How to Stream Audio on Android Device while keeping Video on Windows Device

Q: How to Stream Audio on Android Device while keeping Video on Windows Device

I would like to watch videos on my Windows laptop and have the audio play from my Android phone. Is this possible?

The reason I want to do this is my audio jack on my laptop seems to be broken. I'm often in the library or others places where headphones are essential.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: How to Stream Audio on Android Device while keeping Video on Windows Device

That would be very difficult.
Lets first find out if your if your Audio jack is broken.
Go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc Right click the devmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager are there any yellow flags? If so, these devices need drivers installed.
What is the make and model# of your laptop? Go to the manufacturers support/download drivers and type in your make and model# or service tag # and download the Chipset and Audio driver for your computer.

Hello,
I want to use my Dell Vostro 3558 laptop as a speaker to stream audio from my Android mobile (Xiaomi Redmi Note 4). On my earlier laptop i was able to connect with my mobile using Bluetooth and i would get the option to use the laptop to output audio from my mobile. But on this new laptop (Vostro 3558) i don't get the option to do that after connecting via Bluetooth. I am using Windows 7, 64 Bit OS.
One important thing i have found is that my mobile shows a yellow exclamation mark in the "Bluetooth Devices" list and there are also some "Bluetooth Peripheral Devices" under "Other Devices" in the Device Manager. Does it mean i need to install some drivers? If yes, which ones?
I have read something about Bluetooth A2DP functions and need it to be enabled on my laptop to stream sound from my android phone. How do i enable it.
Below are the screenshots of the device manager and bluetooth devices list. Please help me as soon as possible ......
Waiting for your replies.
Thanks,

Hi to all.

On my Dell OptiPlex 755 E6550 2.33, I've had intermittent issues with the headphone socket suddenly stopping working for quite some time,sometimes problem is auto detected and fixed, sometimes I download a driver or three to resolve. This time nothing is helping no matter what drivers I've tried. Have Win 7 Ultimate installed with just on-board sound. No sound or audio shows up in device manager? Are 755's fickle with on-board sound or just too many sound drivers installed? Any ideas please.

A:Dell OptiPlex 755 No Audio Output device and no Sound/Audio in Device Manager

There could be multiple hidden audio devices.
* Press windows key + R* Enter cmd, click OK* Type cd\ [press Enter]* Type set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 [press Enter]* Type devmgmt.msc [press Enter]* Once the Device Manager opens, open Sound and see if you have multiple grey out items. If yes, delete them, then restart the computer and retest

Hello,

We are producing a game that will ship with a USB microphone.

When the microphone is plugged in, Windows automatically changes the input AND OUTPUT default audio devices to the USB microphone. This is a problem obviously since the mic is not an output device which means there is now no sound from the computer. The user has to manually change the device by going into the control panel/audio settings, etc...

How can we solve this problem? Are there entries that can be added to the registry that will tell Windows to not do this when this particular device is installed? Is there another solution? It is ok if Windows does not change the input or the output device since we pick the device out in the game whether it is the default device or not.

Perhaps there is a way to force Windows to keep using the current default device when plugging in this particular device?

If anyone could help, that would be absolutely terrific. If this is something that will take a bit of time, please contact me and we can work out compensation. We need a fix asap!

Thank you for your time!!!

A:Keeping Windows from auto changing device when USB mic plugged in

Though there are many things I like about it, I have multiple issues with the Synaptics pointing device. 1. Most serious is that it forgets its configuration every time I shut down or restart the PC.  Reconfiguring it the way I want  every time is way too big of a hassle.  Is there a way to fix this?  If not, is it known where it keeps its configuration info?  I might be able to save its desired state and create a script to restore it automatically. 2. The last 2 issues stem from lack of physical mouse buttons.  With a mouse you can do a double click left mouse button drag to select consecutive words (as opposed to characters).  Since tap-down-drag for the touchpad means regular left mouse drag, I would have thought that tap-tap-down-drag would do it, but no.  Is there any way to get word-selection drag with the device? 3. Is there a reliable way to get right mouse drag to work.  It can sort of be done.  I have 2-finger click set for right mouse.  If I press down with 2 fingers and keep the switch closed while I drag, it works.  But this is very difficult to do.  The amount of force required to keep the switch closed makes it extremely difficult to slide the fingers (or one of them) for the drag.  It is so difficult to do reliably that I have given up trying.  I miss the function for mouse gestures in Firefox and Chrome which I use extensively on my desktop.  (I also have wireless S...

