Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So, I'm using a few different approaches to streaming my screen to Twitch.tv. I've used the https://github.com/wargio/Twitch-Streamer-Linux approach and the https://github.com/Pholey/Xstreamer approach.

All of them have the same results; audio is captured and streamed, mouse is visible in the video capture, but everything else is black. I would say that the video isn't being captured at all, but the mouse is visible which is strange.

I am using the default ffmpeg that comes with Ubuntu and I'm using Ubuntu 13.10.

Any ideas why I'm getting that result?
