I need help Camera constantly freezing on OBS

I have a simple set up with our PTZ cam for our church. It feeds from camera thru AJA to to the computer. We tried everything; directed power to the USB port, checked all the settings. internet runs great. The problem is the video freezes in the middle of the service. I have our guy ready to deactivate then activate so it can function again. I looking to purchase a second camera but I wont until I figure out this problem. Thank you. Is it Software or Hardware?

Hi Allan,


I am sorry to hear you are experiencing these issue with your streaming setup.


In an attempt to get to the bottom of this I am hoping to gain a bit more insight into your current setup...


  • What model PTZOptics camera are you using?
  • What model AJA device are you using?
  • How long is the cable connecting the PTZOptics cameras output to the AJA devices input?
  • Are you using an USB extensions or hubs with the AJA?
  • Is the AJA sharing a USB host with any other USB devices?
  • Have the USB Power Save settings been disabled for the utilized USB ports?
  • Does the camera exhibit this freeze if removed from the rest of your setup? (i.e. connected directly to a TV with an HDMI input for viewing?


I hope with most, if not all, of the answers to the questions above we can get to the root of your freezing issue.


We look forward to hearing from you again soon.