For six months or so, I've had a problem where my laptop's audio will stop working. The red "X" appears over the volume icon in the system tray and audio will not function whatsoever. Until now, rebooting has been 99% successful at restoring the audio until it eventually fails again. But in the last three days, my normal quick fix no longer does the trick. Apparently my laptop can no longer find the actual Conexant 20672 SmartAudio HD hardware on the motherboard. This is a T520 laptop running Win 7 with SP1. The T520 is roughly six years old, so I realize the hardware's age might be a factor. There are definitely other issues related to its age (general performance sluggishness, inability to wake up from sleep mode, backup no longer works correctly) and I will eventually have to replace the laptop. But in the meantime, solving this persistent audio issue will buy me at least a few more months, so it's worth fixing to me. I've found dozens of threads that suggest reinstalling the device drivers, which of course I have tried several times using the drivers here. The problem: After rebooting, the device manager still doesn't list any playback device ("No audio devices are installed") even with both "Show Disabled Devices" and "Show Disconnected Devices" checked. Similarly, when I run the 8aad14ww.exe device installer, it terminates with an error message ("Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the device for this driver").  Has the hardware itself ac...

The AUDIO FADE PROBLEM is an issue with this laptop and I am wondering if it is related to the above.
I have upgraded to the latest BIOS and drivers using the Dell Product Support pages.
Every other day I have to reinstall the Realtek Audio Device to get audio from streaming media.
The current Driver Version is 6.0.1.7908 from Realtek Semiconductor Corp. Date 12/08/2016 which is what it defaults to upon reinstall.
I suspect that for whatever reason Dell has not yet come up with a fix. Has it something to do with the fact that although I bought the laptop new, it had been upgraded from Windows 8 to 10? (A fact that I only discovered later)

I have tried downloading the current audio drivers for the computer but every time I try to install the driver, I get an error that says the device couldn't be found.

The first time i restarted the computer, after the driver installation failed, the audio came back and worked fine, until I had to restart the computer. Now I keep getting the same error and nothing i have found so far online has helped.

I have a 5-year-old Asus z70Va laptop. The hard drive is a PATA, and the system is running XP Home SP3. The problem I am about to describe started roughly a year ago, and has re-occurred at least 5-6 times.

I will be listening to audio (off the main hdd, not the DVD drive) when the problem starts -- usually streaming audio, though it has also happened twice when Outlook was playing a wav file as part of an Outlook rule I set up to flag emails from a particular sender. Interestingly, the error has *never* occurred when I have been playing a video file with audio.

What happens is that the music will sound as if it is getting "stuck" on one note or passage. It sounds distorted. It may pass quickly, but then will happen again ten-thirty minutes later, even if I stop and later restart the audio file (or stream). Once it recurs, I end up with this message in Event Viewer (System):

Event 9: The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort0, did not respond within the timeout period.

If I don't stop the audio immediately, the distorted and very discordant "stuck" audio continues, leading to a series of Event 9's before I can stop the player. But about every other time that happens, I *can't* stop the player; instead the computer freezes up (sometimes going to a BSOD), and when I restart I find that I now also have a series of bad block errors on a previously clean drive (usually 2 bad clusters).

So I end up replacing the drive, but then a month or two later the... Read more

A:Strictly Audio-Related Serious Event 9 Errors (The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort0...)

The audio is just a coincidence, not a symptom.

Bad sectors are a sign of a hardware issue with the HDD. Software won't cause bad sectors on a HDD. I'd suspect a bad HDD. If you have replaced the HDD multiple times, then there is an underlying hardware issue (ie: motherboard/controller issue or power).

