  • obs-studio

    OBS Studio - Free and open source software for live streaming and screen recording

    Tip: Use OBS ( to create a virtual webcam and use scenes to switch back and forth between audio sources, video sources - everything without switching sources in any app. Just pull all your sources into one single app and push out one video and audio stream into whatever you want to use. The overall experience is so much better than selecting sources in Discord/browsers/whatever.

  • Electron

    Now on Electron , which is a Chromium fork, you'd use getUserMedia for desktop capture too as noted on

    The Discord Desktop app uses Electron and their Electron fork's source code is available on Github. If you take a look at their repo you'll see that one of the patches they apply is this one that disables getUserMedia.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
