It seems the software is basically showing you your own screen. The screenshot is similar to what you see when you open a screen sharing/recording software. Take, for example, OBS studio:

This is an infinite screen loop. This is expected. Nothing to worry about.

What exactly is the purpose of this? I downloaded that piece of software last week but uninstalled it because of that, what I thought was an, issue. It simply complicated things for me. One screen is enough.

When you share content of YOUR screen on YOUR screen you generate an infinite loop, there is no purpose in that, it is just how it works. Same thing if you use a camera that records the monitor that shows what the camera sees.

OBS is for sharing the screen content. It doesn't care about where you share it.

I use to use Microsoft Expression Screen Capture or something along those lines and didn't encounter infinite loops.

I don't understand how that complicates things. The infinite loop indicates that the software is able to capture your screen. For example, in OBS Studio if you don't see that infinite screen, it simply means that the software is not working.

Maybe that software is programmed not to share your screen on your screen. Zoom, too, doesn't do that. Google Meet shows such a screen when it asks permission for sharing your screen:

At least I know now that the software was operating correctly!

But have you directed the output to be displayed on your screen, or have you saved it to the file or used it just to send the stream outside?

If the output is displayed on the screen and there is no loop it means software does some tricks to not allow the effect. Actually I would consider it not working, as the picture displayed is - at some point - NOT what you see on the screen.

Yes. And it worked just fine.

OK.

But then at some level it lied - it didn't show the screen at the moment of the transmission, but the screen as it looked before the transmission, as if it didn't change.
