Twitch stream picture is "dotted"

Solved: 6 Years, 6 Months, 3 Weeks ago Twitch stream picture is "dotted"
I streamed Amnesia the other night and realized there were weird dots showing up on the stream. I don't know how else to explain it. They would appear and disappear constantly and in different areas of the picture sometimes. I alt+tab'd out to check out obs to see what was going on. I couldn't figure it out. However, when I looked at my stream again, the dots had disappeared! Excited and relieved, I went straight back into the game. Unfortunately, the dots appeared again. I got frustrated and stopped the stream. I looked up the strange problem, but couldn't find any info. I gave up and assumed it was just Amnesia specifically, and that I wouldn't get the problem with streaming any other game.

Then a couple days ago, I started to stream SOMA and found I had the same exact problem!

Today I tested out a few other games (Dishonored, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, and Star Wars Battlefront beta), and ALL of them worked perfectly! It can't just be a coincidence that I'm only having this issue with Frictional's games, old and new.

If someone could please help[/font] it would be greatly appreciated. I really just wanna get back to streaming. Thank you.

Here's the SOMA stream with the "dotted" problem:
It begins at 17:33. As you can see at 31:26, when i alt+tab out to check out obs, the dots disappear, but reappear when I open the game again. This repeats a few minutes after.

Here's the test stream from today:

Try updating your graphics drivers and see if that helps. You could also try running the game in borderless windowed mode if you arent already
