I start my stream on but its just a black screen with a cursor

Mar 28, 2012 9:11 PM

I set up VHScrCap and FME to stream a video game on However, when the stream begins the desktop shows up but when the video game starts the screen is black with just the cursor visible. What is happening to have it not show up? Thanks

    Likely a DirectX overlay issue. Many screen capture programs can't see the DirectX output which means all you will get is a black screen and the mouse moving over it. Try disabling DirectX in your game if you can. Your performance will likely go down, but you should be able to see the video on the output.
