@BeardedBear - Have you tried reinstalling your video drivers? Does it state in the BSOD specifically what is crashing? Does it only happen in CS:GO?
If you have not done so already, and if it happens again, can you send in a ticket with logs so we can investigate this?
To send logs you just right-click on the Plays.tv taskbar icon, select Help > Feedback, fill out the info and make sure the checkbox is selected. Post back here to let me know you have sent it.
@EgoistCat - Making a ticket would be good to figure this out. Additionally, when it does Blue Screen, make sure to look up which file is crashing or what error code is displaying specifically. Thanks!
Just wondering if anyone has found a fix yet. I have reinstalled plays.tv, updated all video drivers and am at the most recent release of the BIOS for my motherboard. The problem is the same, first game crash, then bluescreen on relaunch (unless I close the plays.tv process in taskmgr)
Im too having this issue, Keep getting this error after a black screen Application plays_encoder_ has been blocked from accessing Graphics hardware.
@raichu1903 - I'd recommend making a ticket with logs if you have not already. Make sure to post here once you have done that so I can find it easier. Thanks!
@chronovarience - I recommend doing the same as above. We definitely want to look into BSOD issues.
Additionally, for both of you, if you can find what exactly is crashing during the BSOD screen, that would be helpful.
Ok, I had(have?) this same issue running Win10, MS-7577 790FX, 8 GB, HD7X(x2), with DualGraphics/Crossfire disabled. I run multiple displays with secondary coms(vent) and an open wiki page; alt-tabbing can be a pain in the butt. For me the fix/Band-Aid was just biting the bullet and running with a single display and Dual Graphics enabled if I'm going to run the client; haven't had a crash yet.
I have R7 370 and same problem.Please fix this problem.
Why is this STILL a problem? I've had major issues causing games (SMITE, Xcom EU and Heroes Of The Storm, maybe a few others, haven't noticed yet) to become unplayable and crash resulting in a BSOD about 20-40 seconds after the black screen ends with the message "AMD Display driver has stopped working and has recovered." in the bottom right of my screen. I recently reinstalled the client after seeing this thread only to have my games start dying nearly instantaneously on launch, even faster than before.
^ Just an update. It seems the same issue that I described previously has started occurring again. I've had to disable the Plays.TV client as of now since I haven't found a fix.

I got in touch with a Plays.TV staff member on Reddit and brought up the issue: https://www.reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensive/comments/3jhx7q/playstv_easily_make_csgo_highlight_reels_match/cutu6i1
I've reinstalled the client and haven't experienced any crashes or bluescreens since.
I tried reinstalling Plays.TV but I still get the same crashes and BSOD (see my post above).
