So I followed the instructions in the thread like I've done before with another video.
Strangely, my result is a weird black and white video, slightly slanting to the right, with a duplicate slanting next to it on the left to fill a gap. It's like watching the game through a security camera.
What did I do wrong?
Try this. On the encoder configuration, hit presets, load all, default. This will revert the codec to it's default settings. Then go back and change everything like it tells you in the video (Encoder, Mode, bitrate) and leave everything else alone.
