@LukasDoe Yes i have noticed the same issue. In my experience this only happens if you share a screen with overlapping windows. Sharing a screen with only one window seems to stop the flickering.

Screensharing issue - maybe this helps: Could be a screen resolution issue.

I have an issue with the client. If I make a screensharing session my screen is flickering for the other participants. Have someone else similar observations / expierences?

This may be for a super small amount of people, but disabling my Oculus Rift CV1 USB devices fixed my microphone. You can either just unplug it or copy the following rules into /etc/udev/rules.d/disable-usb-device.rules

ACTION=="add", ATTR{idVendor}=="2833", ATTR{idProduct}=="0211", RUN="/bin/sh -c 'echo 0 >/sys/\$devpath/authorized'"
ACTION=="add", ATTR{idVendor}=="2833", ATTR{idProduct}=="3031", RUN="/bin/sh -c 'echo 0 >/sys/\$devpath/authorized'"

thanks @louisnow. the workaround fix' it for me: mv /usr/share/teams/resources/app.asar.unpacked/node_modules/slimcore/bin/rect-overlay /usr/share/teams/resources/app.asar.unpacked/node_modules/slimcore/bin/rect-overlay-broken

For anyone suffering from the black screen with a red border when trying to screen share, Microsoft has acknowledged the problem and there's a temporary workaround.

You can use a X compositor as a workaround. For example when I run picom screen share works again (I run i3wm via xinitrc so no compositor active by default)

@Mexx77 To downgrade, uninstall teams. Clone the repo. git clone Checkout to the right commit and run makepkg -scri

Now to prevent automatic upgrades, add it to IgnorePkg

@maurice-mueller I have actually tried that earlier today but same issue - no share screen button. My computer must be missing something...

Workaround for screen sharing: the web app with Chrome browser can share your screen as well. I'm using that for now.
