And unless things have changed, I still have to see the first official reply from Valve stating, too bad you're not using Ubuntu. Click to find out more about the Steam Link App. Video and audio data is sent from your computer to the Steam Link, while your controller input is sent back in real time. Steam Link will only capture audio from the audio interface marked as the Default Device. Anyone else have an audio issue? In-Home Streaming Audio Support Steam supports streaming stereo 2 channel audio from all streaming host operating systems to all streaming clients including the Steam Link. Do you have a microphone or something similar attached to your computer? Hoping this is a simple adjustment but unclear where you're doing this. The first one is the major one, for some people who upgraded from an older release - membership in pulse-access is needed for system-mode PulseAudio.
In the windows sound option the steam apllication sound was set to zero so I just put it up and then I had sound on steam link. Hope this post helps others as well!! Maybe some of you can try this, too. Originally posted by :I found another solution to this, at least it worked for me. I think I've solved the riddle, finally. Vibrations can cause it to be stuck in this state. However, there are ways to minimize the latency and.
The Steam Launcher maintains a library of the games you have licensed and gives you fast access to them. They should be by default. . But with the Steam Link, we have a situation where both signals are being compromised, because they are all tied to the same line of communication. One bypasses the launcher entirely and one tweaks the underlying applications so that the launcher works properly.
Check the volume control in the taskbar, and right click it. I also have Guild Wars installed to a different wine prefix and it doesn't have any sound problems by itself or with other sources like YouTube. I've set Tv to default sound and all the drivers are up to date. Here's a couple of examples: - I don't believe that this is necessarily driver related, as it's affecting users across a range of hardware. Thanks to others who had trod this path before, I was able to identify two workarounds. I hadn't considered doing that and gave it a shot. You can play with the other options here to see how they affect your setup.
Not getting stuck with the Steam controller is definitely a plus. Especially for more casual games, you might not even notice the difference. Then drop back down to desktop user and try running steam from command line. Steam Clients running on Windows can also stream quadraphonic 4 channel and 5. Edit: added link to changelog entry. This explains the difference in more detail. Support for quadraphonic and 5.
You can then launch that game from the Steam Link. Ended up with a log filled with d3d errors, but no errors relating to sound as far as I could see. Open up Steam Library in front of you and find your problematic game on the list. Now go to exit to desktop. Exiting Steam solves this problem and I can hear sound again. My Steam games lack sound, but the problem isn't localized to just Steam though it seems to be the crux of the problem.
Troubleshooting for the first generation development kit can be found. Connect the base stations with the sync cable. I had problems with super low volume when my selected audio device was my Kraken Chroma Headset. I think this may be a problem with Kubuntu. I didn't encounter any sound problems on my system outside of Steam since then.
This leaves me to believe this is a problem with my sound system but I do not know what could cause it. I realize I am communicating through the literary medium, but can you see the grimace on my face? It does support non-Steam games, but you have to add them to your Steam library first. And i noticed even without the steam link, When i enter big picture mode on my Desktop i don't get audio either. Any help would be appreciated. Now we need to unmute it with alsa mixer. The orange tipped cables from the Headset should be connected to the orange ports on the Link Box. A good example of this was tapping right on Mercenary Kings, and occasionally seeing my character keep running right for a second or two.
Do note that since I'm using Kubuntu Karmic, it does not have PulseAudio installed by default. You can also connect wireless devices to your Steam Link via Bluetooth later. Be sure to press the headphones in firmly. My best guess is that the switch to full desktop capturing for that short moment is what breaks it. I really hope valve either fixes the underlying cause, or at least allows for specification of the audio interface in configuration. While plugged in, orange indicates charging.
