Why Discord Stream Crashes When Someone Joins?

Missing, corrupted, or outdated drivers may cause several issues for your Discord. Sometimes, the version you are using contains errors that the developers haven’t addressed yet because the software might not be compatible with your specific device, whether because of the processor, the model, or the graphic card. Even irrelevant input/output devices can mess up Discord due to incompatibility.

Can I use Discord while streaming?

Yes, you can chat with your friends or use other basic Discord functions while streaming without having any problem.

So make sure that you don’t talk over each other to avoid making the stream difficult to follow for viewers.

How do I fix a black screen when streaming Discord?

Some users have fixed the black screen by having Discord in window mode instead of in full-screen. Of course, this trick applies to PCs or laptops only. Another reason might be that you are sharing the screen of an official paid website, like Netflix, which will get blacked out automatically.
