How to fix webcam/audio lag in your screen recording

If the webcam or audio in your screen recording is lagging, try the following:

  • Check that your system has at least 8GB of memory.
  • Restart your system.
  • Reduce your screen recording resolution to 1080p.
  • Close any other applications that have high CPU usage.
  • Connect your system to power or switch from Power Saver mode to High-Performance.

Here's how to switch to High-Performance mode on Windows:

  1. Click the battery icon in the System Tray.
  2. Select High-Performance mode.

You may also change the power mode from Start > Settings > System > Power & Battery or Control Panel > System and Security > Power Options.

Once done, please try recording again and you will notice a smooth video output.

In case the video output is still not smooth in Windows, please turn off Hardware Encoding.
