Experiencing low FPS with an capture device can be caused by several factors:

  1. Hardware limitations: Your computer’s hardware may not meet the system requirements to effectively handle the capture and encoding process. Check if your computer meets the recommended specifications for the capture device you are using.
  2. USB bandwidth: If you are using a USB-connected capture device, it may be competing for bandwidth with other USB devices connected to your computer. Disconnecting unnecessary USB devices or using a different USB port can help alleviate the bandwidth congestion.
  3. Software settings: Incorrect or suboptimal settings in the capture device software or streaming software can impact performance. Ensure you have selected appropriate video quality, encoding settings, and bitrate for your desired output.
  4. Recording resolution and frame rate: Higher recording resolutions and frame rates require more processing power and can result in lower FPS if your computer cannot handle the workload. Consider reducing the recording resolution or frame rate to improve performance.
  5. Driver or firmware issues: Ensure that you have the latest drivers and firmware installed for your capture device. Outdated or incompatible drivers can cause performance issues.
  6. Overheating or thermal throttling: If your computer or the capture device is overheating, it can lead to performance degradation. Ensure that your computer and the capture device have adequate cooling and are not being subjected to excessive heat.
  7. Background processes: Other resource-intensive applications or background processes running on your computer can consume system resources and impact performance. Close unnecessary programs to free up system resources.

Consider checking these factors and troubleshooting accordingly to improve FPS when using an capture capture device. If the issue persists, reaching out to capture support or consulting technical forums can provide further assistance.
