Problem with window capture when the window is not focused


New Member
Just an observation: im not a Native American so my english can be... very curious.

So, the problem is,im trying to make a record while i do other stuff, but, the screen that is recording (a youtube video) freezes when is not focused, example, Edge if focused and recording, if i get back to OBS (maximized) the preview and the record freezes and just the audio can be heard, idk what happened this problem was not appearing the first time i used OBS

just to complement, here's a screenshot of what i'm trying to say: (Also attached), its just recording the top part from the video, and if i minimize the entire page the record preview just stop, I haven't had this problem before.

some pages that i saw said about it so i'm just saying
The option "hardware acceleration" is disabled, both from Microsoft Edge and OBS
