I've just added screen sharing support to Pidgin, based on ximagesrc:

More importantly, it's completely hosed for sharing either the full

On Wayland, you should use the API provided by xdg-desktop-portal:
org.freedesktop.portal.ScreenCast. It is not directly related to X11
though, and should work the same no matter what windowing system you
