I have a problem whenever I'm desktop streaming, or recording, on any software. OBS, discord (screen sharing ) ...etc
the glitch is showing my desktop wallpaper for some reason or just a black color ...

In the OpenGL section of the nVidia X Server Settings, you may have to disable "Allow flipping". It's worth a shot. Simple Screen Recorder warns the user that this may happen and offers to disable it permanently or per session.
