Black screen while window capturing Streamlabs Widget

If you are attempting to use Streamlabs via window capture in either version of OBS you may stumble into the issue of having it appear as a black screen instead of the normal green screen.

To solve this issue:

  • In chrome click the 3 horizontal bars in the top right and click settings. (Or type chrome://settings in the url bar)
  • Scroll down to "show advanced settings" then scroll towards the bottom
  • Under "hardware" uncheck "use hardware acceleration".
