Streaming movies and games from companies such as HBO Max and then streaming them elsewhere at the same time might seem redundant. However, you might want to do this when you want to watch a movie or game with friends and discuss what’s happening in real time. Using a streaming platform is a good option for this process.
So, how does one stream HBO Max through Discord? In general, you can’t, well not legally. To avoid copyright infringement, HBO Max does not authorize screenshots, screen recordings, or other illegal activity. The same thing happens with Discord. But what about non-copyright content?
It is possible to stream HBO Max on Discord depending on the content. Furthermore, it’s also possible to stream HBO Max using and use Teleparty, which is a great way to get friends altogether. To utilize this feature you need to download the right extension to your browser and then you can then share the link with whomever you want to.
Whoever has the link is able to watch the stream. As mentioned, it’s important to consider that it is actually against the law to do that, as is streaming on all apps.
Despite the risks, streaming live is a great way to hang out with your friends online. You can watch movies or shows while you chat with them and you can also play games together online.
How To Stream HBO Max On Discord
Follow these simple instructions on how to stream HBO Max on Discord
To start streaming on HBO Max on Discord, you must first get the Discord App. Download Discord from Play Store (Android) and other app stores if you are an Apple user or use other smart devices. When you have successfully downloaded the app on to step 2.
To watch HBO Max on Discord, you have to turn off hardware acceleration in your browsers. You do this by disabling hardware acceleration and this ensures that the screens stay active while streaming HBO Max on Discord.
Hardware acceleration also can make videos laggy. You should always check whether hardware acceleration is enabled or disabled in browser and Discord settings. This setting helps to avoid any issues while streaming.
You can also turn off hardware acceleration by turning it off in the advanced settings. Then go back into the user settings and add the browser you changed earlier as a game. Add Chrome as a game in your Activity Status.
Turning off this setting also helps avoid the infamous black screen and smooths out the streaming experience.

You can now see what you’re doing from your computer. You need to clear the cache of your web browsers and Discord. Make sure there are no internet connection issues before starting HBO Max. If everything goes well, your user time on Discord won’t be interrupted.
Hosting A ‘Party’
HBO Max doesn’t offer Watch Party functionality. You’d need to access an add-on to access this feature. A browser plugin is needed to watch the same HBO Max movies as others. You can also write into a chatbox while watching. This feature is called “Teleparty”. Hosting an HBO Max Party online is easy! Just follow these simple steps below:
HBO Max Account
Sign in to your HBO Max account.
Select your favorite movie.
Click on the Teleparty extension.

Next, enjoy watching together by clicking on the link (to “option to start a party”) to invite your friends to join you. A list of your friends will appear in the extension. When they join, you can watch movies together using the extension. You can also talk to each other while watching movies.
