    Trying to screen share Amnesia through Skype

    I'm running the newest version of Gnome, and I have been trying to screen share Amnesia through skype with my bf. It works for the first few game publisher screens and creating a game, but then screen share cuts out.

    I am trying to find out if this is a bug in skype, Amnesia, or just ubuntu.

    Anyone?

    My guess is OpenGL. (The underlying framework that Amnesia runs on)

    To expiate, I think that screen sharing is meant for mostly static imagery, (desktop, document applications, and such like), and it's choking on the game.

    Is this problem also present when you are running amnesia in windowed mode?

    Amnesia runs fine when I'm not trying to screen share it.

    I was just curious because my room mate can screen share KH games run through patches on his macbook, but I can't seem to do it on Gnome.
