Discord crashes when trying to screen share

I can't share my screen on discord without it crashing... The weird thing is it works fine if I run discord via cli.
What I tried:
- turning discord's hardware acceleration on/off
- starting discord without picom
- ...

Some helpful information about my system:
I'm using dwm, picom and I launch discord with rofi.
In nvidia-settings I have force full composition enabled (this helped me fix screen tearing).

I'm having the same problem on my system for a very long time

Re: Discord crashes when trying to screen share

I've been having this issue as of recently with AwesomeWM and I think I just found a quick solution. Screen sharing has always working in other WMs like GNOME and Plasma, even in Wayland with NVIDIA proprietary graphics, just not on Awesome for me. I recently just solved this because you can only screen share windows that are open on the current tag. Hopefully this gets you a bit closer to figuring out your problem but it seems like a window manager problem to me.

Re: Discord crashes when trying to screen share

In my installation, I fixed this by disabling Wayland. I know it might not be ideal... but it works.

I apologize in advance if some of my comments or replies don't make any sense. I am currently dealing with a bit of an alcohol problem, and I might be drunk at the time! Sorry and thank you for understanding!

Re: Discord crashes when trying to screen share

I have exactly the same problem on BSPWM. discord_arch_electron works as a solution too, but it has some performance issues for me. The workaround I found is that the discord shouldn't be the only window on the current desktop at the moment when you click "share your screen" button

Re: Discord crashes when trying to screen share

I use dwm, and Galestrike's workaround worked for me. If I try to screenshare in "maximized" mode, where only Discord is visible (even if other windows are open on the same workspace), it crashes.
If I switch to a tiled layout and have discord visible next to something else, I can start a share just fine.
Once it is started, I can switch back to maximized without crashing.
