The Twitch 4000 error can occur when you try to read any stream on the platform, and it usually occurs next to the message “Media resource format not supported”. This error can be frustrating because it occurs every few seconds or minutes in a flow. In this guide, you will find a list of solutions to help you solve this problem.
Twitch can display error 4000 due to a number of problems, including “a struggle” to share your computer’s resources, mainly audio, with another stream. This will cause a jolt that will fail and possibly indicate an error indicating that the resource format is not supported.
With the cause of the error in mind, here is a list of solutions that will help you solve this problem so you can continue to enjoy streaming content on Twitch.
Select the default audio drivers.
The correct audio drivers may not be selected for the output device you are using. Although the output device may work properly in some applications, it may not work in others. Therefore, it is recommended to select the correct audio drivers in the Windows settings. For that:
- Right-click on the sound icon in the lower right corner.
- Select the “Sounds” option.
- Click on the “Reading” label.
- Identify the correct audio drivers for your output device and right-click on them.
- Select the Define Default option to select it as the default driver.
Reinstalling audio and graphics drivers
- Enter Win+R (the Windows logo key and the R key) on your keyboard at the same time to access the Run field.
- Type devmgmt.msc in the Run field and click OK to open the Device Manager.
- Expand the category Sound, video and gamecontroller controller.
- Right-click on the audio device and click Uninstall Device (in some cases, it may simply be Uninstall). In the following example, 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 be reinstalled automatically.
This operation must be performed with local administrator rights and the antivirus software must be completely disabled during the operation.
- On Windows, click the Start button.
- In the Search box, type the name:
- Press Enter to display the Device Manager.
- Under Display Adapter, right-click on the video card template and choose Properties from the context menu.
- In the Drivers tab, click Uninstall, select the check box to remove the driver, and then click OK.
- When the uninstallation process is complete, restart the system and cancel any attempt to automatically reinstall the driver by Windows.
- Make sure that Windows uses the VGA driver for the video card. If you are using a different driver, repeat steps 1 to 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 blinking still indicates the error “Media not supported”, please contact the support team. If this has solved your problem, take a look at our Twitch guides or ask other questions or suggestions in the comments section below.
