Unfocused Browser - Video Capture

  • Hey,

    I found the render "bug" while trying to capture my browser. (Discord and OBS). When I use the default Angle-backend for acceleration (or any directX), the captured video goes black as soon as I unfocus my browser. When I use opengl it works fine with capturing, but I lose Hardware acceleration (especially Video decode). If I switch to Vulkan backend capturing works (even unfocused) but some videos just get pink (sound is normal but the video is just an complete pink box).
    Opera is based on Chrome / Chromium, but on these it works fine. (Also Firefox).
    Tried every version of Opera (Stable, Beta, Dev) --> No Solution

    So how do I get my capturing to work (unfocused) while maintaining hardware acceleration (decoding)

    Thx for taking time
