Did you know that it is possible to stream Netflix through Discord? While the hit indie chat show is primarily used for gaming, it also has various technical applications for streaming services like Netflix. Netflix currently doesn’t have an official party watch feature, but a third-party Chrome attachment titled Netflix Party does the same thing.
With that said, if you’re a Netflix subscriber who prefers to stream Netflix with your friends via Discord, here’s how to do it.
How to Stream Netflix on Discord
The first thing you are going to need is a Netflix subscription. With Netflix recently cracking down on its password policies, password sharing for the streamer is on its way to becoming a thing of the past, so this might be the only way to watch Netflix with your friends digitally if they’re hell-bent on in not doing it. paying your own subscription. Once you’re signed into your Netflix account, make sure you’re also signed into Discord and any servers you plan to stream on.
Next, you will need to go to Discord’s “Settings” menu. Here you will find the “Registered Games” section under the “Activity Settings” tab. You should see a list showing all of your programs currently linked to Discord. If your web browser isn’t on that list, click the link at the top that says “Don’t see your game? Add it!” From there, select the web browser of your choice and link it to Discord (Google Chrome is recommended).
After that, join the server you plan to use for streaming. Once you do that, you should see an icon in the bottom left corner of your screen titled “Screen Sharing.” Click on that, and you’ll get plenty of options to customize your screen sharing experience, like the tab you want to share, the resolution you want, the frame rate you want to stream, and more. Once you choose these settings to your liking, click the button in the bottom right corner that says “Go Live.” Just like that, you should be ready to stream Netflix with your friends on the Discord server.
Issues to watch out for when streaming Netflix on Discord
There are some technical issues that those who want to stream Netflix on Discord may run into, such as audio or video issues. To avoid these issues, the best bet would be to have someone with the best PC or Mac and a Netflix subscription do the streaming. We recommend using Google Chrome as your browser for streaming, as it receives updates regularly. If both methods don’t lead to a smoother streaming experience, you can also try lowering your streaming settings.
Depending on where you live, you may also want to take into account the laws in your country or state for streaming content on services like Discord. While it’s not explicitly illegal in most areas, you should still be aware of copyright laws in your particular location.
