Fixing Sources That Only Display Black

Tweaking XSplit Broadcaster's Video Processing mode can make a difference in many cases like this.

If display issues occur when trying to add a video file as a source, try the following:


Solution 1

  • Go to Tools > Settings and on the Advanced tab, switch the option from Prefer CPU for video processing to Prefer GPU for video processing.

Selecting Prefer GPU in XSplit Broadcaster's Tools > Settings > Advanced tab


Solution 2

  • Go to Tools > Settings and on the Advanced tab, uncheck Use Media Foundation Engine for video playback.

This option is only available if you have your Video processing mode set to Prefer GPU.

Unchecking "Use Media Foundation Engine for video playback" in the Advanced tab settings of XSplit Broadcaster
