NVENC Encoding in OBS Studio won't work

Hello! I’m using OBS Studio to record my screen. However, NVENC encoding doesnt work. I get this error:
and a console output:

Is this a known issue? My GPU is Nvidia Geforce GT1030, using proprietary drivers.
Pretty sure my GPU should support NVENC.

Oh wait, i’m dumb. NVENC is not supported on my GPU at all. Sorry.

If it’s not supported then you can go to Settings > Output > Streaming and set the “Encoder” to “Software (x264)” and Apply. Same can be done for Recording also.
