When running Vmix Ver 9 .. Not recording and going external to Adobe Flash Media Encoder ... the Media encoder reports zero dropped frames and watching the stream (on a different computer and connection) confirms that the stream is indeed top quality.
When using Vmix ver 10 same settings, in both vmix as far as the preset goes and same settings in Adobe media encoder frames start dropping at an alarming rate and eventually the encoder crashes. (vmix still runs)
Uninstalling ver 10 and reverting to version 9 corrects the problem ... which leads me to believe there is something different in the video rendering or handoff to the media encoder between these two versions???
At the moment I am doing a webcast for a customer and will soon travel to L.A. for another however when I have a free moment I will happily make a video of whats going on if you would find that helpful... We could even schedule a time where you could watch a stream from vmix ver 9 VS vmix ver 10 if you like...
I greatly appreciate your time and interest in the matter...
What version of windows are you running, what CPU and what recording options have you selected?
Also, do the dropped frames show up in the recording or somewhere else?
