Want to share a Netflix evening with your friends on Discord, but don’t know where to start? Did you know that most streaming problems, such as black screens, can be solved with just a few clicks? Don’t panic, we’ll guide you step by step to stream Netflix on Discord without hassle.

How do I stream Netflix on Discord?

Do you dream of sharing your favorite Netflix series and movies with your friends on Discord? It’s easier than you think.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you get there smoothly.

  1. Open Discord and connect to a server :

    The first step is to launch Discord and connect to a server where you want to share your screen. Make sure you have the necessary permissions to broadcast.

  2. Open Netflix in a web browser :

    Then open your favorite browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, etc.) and log in to your Netflix account. Choose the movie or series you want to watch.

  3. Disable hardware acceleration in Discord :

    To avoid black screen problems, it’s crucial to disable hardware acceleration. To do this, go to Discord settings, then to the “Appearance” tab. Scroll down to find the “Hardware acceleration” option and deactivate it. This allows you to get around certain graphic compatibility problems.

  4. Sharing the browser screen via Discord :

    Once hardware acceleration has been disabled, return to your Discord server. Click on the screen-sharing icon (a screen with an arrow) at the bottom left of your screen. Select the browser in which Netflix is open. Be sure to select the browser window and not the entire application to avoid interruptions.

  5. Disable hardware acceleration in the browser :

    For hassle-free broadcasting, we also recommend disabling hardware acceleration in your browser. For example, in Chrome, go to Settings, then to “System” and disable the “Use hardware acceleration if available” option.

  6. Start broadcast :

    Once all these steps have been completed, you can start broadcasting. Your friends will now be able to see what you’re watching on Netflix directly via Discord. Make sure the sound is on and adjust the volume to your preference.

Now you’re ready to enjoy a Netflix evening with your friends on Discord. If you encounter any problems, don’t forget to check that all the steps have been followed correctly, including disabling hardware acceleration. And above all, have fun!

However, it sometimes happens that despite all these precautions, a black screen persists during broadcast. To solve this annoying problem, a few additional adjustments may be necessary.

How to share your Netflix screen and get around the black screen?

To share your Netflix screen on Discord without encountering the black screen, a few adjustments are necessary. First, disable hardware acceleration in Discord and your browser. In Discord, go to Settings, then to the “Appearance” tab and deactivate the “Hardware acceleration” option. For your browser, e.g. Chrome, go to Settings, then “System” and deactivate “Use hardware acceleration if available”.

Then launch Discord in administrator mode. This often helps solve compatibility problems. Right-click on the Discord icon and select “Run as administrator”.

Once you’ve completed these steps, open Netflix in your browser, log in to your account and choose the content you want to stream. Go back to Discord, click on the screen-sharing icon, select your browser window and start broadcasting. Your friends will now be able to see what you’re watching without interruption.

Requirements for streaming Netflix on Discord

To stream Netflix on Discord, a few requirements must be met. First, you must have an active Netflix subscription. Without it, you won’t be able to access the content you want to share. Next, you need to be a member of a Discord server. If you don’t have one, create one. Alternatively, join an existing server where you have the necessary permissions to share your screen.

For an optimal streaming experience, a Discord Nitro subscription is recommended. Although you can broadcast without Nitro, this subscription allows you to broadcast in high quality, up to 1080p and 60 FPS. This guarantees better picture quality and a smoother experience for your friends watching along with you.

Finally, make sure you have a stable Internet connection. Streaming video consumes a lot of bandwidth, and an unstable connection could lead to interruptions or poor broadcast quality. By following these few requirements, you’ll be ready to share your Netflix evenings on Discord without worry.
