M50, OBS, EOS software

hello all,

 

I have had my setup working for game streaming and was keeping the display closed on the M50 to conserve battery life.  Has been working great for two weeks.  today i was getting set up and the camera was freezing about every 5-10 seconds.  i had uninstalled and reinstalled all software to no avail.  then i started messing with the camera.  no settings were changed, but i noticed if i kept the screen open, no more freezing, i have an ac adapter on the way but backordered for 2-4 weeks.  i could get about 2 hrs streaming time with the display closed. and open its about 30 min.  any suggestions?  TIA.

The instructions posted in the Software forum say that the display display should be opened, and rotated to face you.  For long sessions, an AC power adapter is suggested.