Also, if you have to "whack" anything, there is a hardware issue. It's typically a sign of a loose of faulty connection. Otherwise "whacking" it wouldn't do anything.

I was wondering if you could give me some advice on a current computer issue.

So, I've got my TV hooked up to my PC as an extra monitor via HDMI. Up until last night I was able to get audio from my PC to be played/heard/whatever through the TV.

Earlier in the evening, I saw a bunch of Windows Updates needing to be installed, so I installed them. One update was for the Intel Graphics Card, wasn't able to be installed because of Windows Update Error 80070103 (which apparently appears when Windows tries to install something already installed). I didn't think much of it at the time and proceeded with the post-install restart (TV's HDMI audio was still working at this point).

Shortly after the restart (upon resuming watching the video from before), I noticed that the TV's HDMI audio was no longer playing. I checked the Audio Device manager to see if it somehow got deactivated and found that it was no longer listed as a possible playback device. I double-checked to make sure unactivated devices weren't being hidden from view (which they weren't).

I tried un-plugging the HDMI device, restarting, re-plugging - to no avail. I try replugging the HDMI cable into a different port on the back of the TV.

I then try to do a system restore to before the installed the updates but that didn't work (Windows said they it was unable to restore anything so no settings were changed).

My IDT audio works fine and my laptop's sound works fine, but when I hoop up my laptop to my TV through a HDMI cord I get my laptop's video output displayed on my TV but no sound from my laptop is output to my TV.

Hi @JS2045 The problem HD audio device you are seeing is the Intel HDMI audio device that needs a driver. I looked around for a W10 driver for the hardware ID you posted, and can't find one. You don't need that device unless you want/need audio through the display port. The only suggestion I can offer would be to try the W7 Intel graphics driver from your notebook's support and driver page, but install it this way...so that you just target the problem audio device... Download, but don't run this graphics driver... http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=4095873&swItemId=ob_127914_1&swEnvOid=4059 Download and install this free file utility.  64 bit is the second file listed. http://www.7-zip.org/ After you install 7-zip, right click on the graphics driver file you downloaded, and select 7-zip from the list of items. Have 7-Zip Extract to: and let it extract the driver to the folder name (sp64360). Go to the device manager and click on the problem Intel HD audio device needing the driver. Click on the driver tab.  Click on Update Driver. Select the Browse my computer for driver software option, and browse to the driver folder 7-Zip created. Make sure the Include Subfolders box is checked, and see if the driver installs that way. Then reboot. If you explore the driver folder 7-zip created, and open the DisplayAudio folder, you will find the setup informa...

Hey! First things first, I'm running an Aspire V3-772g laptop. After the recent Windows 10 update, I was having issues getting past the lock screen (took AGES to get to the point where I could input my password) and it had been a while, so I reformatted ('reset my PC' deleting all files) - this actually didn't solve my problem, so I used Rufus with a Windows 10 iso from Microsoft to delete all partitions and REALLY start fresh. Ever since, the laptop is running like a dream--in all but one respect. It seems like no matter WHAT I do, I CANNOT get my HDMI audio / TV to appear as an option in Playback Devices (yes, disabled devices is ticked). Looking in Device Manager, the High Definition Audio Device has an exclamation mark is throwing a code 10 - device unable to start. I've tried uninstalling it, tried installing all drivers from Intel's V3-772g page including chipset, updated my graphics driver / Realtek / Intel HD audio drivers... and yet, nothing. Ran /sfc, ran /chkdsk, nothing. I read something that led me to believe .NET framework might be part of the issue--and I did actually have quite a bit of difficulty getting 3.5 installed / functional, but I finally did...... and still, nothing!! I'm seriously losing my mind. I'm having to run my surround sound through an auxiliary cable into the laptop, which is just sacrilege and a fraction of the quality. If there is ANYTHING, ANYONE can suggest beyond the above, please do!!

Hey all!

