Latest Windows 10 build causes green screen flashes while broadcasting games

Microsoft finally started implementing some modern gaming features into Windows 10 with recent Preview builds. The previously-released build 15019 was especially rich with gaming features with the new Game mode, Beam support, and more.

However, as the latest build 15025 for Windows 10 was released, the first issues regarding gaming features started to appear. One of the issues that Microsoft warned Insiders about is a strange bug that may cause the broadcast live review window in the Game bar to flicker Green screen while broadcasting.

Certain hardware configurations may cause the broadcast live review window in the Game bar to flash Green while you are Broadcasting. This does not affect the quality of your broadcast and is only visible to the Broadcaster.

Microsoft wasn’t specific about this bug. The company only stated it may be provoked by ‘certain hardware configurations’. So, we neither know what causes the issue nor what the proper solution for it is.

On the other hand, if this issue doesn’t affect your broadcast, your audience won’t see any difference. Only broadcasters affected won’t be able to Preview their broadcasts normally.

Bugs like this are quite usual in Windows 10 builds, especially if we take into consideration that the gaming features are just one build old. So, we’re sure Microsoft will fix this and all other similar flaws before these features become available to the general public with the Creators Update.
