    I am in a server that is currently receiving early beta access to the in-server screen sharing, and as cool as this feature is, it kills my internet performance - I have slower internet then most, and just hang out in voice chats, but cannot disable when they want to screen share with each other. This should be an option to choose if you want to watch. Please fix this ASAP.

    I agreed it's annoying. So, I liked the idea.

    Yes, just like mute button, there's should be another button to toggle "Voice only" for those users need to save bandwidth while still able to chat within the server group.

    Can confirm the stream feed is still being downloaded even though you are not even participating or watching anyone in the channels stream.

     

    This means it is unnecessarily using cpu and gpu cycles and your internets bandwidth for no reason.

     

    Maybe why this feature is still in beta. Keep being vocal folks.

    They seriously need to get this added quickly... My internet doesn't like screenshare, and a few of my friends love turning on screenshare when we're all in a call together... and I don't want to be the one to tell them "Hey, my internet is dying because of your screenshare, turn it off"... we're all trying to have fun and hang out, some of them are watching the screenshare and they're often commenting on stuff they see too, but on my end, it ties up my bandwidth and lags me out of any online game I'm playing and when 2 or more of them start screensharing together it doesn't just kill my bandwidth, it also causes problems for my CPU, and I have an 8-core AMD FX Vishera... it's also only discord that does this... even just adding an option to adjust video quality would help.

    @raighn agreed, adding an option to choose a static bitrate before firing up the source stream would also help. I've noticed a 720p30 stream alone eats up a great deal of bandwidth and it seemed to not really change much if changed to 480p, the bitrates are probably the same no matter what resolution.

    I got 1TB of bandwidth per month (fu comcast) and it could easily be eaten up by having my friends screen sharing as a group.

    This really need's to get added it's a cpu hog when 2-3 people are screensharing and you wanna play a game plus people don't always want to see other's screens so it would be amazing feature

    How do we get this feature more traction?

    We don't. Discord's too busy adding more important features, like animated server icons you need to overpay for or trying too hard to be Yet Another Game Launcher Literally Nobody Uses

    Yes! I have a GTX 1060 but an old Core i3, screenshares more than half my framerate

    Add me to the list of people that wants this option. My computer and internet speeds can handle it but I don't want to hear my friends game which is linked to user volume, just like voice and it does hit my performance enough to be seriously annoying. This has been a problem for 10 months at least from what I can see, I really wish it'd get addressed.
