You live far away from your friends and want to create a watch party, so you can spill the tea and watch your favorite movie together. We understand your needs!
Netflix recommends you create watch parties via UNKNOWN TAG — insservice. But you also can do this with Discord. Just make sure you create a small party for your loved ones and ensure that no one records your screen share.
Otherwise, Netflix will mark it as violating the law, so they can sue you. But once you prepared yourself and your friends for the small watch party, use this guide on how to stream Netflix on Discord.
You can do this on your Windows, macOS computers, mobile phone, or tablet. But beware that it may be illegal in some regions. Also, if you stream content outside the built-in Netflix Party tool, the service can mark it as violating its rules.
You should consider it, once you decide to launch a watch party with your closed ones. You should also beware that the service may ban your account for a possible violation of the rules. Especially if you are a blogger that monetizes this activity.
Launch the Discord app, and open your favorite browser and Netflix. That’s all the preparation steps for both systems. After this, stick to the following guidelines to stream Netflix for your friends:
From now you are streaming Netflix on Discord to your close ones. You should set the Go Live menu. Otherwise, your friends will see a black display rather than a series. But if you witness this glitch even with the Go Live feature, use the following fixing measures.
If you still have problems with the watch party, use those measures to fix this issue. They are easy to implement, so you can fix them within minutes.
Try to run Discord under admin rights. It gives you more control over the application.
All you need to do is right-click on the application and choose Run as admin. If it has a desktop shortcut, click there. If you don’t have a shortcut on the desktop, write Discord in the search bar near Windows.
This feature was initially supposed to improve graphics. But real-life situations like this can cause more harm than good. So it is worth trying to disable this feature for good. You should do it both in Discord and your browser. In this case, your changes won’t affect other apps like Photoshop or Premiere Pro that rely on acceleration.
Here is how you can turn off acceleration on Discord:
Beware that the Discord app automatically restarts after this. Try to screen share Netflix on Discord. If you still witness a black screen, disable the acceleration on your browser. We will show you how to do it in Chrome, but overall guidelines stay similar in other browsers:
If you have just a mobile phone or tablet, you can launch a watch party. Follow this instruction to launch streaming Netflix on Discord from your mobile:
From now on your friends should see your Netflix on Discord. Once you decide to stop the party, tap on Stop Sharing.
You should consider your circumstances before you try to make a watch party on Discord. The only fully legal way to launch a stream party with your friends is by using the Teleparty service. So, consider the risks if you decide to launch a Netflix discord stream.
Service could ban you even when you steam it to the friend's group. The main reason for it is that you are violating the rules of the service. But if you stream it for a public view, they can even file you.
If you finally decide to take the risks and watch Netflix with friends who live far away, you have two choices. You can do it both on your computer or the phone. Just make sure that no one is recording this stream, and don’t try to monetize this activity.
Unfortunately, there is no way to schedule it there. You only can launch it in real-time.
It’s a complicated question. According to Netflix’s Terms and Conditions, streaming outside your household violates their laws. Whether you get into real legal problems for streaming Netflix on Discord, depends on your region’s laws and the intentions for sharing copyrighted content.
No, it’s illegal. This counts as the public view that brings you monetization possibilities (even when you launch a stream for your 10-15 friends). So, it counts as an illegal action, and Netflix has a right to file you in court.
If you do this previously, maybe Netflix has banned your account. If your account is not in the shadowban, you can have the wrong settings on your computer.
