Screenshare/Stream keeps crashing

    I've been having the same issue recently. My discord crashes whenever I screen share. It not only happens often when I start screen sharing, but it also occurs randomly while streaming.

    i been having this for months now, all of my friends do not have this problem but i do black screen flickers and then discord just crashes/closes and restarts, nothing i have tried had fixed the problem. so my guess  that it's all on discords end,




    P.S i also did a test without a person viewing the stream  vs pm  with no viewers watching it works fine but as soon as anyone joins the call or joins the chat to watch the stream it slowly starts to flicker the screen and crashes

  • for me my screenshare works except for when i try sharing my whole screen, it just goes black and nothing ive tried fixed it so discord broke again lol

  • Brownie

    Yeah, it happens to me too, usually when i stream a screen, but not when i stream a game. Its insanely annoying.

  • Danny Devito

    Yes I am having a similar problem. I will be on a call with a friend, then ill go to screenshare something (i.e. Spotify, Games, Youtube, etc.). And it'll play for about 10 seconds then whatever im sharing will freeze on Discord, and will crash Discord. Sometimes I will still be able to talk to my friend, but most of the time, I have to exit out of discord from my taskbar then restart it.

  • Maybe an update with discord broke screenshare?

  • SomeoneUnknownHere

    Same problem as Kain. Streaming or screensharing anything causes discord to crash and relaunch.

  • Sobi

    I too am having the same issue


  • Tencryn

    My Discord restarts randomly primarily during screenshare but it has happened when turning my webcam on after screensharing too. I'm all up to date too.

  • Goso

    I'm currently having the same issue that sata expresses with the just entering the stream causing discord to crash, kick me out of the channel, then reset, and finally reconnect me without streaming.

    I have an issue since December update when trying to send a picture to DM or screen sharing on DM or a server, discord crashes/restart itself like when you press Ctrl+R, it happens often even after following instructions from email support, hoping to get a fix.

    I've been getting this problem since December and its insanely annoying.

    I also had a problem with the stream crashing/restarting especially when someone joins similar to Gizmo's situation.
    Try downloading Discord Canary, that has worked for several people however if that doesn't work go to user settings then Voice and Video and under Advanced, disable OpenH264 Video Codec. That one worked for me.

  • j e s s

    This is still an issue. 
    I've tried disabling OpenH264 but it doesn't fix it either. 
    It flickers black and the stream quality on the other end is constantly 144p to them despite me sharing source or 1080p. 
    The fact this plagues so many people yet no one can fix it is ridiculous.

    New to Discord and was experiencing the same issues as everyone here. I'm using Windows 10 with an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics card. Here's what worked for me:


    1. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and select NVIDIA Control Panel

    2. Within the Manage 3D Settings page, select Program Settings

    3. Select Add, find Discord, and select it

    4. Select the second dropdown menu and select High-performance NVIDIA processor

    5. Start up (or restart) Discord and the problem should be fixed


    Another solution that worked for my colleague:


    1. Run Windows Update to get the latest security patches

    2. Start up the GeForce Experience app (if you don't have it, you might have to install it)

    3. Download and install the latest update

    4. Start up (or restart) Discord and the problem should be fixed


    Hope this helps!

    I'm on macbook and experiencing the same problem. I've tried a bunch of stuff like turning of Hardware acceleration and removing and downloading discord again. No matter what it still restarts the moment I hit go live

  • Sub

    I'm having the same exact problem as Danny Devito, every time i screenshare or stream, my Discord freezes and i have t close it completely. Please tell me what to do.

  • Kain-Maxey

    I'm having the same issue. Any time I try to screenshare anywhere, it restarts the whole thing. I've found out it has something to do with using sound.

  • 𝕳𝖎𝖗𝖔

    Everytime i press my screen share button and select which screen to share as soon as i press okay the whole discord crashes and then opens discords and im back to square one

  • Sobi

    Discord’s recent update addressed the issue it seems. Thanks guys.

  • Yokorose

    I have discord game streaming working just fine before december and the second a update come out in that month it just now randomly crashes when ever i stream something over discord so friend can watch . it does it anywhere between 15 to 20 mins then crashes

  • Dado

    My issue is basically identical to the one Gizmo has, except the first time I tried to fix this it actually worked: I tried to use my dedicated nvidia graphics card instead of my integrated one and it actually let me do it. After that nothing. I even contacted customer service and they couldn't offer me any solutions. The recent update also didnt change a thing so rip

    Having the same problem with my bf, but we solved it going back to Skype.

    Actually its stream service is much better than Discord's.

  • Max

    Still having issues with my discord stream / screensharing. The quality randomly jumps all over the place, even with 720p/15fps and a static image. Text is absolutely unreadable and thus this bug renders this feature useless for me. I'm going to cancel my nitro after 2 years... It's sad, because this feature worked so well, until maybe December 2019.

    PS: Nope, reinstalling Discord / Nvidia Drivers / Windows didn't help at all. The issue still persists for me and there is no way to fix it.

  • peak 3

    I just updated today so I don't know if the problem is still happening. I have tried to uninstall Discord, I have tried to get different versions of discord nothing works. Discord need to get their shit together 

  • Dado

    Or at least acknowledge the problem on their Twitter or something. There's clearly a solution, we just have to find it and any kind of help could be pretty useful

  • poi

    I'm also having this issue. I could screenshare for like 5 minutes then it crashes/randomly restarts itself. I've been trying to contact Discord but none of the method they suggested helped me. It's been like this for a while and it's getting annoying.

  • ive been having this issue for a rlly long time too i tried emailing discord a few times but none of the solutions worked for me i hope they fix this

  • Jectt

    When screen sharing: does the screen get really trashy and pixel filled, then out right freeze for anyone? Constantly swap US east, to US west, Japan, etc, just to make it better? 

    I have 100mbps download and 11mbps upload and the individual i'm with has roughly the same. What could be the issue? 


  • Dado

    Yeah actually I solved it, I did the clean update thing in GeForce Experience and it solved itself
