Is recording on screen on software such as Discord?

  • Whenever I stream on Discord (a platform where video and voice chat is used), it displays a black screen. Is it true that Opera does not support screen recording? Like what other articles say?

  • Hello. From my experience with Discord in Opera browser, the only thing I can tell you is this:
    I've used both Discords (The browser's one and the recently side-bar Discord) and when I was in a voice call, the audio didn't sound properly and, when I tried to stream or view my friends' streams or video cameras, simply it wasn't showing up. So, I recommend you to utilize the Discord browser mode only for chatting and, if you want to make a call or stream a game, use the app on your computer.
    That's all. I don't know about any article that talk about the problems with Discord in Opera browser, sorry.

  • Thank you for your reply, it's just unfair that Opera GX doesn't show up on screens share anymore for me. I let my friend help me test out the screen share feature and it worked for him on the same browser.

  • Hmm that's strange. Maybe it's due to Opera version. Have you asked your friend for the version that he's using?

  • Well I'm not entirely sure, I can't ask him now since he is asleep, but since Opera GX auto updates itself he might be on the latest version. It's only an assumption I'll keep you updated as soon as he is online.

  • Alright, I understand. Anyways, the aim of asking the version is for comparing our versions. Maybe, some updates work better with Discord than anothers.

  • La soluci贸n es sencilla, tienes que ir a los Ajustes de Opera y desactivar la "aceleraci贸n por hardware".
    Al menos eso me funcion贸 a mi con ese problema de la pantalla negra al capturar una ventana de Opera con Discord, OBS Studio o cualquier otro programa que permita compartir pantalla o ventanas abiertas.

  • I don't understand what you said but I know what you mean. I have done the voice & video things needed and it still won't work, drivers and etc.

  • @PolF7 English here please.

  • @dafint Hello, it has been five days. How about your friend? Have your issue been resolved?

  • @hagfird My friend has the latest version of the browser, still works but we found the solution. We did some experimenting for 5 days and found the problem, I was using hardware acceleration setting. I turned it off and it seems to work now. Thank you for your support!

  • @dafint Oooh, that's good. I'll keep that in mind if I'm getting more issues with Discord. You're welcome!

  • @hagfird Just to mention a bit the hardware acceleration is on Opera not on Discord. Sorry I forgot and just to clear things out.

  • @dafint No problem, thanks for clarifying it. 馃憤
