macOS 10.15.x (Catalina) and up

After the release of Catalina, macOS requires that explicit Screen Recording permission be given to the app in order for screen sharing to work.

To enable Screen Recording on macOS 10.15.x and up:

  1. On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Security & Privacy, then click Privacy.

  2. Select Screen Recording.

  3. Select the checkbox next to an app to allow it to record your screen.

Deselect the checkbox to turn off access for that app.

Windows 10

Installing EpocCam or another video camera driver (often a webcam will suffice) reliably fixes the screen sharing issue.
