I am using Nvidia GT1030 with OBS Studio running Ubuntu 16.04. When trying to record with OBS Studio, the screen is flickering. The same using other recording software - Kazam.


It turned out the Nvidia 384 driver has a bug. To disable OBS Studio flickering go to Nvidia settings - OpenGL settings - uncheck Allow Flipping. Close Nvidia settings.

  • When it's on I get horrible flickering in my recordings. When it's off I get horrible tearing on my monitor. Isn't there any way to solve both? I have Nvidia 435.21 driver. – Mark Jeronimus Jan 25 '20 at 11:51
  • It applies to the 384 driver only. – kukulo Jan 26 '20 at 9:46
