When I start to record my screen (using both OBS and SimpleScreenRecorder), it only records the initial screen when I start the recording and it only records the pointer movement and its changes.

It won't record any window on top of it (initial screen). But, it works fine (apart from lags) if I do a Window Capture (in OBS using XCapture).

Fail to record screen

It's laggy on the gif, but on my actual screen, it blinks like crazy (seen trough OBS or SimpleScreenRecorder).

If I did this, I won't capture any screenshots anymore (reboot will fix). It would also capture that static initial screen.

I don't think the problem is the OBS nor SimpleScreenRecorder, it's rather the desktop or something else.

SimpleScreenRecorder log:
