How to use QuickSync?

In this Guide I will quickly explain how to activate and setup everything to use QuickSync. OBS will be used as the example streaming software, but the Guide can also be applied to other programs that can use QuickSync. If you are not sure what QuickSync is, check this article.

On Windows we would have to do this by ourselves each time we want to start a transcoding, but more on that later. Now lets take...
