Does discord to video? My son uses it for audio during gaming.
It asked me to create a password - so I did.
I have tried the one I created and my system password.
Neither work.
Ive looked at  tutorials about uninstalling it but its not completely
clear what if anything it would break in doing so.

If I still didnt have a lot of MS based clients - I wouldnt be using
skype either.
