Sound issues with discord.

Q: Sound issues with discord.

I use the application discord to communicate with friends and for some reason my sound from my computer like youtube videos plays through discord. For whatever reason however this was not the case yesterday when i was at my families house. I had been there for months and had no problems but after coming back to my apartment the sounds start going through and i cant think of why. I am using the same computer and same setup only with an aditional monitor. any help would be much appreciated thank you.

My problem is as follows.

I want to play Tabletop audio which is a soundboard like website.
The issue is that it needs to be real-time action when the I press the button it needs to respond.
The audio should be fed to Discord which is an application like skype.
Also, I don't want feedback when I speak because, with some virtual cables and CheVolume, I managed to feed the audio from the browser to Discord, but when I speak there is an echo.
I used two accounts, one for me as a speaker and one as a bot sort of thing to play the tabletop audio sounds.

We are playing DnD so its important for it to be real-time and tabletop audio is really great for the soundboard.

I have a Blue Yeti Microphone, and it's quality only shows through within recording programs such as Audacity. How come my microphone quality is not the same standard when I talk on Skype, Discord and TeamSpeak? I have the settings modified for these programs so that it is at optimal settings, but the general quality of the microphone isn't heard. Although there is a difference between the quality of the Blue Yeti and my previous microphones, it sounds completely different from recording programs AND how it should sound as a high end microphone.
 

A:Sound Quality On Skype/Discord (Voice chat systems)

Quality relies on the amount of data throughput. Most chat programs place a priority on speed (ie: low latency) as opposed to quality, so the amount of data used for the audio stream are reduced.

As you noted, the quality of the mic is noticeable over your previous mic. So the mic quality isn't wasted.

Over the past few months I've periodically been hounded to try either Kik or Discord as a secondary means of communication between my online friends. However no offense to them intended, but I just don't trust anyone enough to use anything I thought was similar to Skype or social media. After finally researching them though I actually can't find anything wrong with. Apparently Discord is DDOS proof & Kik doesn't expose any personally identifiable information either, claiming to be a very secure messaging app. Although I know malicious attachments embedded within pics, videos or links could possibly be sent with either, here are my questions about that & more.
 
1: Is Discord or Kik really DDOS proof & how exactly do they go about hiding your IP when Skype still doesn't?
 
2: Is there a setting within Discord or Kik to automatically block images, videos, links or any other specified attachment yet still use the text & voice chat?
 
3: Are there any other security & privacy vulnerabilities with either app that I should be aware of before using?

A:Kik VS Discord Or Neither?

Discord has pretty poor stability and its application is literally a Chromium frame of the web client with a few extra features. Plus it isn't 100% end-to-end encrypted - servers are also just centralised, not actual servers that you install to your computer, which brings confusion. I really dislike Discord as a platform, it will disappear in some years just like every other proprietary trendy IM/VoIP service has done so. I have to use it because everyone I know is way too stubborn to try IRC or XMPP. Cannot say anything for Kik.

Here is my issue: I use the desktop app for Discord primarily. (Yes, I have Win 10, which was not a download but came pre-installed on my laptop.) I haven't had any issues with this until the 28th of April. My comp restarted &, upon trying to load Discord, it said it was installing update 1 of 1. Then it spits out the following error (error is posted below). I tried restarting my comp, but it didn't work. So I uninstalled Discord. But when I went to re-install it, it only got to a certain point & then spit out the same error. So I tried to look online for a solution. I found a video which I followed to delete the localapp folder & stop all the Discords through task manager. I did everything the video said to do except restart Discord because I couldn't. I couldn't even reinstall it. One site told me to pause my antivirus, which is keeping it from updating it said, but I don't know how to do that. So a friend of mine got on TeamViewer with me & tried to fix it. He ended up having to ask his tech support friend & they went through a series of steps to wipe Discord out completely & reinstall it. It worked great!... Until today. My comp decided to restart sometime today. When I loaded up Discord it said it was installing update 1 of 1. I thought 'Oh, no, not again,' but it went through & then said it was installing more updates (9 in total this time, not counting the 1). That went through but then said installing upda... Read more

Heyyo!

So i have recently been having a load of problems with audio in my discord. I am using a behringer soundcard, that i am both using for audio in and audio out.

