How to Stream Hulu on Discord

Discord is one of the most popular voice and chat apps for gamers. With over 150 million registered users, it grew beyond its initial purpose, and now people use Discord for various activities besides gaming. You can even host streaming parties and stream Hulu and Netflix on Discord.

Discord allows you to create private servers where you can chat with your friends, and share pictures, videos, or different files. But with the Go Live feature, you can also share your computer screen with everyone on your server.

Just like anything else about Discord, this feature too was created initially for gamers. It allowed players to broadcast their screen to their followers so they could watch the gameplay live. So, let’s see how you can share Hulu with your online friends and have some fun.

How to Stream Hulu on Discord

If you want to watch a movie together with your friends by using Discord, you’ll be happy to know that the process is fairly easy. You’ll need the latest desktop version of the Discord app, a reliable internet connection, and a Hulu subscription.

The latest version of Discord will allow you to stream with fewer issues. But keep in mind that although basic streaming is free, only users with a Discord Nitro account can stream 4k. Also, you’ll have to use the desktop app. The web version won’t allow you to stream Hulu. That said, here are the steps you need to take:

  1. Open your desktop Discord app and make sure you’re logged in with the right credentials.
  2. Open your internet browser and log into your Hulu account.

How to Stream Hulu on Discord Without Black Screen

Some users reported experiencing a Black Screen problem while streaming Hulu on Discord. That means that once the streaming begins, they can’t see anything else but a black color on their screen. This typically happens because all content on Hulu is DRM protected. The black screen is a known issue and it happens if the hardware acceleration has been enabled in your browser. To get rid of the black screen, you’ll have to disable it. Here is how you can do it in different browsers.

Google Chrome

  1. Open Chrome and click on three vertical dots to open the menu. Then go to Settings.
