a few obs and vlc media player questions

On OBS i now have the nvidia nvenc AV1, NVENC h264, NVENC HVEC, STV AV1 and AOM AV1 which will give me the best results for recording videos? next if i record in AV1 VLC media player can play it but it wont make a thumbnail so i cant tell which clip is which, in the photo you can see the h264 videos have a thumbnail and i can tell which clip is which, with NVENC AV1 i don't get a thumbnail and its hard to know what clip is what so that kind of messes things up.. any way to fix that if its not making a thumbnail or is there a better video player to use that will read a thumbnail. ??

1. Use NVENC AV1 with the following settings

2. That's a VLC issue. I use MPC and it makes thumbnails perfectly fine You can try seeing if a new VLC update is out and fixed it, but otherwise I don't have any suggestions

MPC FTW Vlc is better than most built in media players, but it's still pretty meh

Thank you, I appreciate that I'll try out that media player. Never heard of that one but I'll look it up thank you Thank you, I will check that out I don't think my video player works with fragmented MP4 and why do you have fastest lowest quality?? Do we really want the fastest lowest quality setting ??

Presets define how much effort the hardware uses to efficiently allocate the bits it has available. More effort means better compression efficiency AKA smaller file sizes. This is useful for streaming since you have bitrate constraints For recording, you don't need to worry about bit allocation efficiency, especially with AV1. If you want higher quality, you just lower the CQP value until it looks good enough (with AV1 you really won't notice below like CQP 20) Using P1 or even P2 will save you a lot of GPU power that can be used elsewhere like gaming or rendering the OBS canvas