So the wierd thing with this is that when i have restarted my PC, i go in to discord (and my audio settings) and see audio input from the "Line in" from the behringer soundcard. So, now discord is using the audio device and also blocks all the other sound out. I can't for say listen to music on soundcloud or watch youtube. It has basically taken control over the soundcard completely, and it is first until i go into the task manager and kill discord completely and restart say youtube, that i get audio output from my computer.

And the same with the opposite. When i start up without discord automatically starting, audio is coming out from my pc, but when i then start discord and try to check if audio is coming in from my mic and such, nothing is there. Now discord does not have access to the device.

Honestly, there is many repeating occasions in this so i apologize if i have put it any wrong, but i hope you people understand me here!

Worth notating is that i produce music with Fruity Loops 20, in which i have selected "BEHRINGER USB AUDIO" as my main audio device. I can then in the software use the two audio inputs it offers to record say a guitar or a microphone. Same as how i have used my mic to record, i use it in discord.

The main reason for that soundcard being bought was for the ... Read more

Hello,

Today my computer blue screened 6 times today. I've had no blue screens since I built my PC more than a year ago (not a single one). But recently its been causing major issues.

Some of the blue screens occurred whilst i had the League of Legends Client, Discord and Chrome open. Some occurred whilst the only thing i had open were Discord and Google Chrome (only tab was Twitch.tv).

All of my drivers are updated: Sound Drivers, Network Drivers, Graphics Drivers, System Drivers, Mouse and Keyboard. (Checked in Device Manager)

I ran a registry check and cleaned all registry errors.
I ran an anti-virus scan. (computer is completely clean.)
I ran an anti-malware scan. (computer is completely clean.)
I then uninstalled malware-bytes.
I ran a memory test (No Errors)
I ran a "sfc /scannow" in cmd.exe. (No integrity violations)

After all of those, it still blue screened.

Good morning everyone,
 
I am having issues with sound on the M82 or 3306G1U as stated on the subject. The sound works perfectly fine for everything with the exception of Istation, www.istation.com. I did notice that this is only affecting 2 out of the 20 plus computers we have, so its a bit hard to say its just the model. I have tried updating the drivers to the latest version, and as well verified that it was not just the input device for front and back jacks being wonky. Oddly enough the support agent I worked with, used TeamViewer and was able to hear the application just fine, however when I used speakers it was very, very faint but I could also hear it. 
 
Is there any general help anyone can provide me to pinpoint the problem further?

Hey all,

This started last night, the only thing that I did that was out of the ordinary was ran Avast's thourough scan fully, but even after that my sound worked, so it didnt delete the driver to my knowlege, but when I do a dxdiag and look at my audio, it doesn't exist, there is no sound card installed, and allI use is my DFI Lan Party UT RDX200 CF-DR mother boards on board sound. I tried installing the driver again fom DFI and to no success, now when I went to install the drive again, I got an error saying that this device isnt approved by Windows, could windows be preventing my audio card from working?

I'm not sure if this is all part of the same problem but there are multiple things going on. On my laptop ( its an HP Pavilion DV6, with an intel core i3 CPU @ 2.20ghz, & 64 but operating system ) The only way i can get any sound to play is if I watch videos in my firefox browser. No sound will play when i use Chrome (which I prefer) or Itunes, or windows media player. The problem with watching videos in firefox is that there is about a 20 second delay before the video will play, and an error comes up to stop the plug in or continue. If you close out of that box the video will play but you will get the same delay every time it is paused and started again. Browsing in Chrome and playing videos from that browser there is absolutely no lag, its lightening fast, but you will not get any sound. Other simple programs ( Like solitaire) have the same lag, each card you click takes about 20 seconds for the move to actually take place. I've tried messing with my sound drivers to correct the audio issues but I am not sure if it is an audio issue, a flash player issue, or a combination. Any input?

1)I'm having issues with my speakers not cutting off when I connect my headphones to them. The speakers are the Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 PC set, and I have tried two different sets of headphones, plus the sound is full of static and buzzing. I've also tried re-installing/updating my onboard sound driver, but that doesn't help. I do notice that when I connect my headphones to the speakers that the sound emitted from the speaker will lower by 25% but will not fully cut off. I'm also having issues with the front panel headphone jack on my computer case (Antec 1200 V3). The sound coming out of the headphones when connected to the front panel is filled with static and buzzing. I have tried re-grounding the front panel ground connector, but that didn't change anything. However, if I connect the headphones directly to the back of the computer, the sound works fine.

