One of the best streaming services as of 2022, Hulu, is a platform with great TV shows and movies that many people love to watch. It even seems that once you get hooked on Hulu, you’ll think twice before taking one more subscription to Netflix or other similar streaming platforms.

On the other hand, we have Discord, the famous chat application for gamers, known for its ability to stream almost anything people want to see. So, apart from its feature of people talking on a voice chat inside its server, they can stream movie/tv show content on it.

In this blog post, we’ll show you how you can stream Hulu on Discord without a black screen.

Note: You should utilize the Discord app for streaming Hulu since it has more features and gives viewers more flexibility.

Anyways, before we explain the step-by-step process of streaming Hulu on Discord, we have to mention that the biggest problem users face is the DRM security protection which causes the black screen to show.

Important Reminder: First thing to do before you start this process is to check and see if your server has permission to share your screen with others via some third-party applications.

So, to stop the black screen from showing and you to stream Hulu on Discord without any further issues, these are the steps to take:

  1. Download the Discord app (on Windows or Mac).
  2. Turn off the hardware acceleration on your browser by opening Chrome or Microsoft Edge and clicking on the three vertical dot menu (upper right corner).
  3. From the options, choose and click on Settings.

Absolutely! You can watch Hulu with your Discord friends on your Fire TV Stick, and here are the two simple steps you need to take:

  1. Set up a Discord call.
