OBS Multitrack Recording Audio Remuxer

FFmpeg Audio Remuxer demo video: https://youtu.be/Q10JB-iD85o

Download on Github: https://github.com/downthecrop/audio-remuxer/releases/

Features:
– Automatically selects the most recent stream recording to remux
– Drag any recordings onto the .exe to remux them into the output directory
– Fast. a 2 hour stream can be muxed in 10 seconds.
– Batch directory support
– Output file prefixing
– Free and Open Source

With Twitch DMCA muting vods lots of people are going to be multitrack recoding locally. This tool can remux multritrack recodings into a new mp4 with a single audiotrack selected. Useful specifically if you record a track with only game audio and microphone selected for archival on Twitch or YouTube.

If you utilize multitrack recording with OBS you might already be using a script to use FFMPEG to remux the video. This program makes remuxing after a stream really easy.

League of Legends DirectX 9 vs DirectX 11 Performance Benchmark

League of Legends DirectX9 vs DirectX11 FPS Performance Test Benchmark. Watch the side by side here

With the release of League of Legends Patch 10.16 there is now official (beta) support for the Direct X11 Rendering backend for League of Legends (LoL). I have conducted a side by side comparison between the old rendering backend D3D9 (DirectX 9) and the new D3D11 (DirectX 11). If you want to enable DX11 in your own game you can follow the instructions provided by Riot here.

League of Legends

  • Medium, Shadows Disabled
  • 240 FPS Framerate Limit (Recommend)

  • Performance Advantage FPS: 6.5+ DX11
  • Performance Gain Percent: 3.91%

Recording Settings

Note: The impact of OBS with these settings is as low as ~5FPS. When running the tests I had no additional software running other than OBS and League of Legends. In a real use case even if you don’t record/stream the performance impact should be similar to having Chrome/Firefox open with a YouTube video or Discord ect.

Disable Twitch Player Extensions

Do you dislike or even hate the extensions that overlay the video player on Twitch? I sure do. According to the official help page for extensions they “provide interactive experiences directly through the Twitch video player” in my opinion they provide needless distraction. Lets learn how to disable them.

Twitch FAQ on Extensions
Q: I am not a fan of Extensions, can I disable them as a viewer?
A: …Extensions in the video player can be minimized but not disabled by a viewer.

http:// https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/how-to-use-extensions?language=en_US#FAQ

Now this isn’t the answer that I was looking for. Let’s find a different solution.

Disabling Twitch Player Extensions Through uBlock or other Content Blockers

If you find Twitch player extensions frustrating to look at you probably already have uBlock Origin installed on your browser. If not, you should switch to it from your current ad-blocker. It’s free, open-source, and light weight with additional blocking functionality that makes it perfect for this. Get uBlock on GitHub

The 4 simple steps to completely disable Twitch Player Extensions

Simply click on the uBlock extension icon, select “Open the dashboard”, go to “My filters”, and paste in the following rule:

! Twitch.tv Player Extensions

Apply changes and refresh any currently open twitch page with those nasty extensions and they should be gone for good!
