Wirecast CRASHES Every Time I Queue A Playlist With a Video In It
Hello, I have an introduction playlist of two videos and a blank shot. I also have another playlist containing a video and a blank shot. Anytime I just click on one of these playlists, wirecast freezes and starts not responding. I don't even put them live, I just click them to PREVIEW them and WIRECAST FREEZES INSTANTLY. This is extremely disrupting for my stream and has completely screwed up my Facebook live stream.
Bradley Harker Try reseting preferences. Wirecast > Help > Send Support Information but click on lower left Reset Preferences. Then using a New Document and test with just a webcam as source. I want to make sure stream to either Facebook or YouTube (not both) just to make sure streaming itself isn't an issue. Please include encoder preset used.Reply
CraigS Never mind. It crashed towards the very end of our stream. Reset my preferences after we stopped streaming. It continued streaming while Wirecast was not responding so I just waited for the end of our service and then force quit it to stop the stream.

I see a couple of potential challenges with your settings.
You're using both 30p and 60p encoders. That might be a problem.
That you're using NVENC on both may further exacerbate the problem.
You don't mention your Wirecast Preferences Video Display Rate but it can be either 30 or 60 but not both.
First you should create a New Document ( to ensure it doesn't carry over the issue) and use only 30p encoder, making sure Wirecast Video Display Rate is set to 30p and test.Reply
