Free Discord Overlay 1.0.1
Based on the idea of Discord Overlay HostI made an updated version as it wasn't updated in 5 years and accumulated a lot of issues.
- Run the .exe
- Within Discord go to user settings ► Game activity ► Add it ► Select "Discord Overlay".
- Also in Discord, user settings ► Overlay ► Check "enable overlay in game".
- Within OBS add a capture window source and select Discord Overlay.
- Add a chroma key filter to the Discord Overlay source, set the HTML color to 2e3136, similarity to 1, smoothness to 1, opacity to 74, contrast to 0.39 and the rest of the values to default.
- Windows 7+
- A DirectX 11 capable GPU to run the program.
Why not use Discord Streamkit ?
The people behind Streamkit clearly never really used it. The link it generates works only for the specific room of the specific server you targeted. It means that if you move to another room/server you need to recreate another link.
With this solution you only need to set it up once and that's it.
Why is it greyish ?
I get that it's not easy to chroma key that color but if there was a green background it would look awful as the Discord's overlay is partially transparent. You'd have a disgusting green under the overlay that you couldn't make disappear.
The current RGB color of the background is 46, 49, 54.
Why can't I resize the window ?
The way Discord detects if it will display its overlay on a window depends of 2 factors :
- Does it use the GPU ?
- Does it have dimensions of at least 769*433 pixels ?

How to Capture Discord Audio With OBS
Voice and text messaging platform Discord is one of the most popular pieces of gaming software available. Discord helps to bring communities of gamers together and it’s great for making friends and talking to people who have the same interests as you.
Discord lets you post gifs, emotes, and other pieces of media and voice chat with other people across games. 250 million people have Discord accounts and that makes it likely that other streamers and people you play games will be talking to you through the platform. It also means that they will probably be using Discord to talk to you while you stream.
Why Discord is Great for Streams
Discord is a brilliant tool for streamers because it lets you communicate without having to alt-tab to see what people are sending you.
Voice chat means that whatever game you’re playing, you can talk to other streamers, your friends and the people in your community. Discord’s TTS (text to speech) feature also lets you hear text messages, without having to read them. For multiplayer games that do not have a voice chat feature, Discord allows you to talk to each other while you’re playing.
Viewers tune into your Twitch streams for entertainment and Discord can be one way of giving that to them. Your viewers can listen in, being part of the jokes that you share with your friends, seeing how your team comes up with tactics in difficult games, and celebrating with you when you and your teammates shout about your victory.
Discord can help to grow stream engagement and fan loyalty. Viewers may leave a message in chat or tune in just to hear you and your friends laugh, have fun and enjoy games together.
How to Capture Discord Audio with OBS
To broadcast your Discord audio and to let viewers listen to the conversations you’re having with your gaming friends and teammates, you’ll need to capture your Discord audio with OBS.
OBS, the open source streaming tool, allows you to capture audio from your desktop with just a few clicks.
To capture your Discord audio, first, you need to add a desktop audio source to your scene. To do this, click the plus sign (+) in the area that says “Sources” and then select “Desktop Audio”. You can have up to two desktop audio sources, so you can still broadcast the audio that is coming from the game or program that you are playing or using.
After clicking desktop audio, you will need to go into the settings of OBS and edit it so that the correct audio is being captured. To do this, just go to Settings > Audio and look for the option for Desktop Audio (or Desktop Audio 2, if you already had a Desktop Audio source setup).
Select the Desktop Audio (or Desktop Audio 2) dropdown menu and select the audio source. If you are using headphones to stream and you are listening to your Discord audio through these headphones then select that option. Or, select your computer speakers from the list. Whatever you use to listen to Discord, click on it, then click “Apply” and “OK” to save these settings.
This should allow viewers to hear your Discord audio. However, you can also take some steps to boost the quality of this audio.
How to Boost Your Discord Audio Quality
One easy way to boost your Discord audio quality while you’re streaming is to adjust the volume. Next to the list of sources in OBS, there are different sliders for each audio source. There will be a slider for your desktop audio sources (such as Discord and the game you’re playing), the microphone you’re using and any other form of audio input that you have added.
Make sure that your viewers can hear you, your Discord, and your game during the stream. If you, your game, or your Discord are much louder than another, your viewers won’t be able to hear what you are all saying and may leave your stream. To test your audio, run a short test stream and watch it live or save your recording in OBS and watch it later so you can hear what it sounds like.
You’ll also want to get a high quality microphone. One of the best microphones for streaming is the Blue Yeti, while gaming headset microphones such as the HyperX Cloud Flight used by Shroud is also known for its quality.
How Else Can You Entertain Your Viewers With Audio?
Discord isn’t the only way that you can entertain your viewers with audio. OBS.Live, the stream management tool from StreamElements, offers Media Request integration in OBS.
With Media Request, you can take YouTube video requests from your viewers. If they have a funny video, or a great song that they’d like to share, then they can do that with just a few clicks. They can make requests for free, with Bits, or by using loyalty points, you can choose this in the settings.
OBS.Live puts Media Request in OBS so managing requests and changing the settings of the feature can be done without alt tabbing.
OBS.Live also integrates Chat, Activity Feed and your favorite StreamElements tools like Tipping, Chatbot, and Alerts.

And Marina in white tight-fitting trousers and a blue sleeveless button-down blouse with a small collar and an open back. The outfits stunningly emphasized the harmony, beauty and grace of the bodies of mother and daughter. This is probably why all the passing men turned around after them. Casting greasy glances at their wonderful magnificent figures.
They stared at the girl's long naked legs and her mother's elastic appetizing chic ass.
She says she decided what you want. So don't believe in miracles. Time passed. Already in September, studies have begun, and I, together with my beloved girl, are going to the university in my father's, now mine, car (thanks to. A pebble).
