League of Legends is always a black screen

    I'm trying to stream Lol, but every time I try to set it up the whole screen is black. I've tried capturing game, window, desktop, and using global settings, but nothing is working. It's all black but at the same time, I can see my mouse cursor, and the custum skin for it that lol puts on it when you're in game.

    Are you running the game fullscreen?

    And Game Capture doesn't work? Could you post a log of when you tried to stream?

    You need to run league of legends in borderless window mode (fullscreen windows), or a regular windowed mode.

    If you don't want to use a windowed mode, you have to use game capture or a capture card to capture fullscreen games.

    Your log is also incomplete, you need to close OBS before opening it.

    That's weird, because I am 99% sure that I can stream League of Legends in fullscreen mode through Software Capture.

    Going to doublecheck this when I get home, but I am pretty sure it is right because my game ran at ~120fps while streaming, and I never go that high in borderless mode.

    It might work, but it would probably flicker a ton, if it works at all.

    I have streamed LoL and Dota fullscreen (not window) and they work fine.

    I do get the occasional black screen but I restart OBS and if that doesn't solve it I restart both the game and OBS, starting OBS first then the game.

    Actually this is the confusing thing for me, I see people get this issue all the time however when I do fullscreen league of legends with OBS (Using Software Capture) or Xsplit (Using Screen Region) I never once got the flickering.

    In order for you to stream League of Legends, you need to go to your video options and set it to borderless.
    Then, in OBS, use software capture.
    That way should work.
