Is this still true? In OBS, Settings → Advanced there is a "Stream Delay"
section (mentioned on https://obsproject.com/wiki/OBS-Studio-Overview).

The default setting of 20s estimates mem usage of 11MB; I set the option
to 120s which increased the memory usage estimate to 69MB. Even five
minutes 'only' uses 174MB.
