    Is there any way to mute the microphone automatically when system audio is playing?


    Hi everyone, hoping you can help me with this situation. I am using a screen recorder extension which records the entire screen with microphone and system audio.When playing audio files or videos, it records it cleanly BUT my microphone picks up the sound from the speakers. The only way right now is to unplug the microphone or switch it off when the video/audio track is playing - then switching it back on manually.Is there anyway to have this automatically carried out? Thank you!

    :)

    muting microphone

    i am still having the same problem with the microphone reverting to a muted state after restart.
    the thing is there are 2 microphone drivers (for some reason),when i unmute the muted mic driver i can make a sound and i see that it is recognized but not by the driver i just unmuted.

    microphone mutes itself

    When i go into properties the mike is muted. When I unmute it works for less than a minute then mutes again. The only suggestion I have found is set as default device which does not solve problem. I have also read it is a virus but I cannot solve with malware or virus scans. It first became a problem just a few weeks ago while skyping. Never had a problem with mike until then.

    Troubleshooter finds the microphone muted and fixes, Within a minute the microphone mutes itself again.