2)When watching Youtube videos each video has a hard time buffering. My speed is at 10 Mbps and it registers at that speed when I do a speedtest, plus all other websites work fine, it's just Youtube that I'm having a problem with. I've cleared the cache and tried using a different browser, but nothing helps.

I have also ran Malwarebytes AntiMalware, SUPERAntiSpyware, neither yielded any harmful results.

Ok,Here is the issue with this sound card. First off it's a nice Diamond (great cards) Xtreme Sound 5.1. The problem I have with it is it's affected by certain videos. Youtube it plays fine.....until you go into Full Screen mode, then it's garbled...you can't make it out what anyone is saying during play back in F\S mode. Another problem I have is Encoding videos do the exact same thing!

Last night I downloaded a freeware program that was on my old box called "Panzera mp4 to avi converter 1.3" it's a great program. My Camera uses the Mp4 format and I am not too fond of quicktime just to run that format. The reason I am trying to convert them is to kill the file size and make "nolstalgia" DvD for the family. the Mp4 plays fine however,no sound problems in the original clip.

Update:This isn't really an update but I found out something weird. My video playback with Wmv,Mpeg,Avi,Asf ETC. is always garbled.

I installed DirectX9.0c, I have Divx and Xvid codecs. My sound drivers are up to date. I unhooked the onboard sound and uninstalled sound max after buying the Diamond. A friend told me I should disable the onboard sound entirely but I can't find the option in the bios. My mother board is a "Asus A8x socket 939" board. Any helps please? I am desperate!

I've seen this happen with the games I play recently. For example, in games like Battlefield 1942 and Black and White 2, some places showed "straight lines" from objects. At the top of the 3d static object in question, the straight lines go from there to the sky. There seems to be no end to that unless I get really close to that object.

As for the sound problem, I'm hearing static occur at random occasions. Any way to fix these?

Hello, I have a strange problem with my sound settings that has just started since I reinstalled Windows.

Basically Im a dj & I use my pc to stream shows on the internet.
My decks are connected to my Vestax mixer which is connected to the line-in on my soundcard.
Connected to the line-out is my hifi.

When I do my shows I have jingles to play etc which I use Media player for. So while Im streaming (with shoutcast) I open a jingle in Mediaplayer & that goes out over the stream aswell as the audio coming from my decks. through line-in

Now since my reinstallation the problem Im having is I cant get the audio from Media Player to go out at the same time as my music from my decks.

Ive fiddled with the audio properties in Windows etc (which Ive never had to do before) and I cant get it working how it was before :
I dont understand whats chnaged since my reinstall.
Any ideas anyone?

If its any help I have an Realteck AC 97 onboard soundcard.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Hello everybody !

Decided to create this topic in order to discuss sound issues related to Windows 7. In my case, I decided to install W7 in my Sony Vaio VGN-S360, despite all warnings related to Vaio only supporting its original XP Home Edition. Everything is running smooth and the OS works fine and fast. I have already downloaded and installed most drivers from Sony support webpage. However, there is one thing that won't work the way it should. I have my Fn key working fine for brightness control and other stuff. But as for sound, it won't control the overall sound. You see the scale going up and down, but that doesn't affect the master volume (soundmax). Does anybody have any idea how to turn the Fn key into a master sound control again ? Thanks !

A:sound issues

You'll have to update at least 2 pieces of hardware to do this (and hope that they work together).
Update the keyboard driver that runs the Fn keys - but get it from the hardware manufacturer's website - NOT the Sony website.
Do the same thing with the sound card driver.

Run the installers in Compatibility mode for Vista and Run as administrator.

I'm not sure that I understand you completely. You bought this without any Windows applications, does this mean that you don't have a Windows operating system?

If a new hdd was installed and a operating system was installed, were the drivers for the Toshiba installed? This could be an issue with the audio drivers.

