So first let me start by saying that about a month ago I've had major issues streaming with procaster. I never had any issues at all streaming in medium quality with procaster even with background programs like skype on, about a month ago however after a windows update (i think) my procaster started to act up.
For example under medium quality even when streaming nothing but my desktop, it jumps up and down between 60~80 sometimes 90% CPU here is a screen shot.
And when I try it on normal quality while the CPU is fine during desktop, forget a game I can barely stream a 720p res movie without it staying at 95%+ at all times, here is another screenshot:
I have taken many measures to try and fix this issue by optimizing my windows, by turning off windows services, all windows GFX and animations so its flat grey now, by de-fragmenting, by cleaning up every log/useless file/shortcut laying around, and turned off any background services that I didn't use or didn't need at the time, where my PC coasted at a cool 0~2% CPU no matter what I did, however as soon as I start procaster jumps right to 80 and up.
Here is my dxdiag:
And my PC Specs:
i7 Quad Core 860 2.8ghz
4GB DDR3 Ram
2x GTX 460's on SLI
Now, what the hell is going on? Please respond thank you.
