Issues with Ventrilo Audio.
Hey yall, first post. Thanks in advance for the help.

So I downloaded the Windows 10 April update (The big one). Now I am having an issue where I can't get Ventrilo audio to come through my headset. I can talk to people, but I can only hear them if I set my audio to come out of my speakers. General set up for me is all audio through my speakers with the sole exception of Ventrilo, which makes it easier to hear my friends when we are gaming.

I thought at first the headset might have gone bad, but I have extensively tested it using windows audio checks as well as playing videos on *******. I can get any and all audio to run just fine, except vent, the one I actually want.

TLDR- Cant hear vent audio through headset, cant figure out why. My mic is working just fine, friends can hear me. pls halp.

Provider is Typefrag. Version is 3.0.6. I had done all the standard checks, Headset is set to default communication device in windows. In vent settings it is also the output/input device. I have juggled the settings through every logical combination and no luck.

Thanks again for any help you can provide.

at the bottom of the window, is the 'mute snd' box checked? if yes, then uncheck

when others are talking do you see their icons in green or yellow? if yellow then have a server admin check your permissions to receive broadcasts.

in vent setup/voice-binds-speech tabs, try setting the output device to the actual device name for your headset

I neglected to mention a couple other options to try:

No Sound when using a 5.1/7.1 Sound System

Is your system sound configured for 5.1 or 7.1?

(Windows 10 Control-Panel / Sound / Playback tab / select speaker device / ‘Configure’ button / Audio Channel configuration)
or from vent setup, clik the playback button

If yes then:
Goto Vent setup/voice-binds-speech tabs / SFX button / Directional / Add “Front Left & Right 5.1 (or 7.1)”

Disabling non-essential Audio Devices - Vista/Windows-7/8/10

Windows Control-Panel > Sound > Playback & Recording tabs > rt-click in the window and select "Show Disabled Devices" and "Show Disconnected Devices" > rt-click on all unused devices and select "disable"


also, what version of vent are you running? 3 or 4

what codec/format is the server using? while connected to the server, goto setup to get the codec/format (lower left area)

Having sound issues when using 7.1 Sound Systems. Disabling non-essential Audio Devices didn't do the trick, unfortunately. Is there anything else I can try?

did you try this:

Goto Vent setup/voice-binds-speech tabs / SFX button / Directional / Add “Front Left & Right 5.1 (or 7.1)”
