I am using OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) in Ubuntu 16.04.

While Selecting Screen Capture(XSHM) in sources I am able to capture the screen.

While Selecting Window Capture(Xcomposite) in sources it is capturing only mouse pointer with a black background.

How to resolve this issue. ?

If you double click Window Capture(Xcomposite) below screen will appear.

In this page if you scroll down you will get Use alpha-less texture format(Mesa workaround) option you have to check that box.

Solved using this post.
