On my desktop PC both "F1EJP-FreeStreamCoder-v02.52.exe" and "IPTV-F1EJP-OBS-v01.16.bat" are running well.
On my laptop (I5 9300 and Nvidia GTX 1660 TI) only "IPTV-F1EJP-OBS-v01.16.bat" is running fine during hours. With FSC I can't get the green light.
Both programs are used in Nvidia mode.
Why ? how is made the test for the green light ?
Difficult to know each problem but it may be a conflict between the 2 ffmpeg versions installed and if Windows system variables have been declared.
With the old script the path to ffmpeg is: C:\ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg.exe
With FreeStreamCoder: C:\F1EJP\ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg.exe
Some OM have already had this problem and may be able to confirm.

Here is the new version 2.73 (I did not release the 2.72)
> Added GPU support for AMD (Radeon) graphics cards >> I need your test feedback to know if OK
> Improvement in low bit rates by reducing the bit rates occupied by the DVB tables (periodicity)
> We can go down to a very low bit rate of around 59kb / s which allows transmissions in DVB-S2 SR25 or SR20 without audio.
> We can now go up to 8M bandwidth in DVB-T (31Mb / s)
> The choice of 16/9 resolutions has also been increased
> Addition for test of mpeg2 (H262) in soft or hard coding for the INTEL GPU
> Added DVB PID and SID settings
CAUTION for data rates greater than 1Mb / s, a powerful processor is required
If your processor reaches 100% then ffmpeg may crash.
You can do this easily with OBS + FreestreamCoder and Antivirus (you can temporarily disable it)
Thank you again for participating in the test returns

Sorry File is too large for this forum.. you can download it on vivadatv.org:
In my laptop:
- I cleared all my old ffmpeg drawers in C:/
- I cleared the C:/F1EJP drawer
- I install the new 2.73 version and re input all my parameters
And it runs fine
Thanks a lot
In the past, I have had a major issue with OBS/FFMPEG/Portsdown 4 where static pictures had some breakup. The same pictures sent directly from the Portsdown were perfect. I have spent weeks trying to get the FFMPEG scripts correct, but have never managed to solve the problem. This evening I have installed V2.73, set up the config, and have perfect pictures on my local repeater. I still need to play around to decide whether it is better to use software or Intel hardware encoding, but that is fine tuning.
