Sharing your favorite movies and TV shows with friends and family has never been easier, thanks to the rise of streaming services like Netflix. However, if you’re trying to share your screen on a video call using Zoom, you may have encountered an issue where the video plays but the screen is just black. Don’t worry, there are a few simple steps you can take to fix this problem and enjoy your favorite content with others.
Step 1: Check Your Device Settings
The first thing you should do is check your device settings to make sure that everything is set up correctly. On a Windows computer, go to the “Settings” app and select “Devices.” From there, click on “Display” and make sure that the “Scale and layout” setting is set to 100%. If it’s not, adjust it until it is.
Step 2: Update Your Zoom App
If you’re still experiencing issues with a black screen when sharing your Netflix content on Zoom, it may be time to update the app. Open the Zoom app and go to “Settings” in the top right corner of the screen. From there, select “Check for Updates” and follow the prompts to download and install any updates that are available.
Step 3: Use a Different Browser
If you’re still having trouble sharing your Netflix content on Zoom, it may be worth trying a different browser. Some users have reported success using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox instead of Safari or Edge. Simply open the browser of your choice and log in to your Netflix account as usual.
Step 4: Use a Different Device
If all else fails, it may be worth trying to share your screen from a different device altogether. Some users have reported success using an iPad or iPhone instead of a computer. Simply open the Netflix app on your device and log in as usual.
Sharing your favorite movies and TV shows with friends and family is a great way to stay connected, especially during these challenging times. By following these simple steps, you should be able to share your Netflix content on Zoom without any issues. Happy streaming!
