  1. Audio playback devices


    Hello, Im trying to configure my audio in OBS to get two separate tracks, one for game sound, one for everything else. Heres the issue: I need two separate playback devices that both output audio. In the videos I watched, they had Realtek(R) Audio, which I have and use, and then another device that was just their headset name. I dont have this second option for playback. Im using earbuds to the 3.5mm audio jack, so would there be any way to create a second playback device that I could send audio to? Also, why dont I have a second device like everybody else?

    Problem with audio devices

    Hi Marcello,

    I appreciate you for trying some steps in order to get the issue resolved.

    If you're connecting to an audio device using USB or HDMI, you might need to set that device as the default.

    Open Start, enter Sound, select it from the list of results, and then, on the
    Playback tab, select a device, then Set Default.

    I would also suggest you to turn off Audio enhancements.


    • Go to Start, enter Sound, and select Sound Control Panel
      from the list of results.

    • On the Playback tab, right-click (or tap and hold) the
      Default Device and select Properties.

    • On the Enhancements tab, select the Disable all enhancements
      check box and try to play your audio device.

    • If that doesn't work, select Cancel and, on the Playback
      tab, select another default device (if you have one), select the Disable all enhancements check box, and try to play audio again. Do this for each default device.
    Please revert if you face any issues with Audio.

    Thank you.

  3. Re-enable audio device

    Hi,

    I would be happy to assist you.

    Before we proceed with troubleshooting, I would need little information on the issue.

    • Are using speakers / head phones to listen to audio?
    If you have disabled the audio device, then you might not see it under the list of playback devices. I would suggest you to follow these steps to make sure you see the disabled devices:


      • Open
        Control panel
        .

      • Click Hardware and Sound and then Click on
        Sounds.

      • Under Playback tab, right click on the empty area and make sure
        “Show Disabled Devices” has a check mark on it. If headphones/Speakers are disabled, it will now show up in the list.

      • Right click on the device and
        Enable it. Click OK.
    If the issue still persists, try enabling speakers automatically using steps below.


    • Go to Settings> Click on themes> Advance sound settings> right click on the speakers or the audio device youo have connected > click on
      Configure device.

    • Test the sound level you want, click Next.

    • And configure the audio devices.

    Hope this helps you. Do reply if you need further assistance on Windows 10.

    Thank you.
