Do you want to enjoy your favorite Netflix shows and movies with your friends? If so, one way to do that is to stream Netflix on your Discord server. You can do this even when you’re on Discord’s free plan. We’ll show you how.

Can you stream Netflix on Discord?
Yes, you can stream Netflix on Discord as long as you meet the minimum requirements to do so.
The first requirement that goes without saying is that you must have an active Netflix plan. Second, you need a Discord server where you can stream your content. You can create your own server if you don’t already have access to one. You don’t need a Nitro subscription to stream Netflix on Discord, but without one, the quality of your stream will be limited.
With all those requirements met, you can simply access Netflix in the web browser of your Windows or Mac machine and stream the content from that browser on your Discord server.
How to Share Netflix Screen on Discord
To start playing Netflix content on Discord, first, launch your preferred web browser on your Windows or Mac computer and go to the Netflix site. Log in to your account on the site.
Keep your web browser running in the background and launch the Discord app. In the bottom left corner of the app, select “User Settings” (a gear icon).
In the left sidebar, select “Registered Games”. In the right panel, choose “Add it”.
Add it.” width=”650″ height=”292″ onload=”pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon(this);” onerror=”this.onerror=null;pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon(this);”>
In the box that opens, click the “Select” dropdown menu and choose your open web browser. Then click “Add Game”.
Press Esc to close the Discord settings window.
On the main Discord screen, in the left sidebar, click on the server where you want to stream Netflix. Then, in the bottom left corner of the app, click the monitor icon next to your web browser.
You will see a “Screen Sharing” window. Here, click on the “Select a voice channel” menu and choose the channel you want to start the broadcast on. Choose your desired streaming resolution and FPS (frames per second) in the “Stream Quality” section.
Note: If you want to stream your content in 1080p or 60 FPS, you’ll need a Discord Nitro subscription, which is $9.99/month as of November 2022.
To start streaming, at the bottom of the “Screen Sharing” window, click “Go Live.”
You will see a floating window on your screen that will allow you to watch your Netflix stream on Discord.
When you want to stop streaming, in the lower right corner of the floating window, click the “X” icon.
And this is how you do Netflix streaming on Discord. Make sure you pick a good movie and consider using a VPN to get access to more movies on Netflix. We recommend ExpressVPN as one of the best VPNs out there.
Fix black screen issue while streaming Netflix on Discord
Sometimes you may get a black screen instead of the actual content while streaming Netflix on Discord. When this happens, disable hardware acceleration in both your web browser and Discord. If that doesn’t fix the issue, run Discord with admin rights to potentially resolve it.
Disable hardware acceleration on Discord
Launch Discord and click on “User Settings” (a gear icon) in the bottom left corner of the app.
In the left sidebar, click on “Advanced”. In the right pane, disable “Hardware acceleration”.
Select “Okay” at the prompt (this will restart Discord).
Are you ready.
Disable hardware acceleration in Google Chrome
Launch Chrome, select the three dots in the top right corner, and choose “Settings.”
In the left sidebar, select “System”. In the right pane, uncheck “Use hardware acceleration when available”. Then click “Relaunch”.
That is all.
Disable hardware acceleration in Mozilla Firefox
Open Firefox, select the hamburger menu (three horizontal lines) in the upper right corner and choose “Settings”.
In the left sidebar, select “General”. In the right pane, scroll down to the “Performance” section.
In this section, disable “Use recommended performance settings”. Then uncheck “Use hardware acceleration when available”.
Reopen Firefox and your problem should be resolved.
Disable hardware acceleration in Microsoft Edge
Open Edge, select the three dots in the top right corner, and choose “Settings.”
In the left sidebar, select “System and Performance”. In the right pane, uncheck “Use hardware acceleration when available”.
Select “Restart” for the changes to take effect.
Are you ready.
Run Discord with administrator rights (Windows only)
If the above solutions didn’t work for you, try running Discord with administrator privileges to resolve your issue.
First, close Discord if it’s already running. Then, open the “Start” menu and search for “Discord”. In the application section on the right, click “Run as administrator”.
Select “Yes” on the notice. Then try streaming your Netflix content.
Now that your Netflix viewing party has started, go ahead and invite all your friends to join you in watching your favorite shows. Have fun!
