    It's not a dedicated channel type, but VIDEO CHAT IS NOW AVAILABLE IN ALL SERVERS!!! Go have fun and let us know if you've got any questions! https://blog.discord.com/wave-hello-to-server-video-85dcef1128f0

  • Jarper (confused screaming)

    this will me grate for my server for movie night.

    I don't really understand why you don't go through a Group DM?

    It can support up to 10 players and you all can share your screens.


    But if you're that lazy, just hang on a bit more. Discord is developing what you want : see this gif.

    Hope it helps.

    So i was managing my personal discord server (~50 members) and I got thinking that most of my members were not using servers that much. So i asked them why, and so they responded that most of them were using more groups than servers because there is not some some features in servers that there is in groups. Those are : screensharing camera sharing.

    I actually like the idea of this so it's easier for people to instantly watch a stream without having to open their browser then look through their follows to find someone

  • VaporStrike

    It's actually already a thing. Problem is, they decided to just do a random rollout to a small % of servers, apparently. But I have a discord where an artist will screenshare her work in a regular voice channel and we can all hop in and watch.

    It works amazingly well, they really should just roll it out completely, already. Or at least let people sign up to have their servers enabled.

    Alright. I thank the two of you for your input on how to deal with this problem I have "faced"

    Thankfully at the time of these messages, I've already got everything figured out.

    Again, both of there messages helped me get to my final conclusion. So for that a thank you all.

    Peace :p

  • Hans

    This would be great to have.

  • BenB

    I think this would cause for a lot of trolls pausing the video constantly.
    An alternative is to just screenshare your video in a call with a group of friends, so you're the only one that can pause it


  • Amaroq the Kitsune

    Easy solution: Restrict the remote privileges (aka "playback control", for you youngsters) to the channel moderators by default, or make certain aspects (like pausing and fast-forward-on-resume) client-side.

    This is being tested in about 5% of servers as an experiment currently

    This is one thing I didn't understand, you can have video chat for large groups but not for servers... It's going to use the same resources anyway and if people really wanted to they are going to create a group anyway so why not have it on servers?

  • zombie9900

    I would really enjoy this. I would use this to play the jackbox series with my friends. I would love to see this feature.

    There's actually a way to do this right now, it just isn't fully released.
    On desktop only, turn on developer mode and form a link like so:
    Replace SERVERD and VOICECHANNELID with your server id and VC id respectively. Then, whenever you're connected to the voice channel, click that link and you'll be able to screenshare. In order for others to see it, they need to click the link as well.

  • Psycho_XV

    I personally would love this feature to be added also as my friends and I always share random stuff and have to back out our server to then join group dm.

  • Aselgeia

    and also cam chat on discord servers. please.

  • lonedestroyer

    Discord should add this but add a cap on how many people can join, such as in group dms.

  • kidgrit

    Ok weird thing. I just created a server, and it has this feature. You can screenshare in voice channels. the button is right where the connection info button used to be. I was trying to figure out how to get it in other servers of mine, so I created an even NEWER server, and I couldn't get this feature to appear on any V-channels there!?! It's still there, working in that one server though and I can't for the life of me figure out how I did it. All V-channels created in that server have this feature....

  • Chroma

    This would be very useful, as our server is about tech and other computer stuff. If this is still in development, I would like a sample :)

  • purpzie

    Yep, that's normal. Discord is currently testing the feature on a few percent of servers, it's currently rare but appears sometimes

  • broman

    This is currently in the works, and is available to select servers under 50 people currently (citation needed). It will be rolling out to Canary and then stable SoonTM.

  • MusicSounds

    How "bout 50+ user-ed servers? I mean will the get the functionality? (If it's not considered, pls think about just limiting the no. of users allowed in a screenshare-enabled channel a.k.a. make an option to allow screensharing for particular roles/channels only)

  • Tomas Gaming

    That would be great! There are groups, its same. On server in Web Channel max users could be 5 or so (same as in group). Than where is the matter of it? If you have more people on server they wont connect. So use group.

  • mr.aturok

    i second this option i have a freind who has it in there server and he doesnt know what to do with it i really want it


  • wiichicken

    Yeah, I need this for one of my servers

  • _grantman

  • Trum

    This feature would be so useful, waiting for the release!