Hey guys...
A couple days ago I bought the retail DVD version of Far Cry 2 and ran home to try it out. I installed the game with no hiccups and started it up. It showed the ESRB online rating message fine, then went off to show the Ubisoft logo. This is where it started to go wrong. The sound of them drums became extremely choppy and in some parts, just a growl of static.
I thought this would be normal as it was the first time i ran the game, so i didn't fret yet. I got to the main menu, went over to the options and set everything on "medium", no anti-aliasing and a resolution of 1280x1024, confident that my nVidia 7950 GT could run it fine. I picked my character and started a new game.
I then faced a loading screen, and again, when the music came on, it became a series of hisses, pauses and static and it started lagging REALLY badly. I had to wait a full 8 minutes for the game to load itself up.
The intro of where you sit in the car while the guy drives you around was hell. Nonstop lag all around, giving me about 0-2fps for the whole ride. The sound of the engine and the guy's voice was also messed up. The lag stopped when the car became stationary, making me think that it might have been my computer's inability to load up the environment as fast as I walked/drove through it.

Depends on the audio chipset used. The option you are wanting is referred to as "Stereo Mix" or "What You Hear". Look in the Audio settings for a similar option. Note that it's not supported by all chipsets or drivers.

Or why can I have audio when I plug headphones in but not sound through my speakers?Thank you for the help in advance!

A:Sound Issues

Check your Realtek software (should be a blue icon like a crab in your taskbar by the clock, or even a red speaker icon in some cases) sometimes the default jack assignment settings are incorrect or re-assigned (i dont have a realtek here at work so unfortunatley cannot walk you through the settings). Also the ATI HD3400 most likely has an onboard sound card if its a HDMI version, that could have interfered with your setup. Open your control panel/Sounds and Audio Devices, click the Audio tab at the top and ensure the correct device that you are pluging your TV into is the Default Device in the Sound Playback section at the top.

Hope this helps

Problem: I bought a set of 5.1 speakers on wednesday to upgrade from my previous 2.1 set. I set up the speakers and played a couple of 5.1 music tracks i found from googling around to check i was getting sound from all my speakers, i am.

However when running the speaker test in Valve's Source engine i'm getting all the sounds coming from all the speakers if at varying volumes. Even when i mute all the speakers apart from say back left i can hear "front left, centre, front right..." and so on all coming from my rear left speaker.

EDIT: In VLC i get the full surround effect sounds only coming from their correct speakers when running a Dolby Digital Speaker test video thing, however in MPC it only uses's front left, front right and centre.


Any ideas how to solve this short of buying a better sound card?

We run sound through a laptop to a Bose T1 Tone Match/speaker tower system for a variety of events with my husband's entertainment business. We have had issues with the sound going out. The song will continue to play and countdown and will eventually be heard again through the Bose system...sometimes the sound will play through the computer's speaker for a second. We have had a diagnostic report run on the computer through a tech company and they see nothing wrong. We are at a loss as to what is going on. We've contacted Bose and they sent a new Tone Match system and the same thing happened again. It's never on the same song or a certain time into a performance/event. It's done it on Windows Media Player and Winamp. It has also done it on tracks that my husband sings to as well as songs he plays at a "deejaying" event. We've also used a variety of different cables and it's happened every time. I'm thinking maybe the USB and speaker jack may be messed up. Wouldn't a diagnostic report show that?

Hi,

I recently reformatted my computer. I have done this before and am having the same problem as last time. I can only hear system sounds. Last time I think I only installed the driver from the manufacturer (realtek high def), but I cannot remember. I tried installing the driver from the manufacturer with no luck. It currently says the only sound device is my bluetooth. I also have a yellow question mark next to my sm bus controller and have been unable to update that driver without an error. Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated! Here is a belarc report of my system:

I figured I'd post this here as i've heard rumours that my problem may be due to incompatibility between my sound card and Vista.
I recently bought a new Compaq Presario CQ60 after my last laptop's screen was destroyed. Since day 1 of using it, the sound card doesn't seem to be working properly, often spewing out distorted sound no matter what media i'm playing and what I play it through (headphones, pc speakers and the built-in Altec Lansing speakers all do the same thing). One moment the sound will be fine and the next it drops down to a barely audible, muffled sound before correcting itself again within a minute or two.
This has been happening for 3 months since i bought the computer, everything else works fine but I have noticed a pattern in the sound issues. Whenever i'm playing World of Warcraft, the sound only craps out like this when i'm standing idle and things are quiet. As soon as I begin combat, the sound sorts itself out and plays at full volume again.
Same deal with music playing, when the music is soft and doesnt seem to be using many sound channels, it's muffled and barely audible. As soon as the music becomes loud and picks up, the sound corrects itself again.
I don't know a whole lot about my exact system, but the sound card is an integrated HDAudio sound card, i'm running Vista Home Premium and all other functions on the laptop perform beautifully.
Is this a compatibility issue between HDAudio and Vista that... Read more

When I  insert the headphone jack into the left side of the device, I am getting sound from both the headphones and the desktop. This is a recent issue that started within the past week. I have had this computer for two years. How do I adjust settings so that sound only comes through headphones when they are inserted?

