Obs start recording hotkey not working
When you hit the shortcut key to start recording, sometimes Obs will say Invalid Path or Connection URL. The most common reason for this is that your obs folder is located in a protected directory like Program Files. To fix this, try moving your obs folder out of the protected directory and into a location where you have write permissions (like your desktop). If that doesn’t work, you can also try changing the security settings on your obs folder so that everyone has read/write access.
To do this, right-click on your obs folder and select Properties. Then, go to the Security tab and click on the Edit button. From here, you can add or remove users and groups who have access to the folder. Be sure to give yourself (and any other user who needs to use the hotkey) full read/write access.
Invalid Path or Connection URL OBS hotkey
When you hit the shortcut key to start recording, sometimes Obs will say Invalid Path or Connection URL. The most common reason for this is that your scenes are not set up correctly.
To fix this, go to File > Settings, then click on the “Stream” tab. Make sure that your “Stream Type” is set to “Custom Streaming Server.”
Under “Play Path/Stream Key,” enter the URL of your live stream, plus the key. The URL will look something like this: rtmp://example.com/live. The key is the string of characters that uniquely identifies your stream.
If you’re still having trouble, try restarting Obs. If that doesn’t work, try reinstalling Obs.
