Est Video Output Latency?

Mon Sep 26, 2022 5:24 pm


I notice when broadcasting, my visuals are the smallest bit out of sync locally, pre-broadcast on OBS.

I assume becuase the Magic software is outputting after processing the audio signal, and OBS gets the audio feed directly.

OBS has a feature to delay Audio by a certain amount of ms. Is there a suggested amount to put here to sync, or a way to sync exactly if magic could output audio as well?

Small fyi, it's not hardware limitation lagging, just something I"ve noticed.

Yes, if OBS is getting the audio directly, then there may be a small delay.

If Magic is running at 60fps, then I'd suggest delaying by increments of 16ms (=1/60) until things sync up better.

My guess is that either 16ms or 33ms (2/60) would be sufficient.
