Audio doesn't work on some apps

Audio works on Skype, VLC, Audacity, and MPlayer. Sound does not work at all in Totem. System sounds don't work. In Second Life, sound effects work, but voice chat does not. In Plane Shift, no audio works. I have followed all suggestions on https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-6593. This made Audio in work for Skype and Audacity, but not for Second Life, and not for Planshift or system sounds.

    Yes, that is a logical solution. But I failed to mention that I already did that several times. Didn't help.

Skype microphone does not work


You need to check your audio (sometimes called Sound on some systems) settings (under control panel on Windows or Settings on Mac).

Under input (or sometimes called sound recording), make sure the headset you are using is selected.

You might also try using the headset with another program to see if it will record your voice. (Audacity is free http://audacity.sourceforge.net/. You can download it and try recording on it.)

If it still doesn't work, here is a page on Skype that has a Microsoft tool you can try - https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA897/why-can-t-the-other-person-hear-me

Here is the link for Mac sound troubleshooting on Skype - https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA10885/why-can-t-my-friend-hear-me-on-skype-for-mac-os-x

Computer problem no volume


Try adjusting the volume controls. Look for the Sound or Audio properties in the Control Panel. Click Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound. Make sure the volume is turned up and not on mute.

You can also get to the audio properties by clicking on the megaphone located at the bottom right near the time.

Try downloading and installing the Audio Drivers from HP's website.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "HP Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Audio drivers.


Try using the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve many sound and audio issues.

Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

Dell Precison "headset sound" on the front don't works


Open the case and see if there is a cable from the sound port that is not plugged in.

Look in the bios or system setup and see if there are settings to turn the headset or front ports on. Reboot your computer and watch the screen to see which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. You have to hit that key when you see the message otherwise it won't work and you will have to reboot.

Check your Audio Properties to see if there are settings that need to be set for the headset. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound. You can also click on the megaphone at the bottom right near the time.

You can always try reinstalling the Audio Drivers.

First thing is what operating system is on the computer.
Second is what does device manager say about the recording interface?
Third in audio properties from the task bar icon, what is the default device for recording?

Skype


Audio Setup for Windows XP and Vista

1. Audio settings, in Windows and Skype

XP: Windows Control Panel / Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices / Sounds & Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Adjust Audio Properties"

Volume / Device Volume: Make sure “Mute” is NOT checked in this window.
Volume / Device Volume / Advanced: If there is no “Microphone” section in this window, go to Options / Properties and check “Microphone” in the “Playback” list. Then make sure “Mute” IS checked in this window

Audio / Sound Playback: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume: Make sure "Microphone" is selected and the volume slider is at the center or higher
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume / Advanced: If “Microphone Boost” or “20db Boost” is present, select it


Vista: Windows Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Sound / Manage Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Playback devices"

Playback: Your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Playback: Select your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Playback / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Playback / Properties / Levels: “Mute” is not on, volume slider in the middle

Recording: Your Microphone or on board sound/Sound card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Recording: Select your Microphone or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Recording / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Recording / Properties / Custom: If “Microphone Boost” is present, select it.
Recording / Properties / Levels: Microphone volume should be centre or higher
Recording / Properties / Levels: If there is a “Mute” button, it must not be on

Skype / Tools / Options / Audio Settings:

Microphone: Your headset/mic or USB device or Web cam mic, as you prefer
Speakers: Your headset, USB device or speakers, as you prefer
Ringing: VoIPVoice USB Phone or on board sound/Sound Card; also tick Ring PC speaker

Note: The audio devices you want to use MUST be present in these Skype device lists. If they are not, check the device connections and driver installations again.

2. Microphone and Speaker connections

Check if your mic (pink) and speaker (lime) jacks are in the proper sockets (it is easy to reverse them) and fully inserted (they sometimes stick only partially inserted)
If your microphone or headset has a “Mute” switch, make sure it is not on
If your speakers or headset has a volume control, make sure it is turned up
For test only you can use an earphone instead of microphone (really)! Just unplug the microphone, plug the earphone into the microphone jack, and talk into your earphones. (I know it sounds silly, but it might tell you if your microphone is defective)
A standard microphone plugged into Line In will NOT work.

3. Check audio in Windows.

XP: Start / All Programs / Accessories / Entertainment / Sound Recorder

Vista: Start [Orb] / All Programs / Accessories / Sound Recorder

Make a short recording with the microphone; you should see the level meters moving as you speak. On Windows XP, you can then play back what you recorded.

4. Once done, test with Skype Test Call (echo123).

Sound problem


If you can't see separate audio capture device in VLC and you aren't using separate cable from your device to your soundcard, then you can't get sound with VLC. If you use separate cable, make sure you have selected you soundcard as audio capture device.

Converter of audio cassettes to CDs


Get a computer with an audio input or soundcard. Like a Mac with garageband and a soundcard. connect both with a male 1/8" to male 1/8" cable. Press play on the tape deck, record on the computer. Once done, edit and trim the beginning and end. Import to itunes. Create a playlist. Burn to cd. Simple.
