Which Web Video SDK version?

  2. Start sharing screen

Device (please complete the following information):

  • Device: e.g. Macbook Pro
  • OS: Mac OS 12

Hi @superprokid,

Just to make sure I’m understanding correctly, you’re clicking allow on the pop up for screen sharing, but it’s still getting the error in your console afterwards? If so, have you been able to reproduce this error with the sample application?


There’s no popup, it’s just saying user deny screen share

Got it. That may be an issue with your Safari settings. Can you check that the screen sharing option for localhost (or your deployed application site) is set to ‘ask’? You can access this while you have your application open in the browser, then selecting Safari(in toolbar) → Preferences → Websites → Screen Sharing. I’ve attached a screenshot, as well


I already tried it but still no pop up

Hi, same problem over here ;(

@rehema.zoom any solution for this error?

Hi @superprokid,

Are you getting this same error when working with the video SDK sample application in safari? While testing with it, I was unable to reproduce the error.



If a website is requesting permission to access your screen in Safari, you can deny the request by clicking on the “Deny” button. If you accidentally deny the request, you can go to the Safari menu, select “Preferences,” then go to the “URL” tab and select “Screen Recording” in the left sidebar. From there, you can allow or deny specific websites access to your screen.
