Tutorial: My volume in TeamSpeak is low when running X application


Recommended Posts

This really applies for any application but this what I hear all the time. "My TeamSpeak volume becomes really low with I'm in game BLAH" or "My TeamSpeak volume doesn't work at all in application BLAH".

First, check your volume in TeamSpeak itself: Settings --> Options --> Playback --> Voice Volume Adjustment

Basically, you have a setting in Windows to allow certain application to prioritize control over your speakers and microphone and to detect voice communication and adapt.

In Windows 7/Windows 8:
Control Panel --> Hardware --> Sound

  • Right-click your default playback device--> Properties --> Advanced and uncheck both Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device and Give exclusive mode applications priority


  • Click the communications tab and ensure the Do nothing radio button is marked
