The Twitch 4000 error can occur when you try to read any stream on the platform, and usually occurs along with the message “Media resource format is not supported”. This error can be frustrating because it occurs every few seconds or minutes in a stream. In this guide, you will find a list of solutions that will help you fix this problem.


Twitch can display the 4000 error due to a number of issues, including "a struggle" to share your computer's resources, primarily audio, with another stream. This will cause a shake to fail and will certainly return an error stating that the resource format is not supported.

Considering the cause of the error, here is a list of solutions that will help you fix this problem so that you can continue to enjoy streaming content on Twitch.

Select default audio drivers.

It is possible that the correct audio drivers are not chosen for the output device you are using. Even though the output device may work correctly in some applications, it may not work in others. In this way, it is recommended to choose the correct audio drivers in the Windows settings. For that:

  1. Right-click on the sound icon in the lower right corner.
  2. Select the “Sounds” option.
  3. Click on the “Read” tag.
  4. Identify the correct audio drivers for your output device and right click on them.
  5. Select the Set Default option to select it as the default driver.


Reinstalling audio and graphics drivers

for audio

  • Enter Win + R (the Windows logo key and the R key) on your keyboard at the same time to enter the Run field.
  • Type devmgmt.msc in the Run field and click OK to open Device Manager.
  • Expand the Sound, video and game controller category.
  • Right-click on your audio device and click Uninstall Device (in some cases, it can basically be Uninstall). In the example below, the audio device is Realtek High Definition Audio.
  • In the Confirm Uninstall dialog box, select Remove driver for this device, and then click Uninstall.
  • Restart your computer. The audio will reinstall automatically.

This procedure must be performed with local administrator rights and antivirus software must be fully disabled during the operation.

  • In Windows, click the Start button.
  • In the search box, type the name:


  • Tap Access to display Device Manager.
  • Under Display adapter, right-click the video card template and choose Properties from the context menu.
  • On the Drivers tab, click Uninstall, select the check box to delete the driver, and then click OK.
  • When the uninstall procedure is complete, reboot the system and cancel any attempt by Windows to automatically reinstall the driver.
  • Make sure Windows uses the VGA driver for the video card. If you are using a different driver, repeat steps 1 through 6 to delete any other existing drivers until the VGA driver is the one you are using.
  • Install the recommended driver you downloaded.
  • Once the installation is complete, restart your computer.


That should be enough. If the flashing still indicates the “Unsupported Media” error, please contact support. If this has resolved your issue, please take a look at our Twitch guides or ask any other questions or suggestions in the comments section below.
