Hi XSplit community,
Since one version update my desktop has been acting oddly. Games no matter what game played from my PC caused the entire system to start a very bad stutter. So much so that it effected the entire system. A restart fixed things as long as no on PC gaming while streaming.
I could play games fine without XSpliy streaming.
Just opening XSplit doesn’t cause any issue. It is the start of a stream to any site that causes the issue.
I figured maybe it is my old set up. After reading a lot of people’s posts here I find I am in the same boat. And, they have newer systems with the same iasues.
This has been about a year now dealing with not being able to play games and stream.
Oddly, it would allow me to pass my XBOX ONE X gameplay through just fine.
Lately as of the last update things have gotten worse.
I started with removing all unused programs.
Next unistalled Windows 10 Pro and reinstalled with a fresh install.
I also check the updates daily for Windows and check most times I launch XSplit.
I try to keep things updated to avoid issues like this.
About 2 months back I started getting BSOD screens. Not daily, but daily I was getting the same stutter I used to get playing games. Again, after I start streaming.
No streaming means my PC ran fine
To insure it wasn’t hardware, I ran every test I could.
Now, do not let this be the spot you stop reading.
The memory test came back with Hardware Issues.
I ran hard drive tests they equal fine.
That leaves RAM.
I did discover and diagnose it was RAM and tested today each of my 4 sticks of RAM.
And 1 is going bad. So I removed it today.
I then reinstalled the 3 good sticks and powered back up.
I ran my DJ software, my security software was fine, and any other startup program was fine.
I fire up XSPLIT all is good.
I start streaming first getting XSplit is attempting to corrupt the system.
Things seem OK after that for about 5 minutes.
Then stutter with system wide latency. Using a latency monitor it shows things fine at first then the latency goes off the the charts.
Suddenly I get a Windows security message: Windows has blocked XSPLIT from all GPU access.
In all the years of using Windows this is the first time a message like this has ever appeared.
Another issue now I get from the Radeon Desktop Software is: driver timeout, and at that time Xsplit becomes 100% accessible through mouse commands.
I have to use either Task Manager or Process Explorer to end the process.
I did a full uninstall of XSplit and left the Tast Manager open, a message that VH Multi EX2 will not close, would you like to see if Windows can close it and continue the uninstall process?
After looking on Google it seems that thai exe is apart of XSPLIT. So I stop it and XSplit continued to uninstall.
We are now on good RAM only and the bad stick out of the PC.
Now I did read to remove or delete or reset the sources you use ad they can sometimes cause an issue.
My issue now is Windows security has locked XSplit totally out from GPU access. And, the driver that is attempting to corrupt the system issue.
When I got a BSOD mini dump XSPLIT was the root of the cause of problem from the best I can tell. And, it was the only thing listed.
From the many people posting about this issue it seems to be widespread and since the from version 3 to 4 and any others after.
M5A99FX Pro 2.0 mono.
CPU: FX8370 4 cores 8 core logical.
12 GB RAM - Tested today was 16GB the bad stick removed.
Windows 10 Pro up to date checked daily.
Radeon AMD desktop software up to date checked today.
Keyboard and mouse software RAZOR all up to date - checked today.
Security software - checked today up to date.
Virtual DJ 2021 checked today up to date.
VU meter from source forge is open source and updated to the current version.
Not sure what else to include other than as of now XSPLIT BROADCASTER is100% useless to me.
I simple terms that means I start using another streaming software. That means I may find a better solution and XSplit would have lost me as a end user.
