Black screen when trying to stream any game on discord

Issue:
Every time I try to stream any game on discord I get a black screen, not on the emulator, but only on the stream.
Tried:

  • Reinstall citra.
  • Tested other games.
  • Tested other discord servers.
  • Change graphics settings and layout settings.
  • The game works completely normal without a issue or drop on frames, only the screen on the stream is completely blacked out.
  • It only works if I try to stream my whole screen.

System Information

  • Operating System: HP laptop win.7 pro x64 bit
  • CPU: 2.60ghz
  • GPU:
  • Citra Version (found in title bar): Citra Nightly 1627
  • Game: every game (tested about 5)
  • Screenshot of Issue (include the full Citra window including titlebar):

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

Have you tried streaming your screen instead of citra itself? Whilst I haven’t encountered this issue myself, when I ran into this issue with some steam games, discord wouldn’t stream the game itself (black screen), but it did stream my entire screen (game included).

On an unrelated note, to update your graphics drivers:
Download win64_15.33.51.5146.zip (direct link) from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29802/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-33-?product=72056

Then follow this guide to install it: https://www.howtogeek.com/343287/how-to-fix-the-driver-being-installed-is-not-validated-for-this-computer-on-intel-computers/
Because you GPU is problematic for citra, you may also want to disable New 3DS Mode in emulation>configuration>system to prevent potential freezes.

Yeah just updated my GPU driver but still the same issue.
And yes it works when I try to stream my whole screen, although it’s kind of troublesome always streaming all of the screen.

Just tried the new 3ds mode and some things and is still there


Works fine if I stream all the screen tho

Ignore the bot, it’s dump when it comes to old GPU’s sometimes. Regardless, not sure how to solve your problem. Mainly because I don’t know whether the issue is from discord or citra. So I’m afraid you’ll have to use the ‘‘stream whole screen’’ option to stream citra for now unfortunately.

Yeah, probably some issue with discord streaming the application since it sometimes gets weird with some games. But anyway ty !
