    Go to Voice and Video settings, scroll all the way down to the bottom and choose the Legacy option from "Audio Subsystem"

    I would like to have the option to view only the video stream i'm focused on. It ruins the quality for it when i have to stream the others at the same time.

    Yes, please add this!

    I have quite the beefy PC so it doesn't make me lagg or anything, but it's just ridiculously intrusive that people can just share whatever is on their screen with me without me being able to deny it. Or let me at least make it so that their audio can't be streamed to me, but I can still hear their voice or something.

    It doesn't seem like a difficult thing to implement, a simple "disable screen sharing" button

    Agreed, it's really annoying to tell 6 people they all have to turn their webcams off, because you want to play a game and not want a slideshow because Discord is forcing a video stream.

    The devs need to get on this ASAP

    They seriously need to get this added quickly... My internet doesn't like screenshare, and a few of my friends love turning on screenshare when we're all in a call together... and I don't want to be the one to tell them "Hey, my internet is dying because of your screenshare, turn it off"... we're all trying to have fun and hang out, some of them are watching the screenshare and they're often commenting on stuff they see too, but on my end, it ties up my bandwidth and lags me out of any online game I'm playing and when 2 or more of them start screensharing together it doesn't just kill my bandwidth, it also causes problems for my CPU, and I have an 8-core AMD FX Vishera... it's also only discord that does this... even just adding an option to adjust video quality would help.

    This really need's to get added it's a cpu hog when 2-3 people are screensharing and you wanna play a game plus people don't always want to see other's screens so it would be amazing feature

    Please dear god allow us to turn off other people's webcams, it lags my comp so much when I'm in game, and I effectively can't use discord.  Is this already an option and I'm missing it?

    I am in a server that is currently receiving early beta access to the in-server screen sharing, and as cool as this feature is, it kills my internet performance - I have slower internet then most, and just hang out in voice chats, but cannot disable when they want to screen share with each other. This should be an option to choose if you want to watch. Please fix this ASAP.

    I agreed it's annoying. So, I liked the idea.

    Can confirm the stream feed is still being downloaded even though you are not even participating or watching anyone in the channels stream.

     

    This means it is unnecessarily using cpu and gpu cycles and your internets bandwidth for no reason.

     

    Maybe why this feature is still in beta. Keep being vocal folks.

    @raighn agreed, adding an option to choose a static bitrate before firing up the source stream would also help. I've noticed a 720p30 stream alone eats up a great deal of bandwidth and it seemed to not really change much if changed to 480p, the bitrates are probably the same no matter what resolution.

    I got 1TB of bandwidth per month (fu comcast) and it could easily be eaten up by having my friends screen sharing as a group.

    Why the hell is this even an issue in the first place?

  • Except it's not. I literally did so yesterday, as well as the tweet, was, about calls. But it can be done on both

    I am a Desktop PC user so idk if it's a thing on mobile Discord yet. That's my only thought as to why it possibly didn't work for you.
