Question / Help Desktop White screen when "Window Capture"


New Member
Hi everyone, so i recorded videos for many years with OBS without problems, but since 2 days, when i open "window capture" and try to record browser window(firefox, Chrome...) i have a white screen. I have sound, but not image, juste white screen. I uninstall and re install GPU Driver, i clean temporary files ecc and nothing happened, same white screen, any help please? :(

Also i have Ripsaw capture card, and since 3 or 4 months with this desktop i can't record, the video stop after 2 or 3 seconds. I tried the capture card on other pc (laptop and desktop) it works perfectly on OBS... hope you can help me guys and thank you

It just happened to me as well. I fixed it by turning the hardware acceleration off in the browser settings. Firefox-Options- unclick Performance- unclick use hardware acceleration.. then restart fire fox and its fixed. Similar in Chrome...

My white screen issue with recording Google Chrome, only happens on OS X. I have tried disabling hardware acceleration but the issue still happens. I am going to try Safari and Firefox next.