About two weeks ago I built a computer. It was put together perfectly with no problems to deal with up until now. My sound has been giving me trouble recently. I think I've got it narrowed down to drivers, but I'm having trouble actually installing them. But anyways, heres the story.

If I have any program that outputs sound (i.e. WMP, online radio, video game, etc) and start up Ventrilo (online voice chat program) two things happen. The first is that ventrilo tells me my sound input device is in use by another program (hard to believe when nothing I ever have up requires a mic except ventrilo) and then I get a windows bubble popup saying my USB bandwidth has been exceeded. I go into the bandwidth to see what's hogging it all and I see a USB composite device eating 61% of the bandwidth. I have 2 USB devices connected to my computer, those two being my logitech USB headset and a keyboard/mouse receiver. Those 2 are recognized under their respective names, however the device using 61% is simply called "PnP device". In a hopeless attempt to figure out what it was, I disconnected all USB devices and plugged in a different keyboard, yet the PnP device was still showing up as 61%. So I went and tried to download another driver for my ASUS M2N-SLI mobo (soundmax to be specific) and when running the .exe for that I get an error message saying an HDA driver is missing and is needed to install soundmax. From that point on I gave up in attempts to fix it as I ke... Read more

Well, i recently, (four hours ago) updated to windows 7 just for kicks. Well, it's running smoothly, and all nice and neat and such. But, I got an issue with my sound.

From my previous operating system, XP the onboard sound had an "updated" driver, due to it being an older motherboard, and Asus K8v-X SE

WELL! I found a driver for my audio, and I got it to install, after several frustrating minutes of a message going, "This driver is incompatible with this operating system" or something along those lines. Well, got sound going, but from one speaker. It's not an issue of my speakers, nor the cord I'm using, because I've plugged up other devices to it to make sure that sound came from both sides. The issue i believe lies in the driver...

If anyone could help me find a driver that would work with Windows 7 for an Asus K8V-x SE motherboard for onboard audio.. THat'd be awesome. right now I'm downloading about 300mb from an FTP site asus runs, of various audio drivers... Just to see if I can get one to work. no luck at all so far. Thanks in advance.

Brand new computer and sound had been working great for about a week, then when i update the drivers on my video card, the left side sound gives me a kind of scratching, static sound, i know its not the speaker because i switched it and got it on the right one. I've tried total uninstalling all the ati/audio drivers and reinstalling one by one, but after installing audio i get the dreaded sound. hopefully its just some configuration issues, i dont want to either buy a sound card and/or reinstall windows (grr)

oh yeah i also reset the bios (took out battery and put it back in) its not that

Specs:
MSI K8N Neo 2 (intergrated audio)
AMD 64 3000+ (stock)
AIW 9600XT
Creative Inspire T-3000 Speakers

I just started having this same kind of problem. When I play music there is lots of static, like you would get on a radio when the speakers are dying.. I switched speakers from a different computer and I still have the same problem. Though they work perfectly on the other computer.

My sound is Realtek AC'97.

Any suggestions?

Thank You

My Windows? 7 Professional, 64bit, English had been playing sounds from everything perfectly last night. When I went to shut down it started installing security updates. I left it to its work and went to bed. . When I turned it on my computer this morning, It behaved normal, except that now applications sounds don't seem to work. The system sounds work fine (start up sounds and speaker tests), but if I try and watch something on youtube.com or play a game, those sounds are not working.

I thought it might be because of the security updates from last night, so I did a system restore taking it back to before those updates were installed. When it came back up, it still had the same issue.

* Rebooted the computer multiple times
* I checked in Device Manager under Sounds and the driver is reported as being the newest driver
* It doesn't appear to be muted

I'm not sure where else to check.

Not sure what to do from here. The sound is from an Integrated 5.1 Channel Audio

A:Sound issues

youtube and many games use flash or shockwave, so I would suspect that is where the problem is, not with your sound card since other sounds work OK.
