    Sound is muted between dialogues in videos/streams


    Hello,

    I have pretty weird and annoying issue. When I'm watching a movie/stream, my sound is muting itself between dialogues - it only happens in those situations. Someone says something in a movie, MUTE, when the person resumes, it suddenly unmutes. Longer the dialogue is, more mutes I have. It mutes entire sound and it's so annoying. It only happens on my PC, I have HDMI plugged from PC to my TV and from TV I have Optical cable to my soundbar. I have tried to disable Windows enchancements, reinstalling audio/video drivers, setting everything for stereo, changing to 16-bit CD quality. I have no idea how to fix it.

    Streaming video, sound adjust automatically

    Hi Dannowa12,

    Corrupted or outdated drivers may be the possible reason why the sound adjusted automatically. To efficiently assist you, kindly answer the following questions below:

    • Have you made any recent changes prior to this issue?
    • Which build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    • Does this happen only when streaming videos?

    In the meantime, I suggest you follow these methods to troubleshoot your laptop:

    Method 1: Run Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter

    Follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X and select Control Panel.
    • Change View by from Category to Small Icons/Large Icons.
    • Click on Troubleshooting.
    • Select Hardware and Devices and follow the on-screen instructions.

  3. muted app has sound

    To be more specific. App is Bitcoin Miner. Ad appears as a video in app window. App still shows muted symbol, but sound is playing. There is a back button that stops the video and reverts app to normal state. Ad doesn't affect apps work. My security is
    far beyond suggested, so there is no malware nor any other unwanted program. Ad is part of the app, but sound somehow circumvents the muting of the app. Mixer shows only that app and system sounds, no other apps appear when sound occur.

  4. Sound is muted between dialogues in videos/streams

    Sound mutes for 15 second when notification pops up.

    If I am watching a video on VLC or streaming music on Spotify or any number of things involving sound if I get a notification from Facebook in Chrome or something else it mutes all sounds for about 15 seconds. I tried doing the communications tab and selecting
    "Do Nothing" but it still happens. I have had to turn off sounds on all the applications I run just so I can watch a video or stream without it randomly muting. Is there any way to fix that?

    I'm running a Sound Blaster Z sound card connected to Logitech Z906's with an optical cable.