As the thread title says, I need this device driver and I need it fast. As I don't have an active broadband connection anymore I am trying to connect to the Internet using my Android device as a modem (USB tethering). But I am curently stuck here. It seems I need a driver for this to work.

I am using Windows Vista 64-bit with SP2 and a HTC Desire as modem. When I connect the phone Windows is looking for drivers for a device named 'Android Phone'. It fails to find it and asks me what to do. I obviously can't let it search for it on the Internet. And I don't have a disc with drivers, I didn't get one.

I am using the Android phone to type this. As I have limited screen size and no mouse or keyboard, it's really hard for me to do a Google search to track down this driver issue. As far as I can tell, this should work out of box on Windows Vista. It seems that only Windows XP users are having this issue. Even on the Google Help it says that Windows XP users will need a special driver to enable USB tethering. But then again, why am I having this problem on Windows Vusta then?

I need to get back online fast, as I have bills to pay and things like that.

Thanks in advance!
 

A:Solved: Request: USB tethering device driver for 'Android Phone' on Windows Vista 64-

Hi again! I just wanna let you know that I have solved this little problem. As it turns out it does pay off reading the manual. Also, it is not completely true that Windows Vista comes with appropriate drivers pre-installed. You still need to install these, even on Windows Vista, and on Windows 7. But I still wish that things like these could just work out of the box. But for that reason alone, I may need to switch to a different operating system.

The solution was very simple. I did need to install the device drivers. But I didn't need to download and install them separately, they came pre-packed as part of the HTC Sync tool. And this thing comes cleverly stored on the MicroSD of the phone. So I just installed that and I was able to use the phone as a modem. It worked very good. The Internet connection did hang up on me once, but after a reboot of the phone it worked again and I was able to do my business effortlessly.

The thing is, I have terminated my old subscription, and I completely forgot about it and when they were supposed to shut down my connection. So it just happened, unexpectedly. But I have ordered a new Internet subscription with my new carrier and I am expecting it to be activated in couple of minutes.

Thanks anyway!

P.s. Just for the record, the HTC Sync tool is stored on the root of the memory card, the MicroSD card of the phone. It should say something like 'HTCSync_2.0.28.exe'. Just plug the phone to the computer in USB mass storage mode ... Read more

I am on son's Clevo laptop and they tell me they have not had sound for a very long time.

I check, download and install latest drivers from the Clevo website, but still no sound.

I have deleted all device drivers and allowed Windows to rediscover the drivers again - everything went well but found a PCI device that could not find drivers for so put the yellow Exclamation Mark - but still no Audio Device.

I checked the BIOS, there is no option to turn on/off the sound so I presume audio is turned on as everything is integrated, but still the Sounds and Audio Device Properties says that there are No Audio Devices. So either the device is faulty or there is some other way of being able to get the computer to recognise the Audio Devices.

If there is any suggestion(s) it would be greatly appreciated.

A:Onboard sound but 'No Audio Device' in device properties

Sometimes kids overdrive the audio chips until they overheat and burn out. If burned out, it will not detect.
Might be time to disable the onboard sound and install an external sound card and software.

I'm frustrated. <sigh>

Hopefully someone can give me some insight as to why all of the sudden my computer is telling me that my audio and media devices are gone.

My volume control is gone from the task-bar and everything in my system is telling me that I have no audio devices anymore. In 'Sounds & Audio Devices' (in the Control Panel) it tells me that I have no audio device (which used to be SB Live!). Under the Audio tab, SBLive! is gone from there now too and the only thing listed under "sound playback" is 'Modem #2 Line Playback'.

I've reinstalled SBLive! and this didn't fix anything.
In the Device Manager the following have a "!" next to them:

Microsoft Kernel Acoustic Echo Canceller
Microsoft Kernel Audio Splitter
The properties for both of these items list the following error:
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because there is a duplicate device already running in the system. (Code 42)

I also was told that it might help to delete the Upper and Lower filter settings in the following Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Needless to say... this didn't help either.

Anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get my sound working again?
Please let me know if you need me to post any additional information here!

Thanks!

editlease move this thread to Windows 7, guess it fits in better there

Hi everyone, I got a hard question (well, at least I believe it is).

When I plug my usb headset into my computer it automatically becomes the default/standard device - which is fine. When I play music, play games all the sound comes out of my headset.
But lets say I want the music to be played out of my speakers instead of my headset, is that possible using WMP11? Any other software I can use to accomplish this?

Another situation would be a friend watching a movie on my TV through my computer while I am gaming at the same time on my computer monitor. I am forced to plug out my headset and mute my game so the people watching a movie on my tv don't hear the ingame sound.

Is there any way to force a program (or at least WMP11) to play out of a different audio device than the one which ISN'T the default/standard playback device?

I just asked all of my colleagues (we are computer technicians), no-one knew ^^
 

A:Solved: Playback Audio through different device than the Default Device - Possible?

Hah, finally found out all by my self ^^

Windows Media Player 11 -> Tools -> Options -> Devices -> Speakers -> "Select the audio device."

As simple as that, amazing I haven't noticed that before - I've looked through the settings of WMP11 tons of times to no avail.

I have Windows XP Home Edition w/ Service Pack 2 on a Dell Dimension 2400. No audio devices detected. When I open Device Manager it is completely blank - no devices of any kind are shown. Same with Hardware. I haven't made any recent changes to anything having to do with audio, just a System Restore or two, and I don't know if the problem started before or after that.

Edit: Ok, I got the devices to show up by enabling Plug and Play. None of them have the yellow exclamation mark. Gonna try troubleshooting the audio devices...

Troubleshooting didn't work, updating drivers didn't work, Windows Help and Support was no help.

Normally using my laptop last night. When i opened it this morning. I have no sound and the deadly X red mark on my volume on my lower right screen is present.

It is obvious that this problem (no audio output device installed) is very common to many. Reading through hundreds of threads saying i just have to find "sound, video game controller" and re install it. The problem with mine is that i dont even have that kind of tab on my device manager? how come?

(By the way...when i open my Device manager. I can see under Other devices that i have 3 Base System Device that has a yellow exclamation marks on it) FYI

I tried looking for sound programs in my computer (through search, through dxdiag, etc.) and i cant even find a sound driver. Because of this, i go to Realtek and installed the newest high definition audio codecs for 64bit windows 7 which version is R2.71 update 2013/4/8. Feeling confident that i can now install it to my device manager...i tried doing it. To no avail, i cant install it...this is the procedure that i am doing...

1. Device manager
2. Add legacy hardware
3. Next>choose Install the hardware that i manually select from a list. Next
4. Choose Sound, video and game controllers
5. choose Realtek. Next, Next
6. THEN...after installing...it will say...."An error occurred during the installation of the device. The extended attributes are inconsistent" FINISH

A:No audio device output installed, no sound, video game controller...

The first approach, since it worked and then the next day didn't is to use the System Restore and restore the PC back to an available restore date that is Prior to having the problem. This fixes many problems, including your problem many times.

System Restore can be accessed from Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools. System Restore will not delete any user data or e-mails.

BTW, please fill in the "My System Specs" rather than try to list them on a post (along with much of it not needed).

I was rudely interrupted during a truly hilarious episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm to the cruel sound... of silence.

I know this is an old problem, I've searched high and low for a fix for hours, but none seem to pertain to my specific set of circumstances. Any help would be great.

Situation as follows; watching media on VLC, audio stops, laptop goes all crashy, I reboot, still no audio, red 'x' on volume icon, troubleshooting results in message reading "hardware changes might not have been detected".

I check device manager to see whats going on, there is no sound/video/game line visible. There are no unknown devices, exclamation marks, yellow triangles or anything. I hooked in my external soundcard to see if that was ok an sure enough it showed up fine. But still no sign of the onboard Realtek one that came installed.

I go to the Toshiba website to try and get updated audio drivers for my model laptop but apparently the only drivers available since 2009 are a bluetooth stack, a bios update, and a DVD update checker.

