output from 'emerge --info', as well as the current, full USE-flag configuration for 'ffmpeg'.

You missed the 'emerge --info' part, though it's probably not going to be of much help here. :]

I still couldn't reproduce the issue, not even comparing our USE-flags.

Here's something else to confirm, just to make sure, if you haven't yet: try encoding something using just 'ffmpeg' and 'nvenc'.

Something like this:

Code:
ffmpeg -i [some input file] -c:v h264_nvenc [some output file]

Yes, encoding works... But in OBS still haven't option for NVENC.

Well then... Time to dig deeper. :]

Have you at any point installed FFmpeg (or 'media-video/libav') manually, outside of Portage?

Do have 'media-video/ffmpeg' installed currently (as your first post mentions), and no 'media-video/libav'?

If you can, please post the output from the following commands:
  • emerge --info
  • find /usr/local -name \*ffmpeg\*
  • ldd /usr/bin/obs
  • type ffmpeg
Additionally, please post the build logs for 'media-video/ffmpeg' and 'media-video/obs-studio' (for these, 'wgetpaste' would be a good idea).

(Thanks to Hu for the additional ideas.)

No, I didn't try to install libav from outside the portage.

Yes. I have only ffmpeg without libav.

Thank you!

That all does look OK so far (except for finding the cause of the issue, heh). I don't have systemd installed, but I can't quite imagine it making a difference in this case...

Another big difference is the bunch of overlays you have installed, but it does not look like they even provide anything that could be causing this.

I'd still like to see the build logs for 'media-video/ffmpeg' and 'media-video/obs-studio' (use 'wgetpaste' for example), and perhaps the terminal output from running 'obs', or the log file that it creates under '/home/$USER/.config/obs-studio/logs/'.

I've been asking about this in the obsproject IRC channel of Freenode as well, and they find this issue pretty weird, too. Usually it's the other way around, that OBS thinks the machine /has/ NVENC support while it doesn't (which isn't necessarily surprising, if I'm reading the detection stuff correctly).

Okay, there is build logs:

OBS:

FFMPEG:
https://paste.pound-python.org/show/jliJBG13ULQTGiEjv3CX/

And there is terminal output:
https://paste.pound-python.org/show/NDcmYoOSqEjsN2pykkDm/

I'm also trying to build ffmpeg-3.3.4 - same result.

Apologies for the delay. Seems I caught a bit of a flu, and that managed to keep me away from the computer.

Unfortunately, this issue still remains a mystery to me. Indeed, I had tried downgrading to FFmpeg 3.3.3, among various other tests here, but never managed to re-produce the issue.

Thank you for all the information you have provided thus far. Right now, aside from digging in with 'gdb' or something similar, I'm out of ideas.

If you're keen though, I would be interested in what a couple of little patches would do there (if you're unfamiliar with adding patches to Portage builds, see for example: wiki.gentoo.org - /etc/portage/patches).

This one changes the detection logic a bit, and looks for just 'nvenc' (although this shouldn't really make a difference).

The second one is a rather horrible hack that will enable NVENC support regardless of what FFmpeg reports. It's certainly no fix, but at least in theory, my theory, it should make things work for you until it's /really/ fixed (or you will get a window saying “Starting the output failed.

The patches are to be used separately, that is, only apply one of them at a time.

A copy & paste from here may result in a patching error due to tabs being replaced by white-spaces, so I would 'aria2c' or 'wget' the raw URLs (or copy from there in some other way).

Flu it's inconvenient thing. I hope you're getting better now ;)

Big thanks for your answer and for your solutions. I tried both and can tell you that:

First one didn't change anything in my case.

But second, the horrible one, fix my issue and OBS start encoding witn NVENC. According this I can say that you theory works.

Thank You! But I'm still having big interest about circumstances of this issue...

Glad it at least does the job for you now!

It really seems weird since, from what I can tell, it's asking FFmpeg for the support, and FFmpeg itself says it's there, but when asked by OBS (seemingly using an FFmpeg function for it), it's suddenly not there...

I'll definitely let you know if/when I bump into something more about this.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but what about intel quick sync? I can't seem to get that to work in OBS either.

(then again, I've been noticing that OBS 20.0.1 likes to crash at random, haven't tried 9999 or 18/19)

From a quick peek, it looks like “Quick Sync” support is for Windows only at this time.

(Might want to start a thread somewhere about the crashing. :])

I've been using 9999 and it crashes on average every 5 minutes. Thought I was the only one with that problem.

You shouldn't need Quick Sync on Linux, VAAPI encoders should work. Not sure if the streaming settings allow those, but the regular recording settings do (and you can set it to send to an URL anyway).
