  1. Comprehensive streaming audio problems


    I am having a consistent completely random streaming issue on my PC. A few things to get right out of the way:

    Yes I’ve restarted/shutdown devices/programs associated in every conceivable way. Sometimes helps, sometimes doesn’t, never permanent fix (obviously)

    I can not pinpoint when it started happening. Maybe for 2 months? Maybe a little less?

    The issue: I first noticed this issue with streaming “podcasts” on I heart radio. I would press play, the symbol would turn from play sign to pause. Then nothing would happen. I could leave it like that for five minutes. Nothing. I could still browse the Internet with no issues, and my service is exceptional.

    Then the issue moved from podcasts to YouTube. I hit play. Nothing. Spinny wheel but nothing loads. I could hover my mouse over the playback bar and literally watch the whole video by gently moving the course along (via the preview mini video) but it just wouldn’t play.

    Finally, the weirdest part, my Amazon music app has started doing this same thing. Not through a browser, but the physical program itself. I hit play, infinite spinny loading thing, play sign turns to pause sign, no sound and the timer never moves from 0:00. This is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever encountered.

    I tried switching from chrome to Firefox, same intermittent issue. Firefox to edge. Same.

    Since it is random I can trouble shoot it and eventually things start working again, sometimes not.

    Any ideas? Windows 10 up to date. Home built PC from like 3 years ago. Can give specific details for things on request.

    Problem recording streaming audio in Windows 10

    I am having a problem recording streaming audio in Windows 10 on one computer. I am able to record streaming audio on another computer using Voice Recorder (I used to use Sound Recorder before Windows 10), but not on this one. Both have Realtek sound card.
    Any suggestions (every time I try to set up Voice Recorder on this computer it seems to want to set up an external microphone).
