Hi, my friend! All streaming services use DRM Protection for video content, which detects and prevents screen recording or screenshotting activity. Crunchyroll is a streaming service, and that's why you always get black-screen images.

If you want to avoid the black screen issue when you record Crunchyroll or take screenshots on Crunchyroll, you can try two methods. One is to use a professional screen capture tool, and the other is to disable the browser's hardware acceleration and take screenshots of Crunchyroll in your web browser. Both methods will help you complete the task:

Method 1. Use a professional screen capture tool

The easiest way is to use an excellent screen capture tool, and the one that I recommend best is EaseUS RecExperts. This tool has a special recording mode called Enahnce mode, which can bypass the DRM protection on almost all streaming services. That means you can effortlessly use it to screenshot or screen record Crunchyroll without a black screen. In addition to Crunchyroll, you can even use this tool to screenshot Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Netflix, Disney Plus, etc.

  • Download and install EaseUS RecExperts, and open it on your device.
  • Choose the Enhanced Mode on the left panel and play the video you want to screenshot.
  • Click REC to start recording, and hit the camera icon to take a snapshot.

Method 2. Disable hardware acceleration in the browser

Another way is to turn off your browser's hardware acceleration. Here, I take Chrome as an example:

  • Open Chrome and click More Option > Settings.
  • Choose System and disable the option "Use graphics acceleration when available".
  • Finally, restart Google Chrome.

I hope you will be satisfied with my answers!