I've tried anything I could based on others' findings and successes but still no joy.

My laptop specs are

Toshiba Satellite U300-15p PSU30E
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

I apologize to be yet another repeater of this same issue, but I can't figure it out and would be grateful for some assistance.

Cheers!

A:No sound, video game controller in device manager. No audio full stop.

This is just a few things that I want you to try to determine what the issue might be.

Install the latest Realtek AC97 or HD Audio audio codec/driver software from Realtek.
Open up the Device Manager, right click, and press Scan for device changes.
If a device isn't shown or prompted to be installed, then Windows is not detecting a device at all and we may have a very big problem here.

Booting in to your BIOS, are you able to determine whether AC97 or HD Audio is turned on in your integrated devices (or similar) configuration?
If there is a known issue with the internal audio for your laptop, you may need to run the BIOS update, but only do this if it is listed to have solved all audio related issues in the update.

I have a Toshiba external hard drive which is externally powered and attached to the computer with a usb cable. I read on the web that the problem may be caused by Windows 7 conserving energy and shutting off external devices that are not in use.
I went to the control panel, opened Device Manager, opened the USB Root Hub and cleared the checkmark from Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. Clicked OK and did the same for the other USB hubs.

However, if I go back to the Device Manager a short time later all the boxes are checked again! How do I make this setting stick??

Try going to the device itself in Device Manager, and telling it to Allow the computer to turn it off.

Good morning friends, this question might fall under networking or mobile devices, but I think it's more a PC question.My goal is to forge a setup where I am able to conveniently stream media from my home media PC to my Android smartphone (Galaxy 3S). I am currently able to stream video to my phone while I'm at home on my Wi-Fi connection using the "Nearby Devices" option in the phone that appears to engage DLNA. When I do this, I get the option to stream from Windows Media Player's streaming system.My question then is how do I access my home PC information while mobile-browsing? I've got 4G service (big deal....) and would like the ability to access my home content while on the go. From my limited understanding of this goal, I see the option of using a VPN or something of that nature to create a secure connection through the computer's firewall so I can access the media server; is this going to work? Would this essentially be considered a "remote desktop" scenario? Asked another way: is a remote desktop connection a VPN?I'm looking for some suggestions on how to pull this off. If you have suggestions, like "use this VPN and open these ports and blah blah blah", I'd need some how-to because I've never tried to do this. I know a person can buy some programs that say they will take care of doing this, but how hard can it be? It's just a client-server relationship between the phone and the PC, right? Ope... Read more

A:Connecting Android Device to PC

One software that I have used for this is called Orb. You would install the Orb Caster software on your PC, add the media files to the Orb libraries, and then you can stream them from any internet-connected PC. They have two different Android Apps, a free one and a paid one ($9.95). I am not sure what the differences are between the two versions. It's probably at least worth taking a look at the free version to see if it fulfills your requirements.

ThanksClick to expand...

1) Security is not essential for anything - you can run Windows fine without any AV or security but you just need to be extremely careful.
2) Android Devices can get infected pretty easily thanks to the Google Play store letting in malicious applications - IOS doesn't have this issue.
3) If you are infected on your Android device then download stuff like:

- MalwareBytes
- Emsisoft or Kaspersky AV
They can be found within the Google Play Store!

Hello everyone!

I have a question: is it possible to "synchronize" Windows 8 / 8.1 (but also possibly Windows 7) with an Android smartphone?

Let me explain: I would like that if I set a reminder with your smartphone, I'll be back even when I log on to Windows, a bit 'as is the case with iOS + OSX.
I know that you can not synchronize your Google Calendar with Windows 8, if not connecting to the google account to hotmail, but there is another way that you know?

It would be nice to also sync the photos you snap with your cell phone with the gallery of Windows 8, using Google Drive, but I guess now I ask a bit 'too much, however, a synchronization in Apple style is that possible?

I have no problem to "do everything by hand," but I was wondering if there is a faster way to do the whole thing ....
