  1. Guessing the latest update has continued to make streaming the app on Discord even worse than before.  Last time, the stream would have trouble either showing or not showing the tool bar, when I move my mouse on the project.  Now the top bar keeps confusing itself for either Windows 10 or Windows 7 while flickering every half second on the stream.  I know that sounds confusing but I'm getting to the point where I can't stream art anymore on Discord.

  2. For the past several months, I've tried out using Discord's streaming system with Paint.net.  Up until now, it's had no issues.  Now, for some reason, whenever I stream it, my screen flickers between three stages:  Full view, Letterbox view (no toolboxes shown) and quick black-outs.  I've tested streaming on Picarto and streamed a game on Discord to test if it was perhaps my computer.  Only Discord does this right now.  Not sure how to fix flickering issue.

    Maybe... with paint.net 4.1, something made your system run in hardware accelerated GPU mode while previously it was running in software mode.

    Well, turning off the Hardware accelerated rendering (GPU) has returned my stream window to normal.  So a big thanks to you for that.  But why did it do that in the first place?  What's in patch 4.1 that could have caused that?  And most importantly is it dangerous to have it off?

  4. I've been using paint.net for quite some time now and I recently started streaming for the past few months with no hiccups to report.  However, that changed when for some reason my stream screen doesn't show the image I'm working on but everything else from the program is displayed.  Colors, layers, timeline etc.  I've uninstall and reinstalled Streamlab OBS thinking the streaming service was messing up...didn't work.  Tried the OBS Studio next to see if it was Streamlab glitching.  What shocked me more is that it was doing the same exact thing as the previous OBS was doing.  So it seems paint.net's main projects don't want to be picked up  by my stream.  Why is that and how do I fix it?
