How To Disable Onboard Mic While Streaming?

Hey everyone!

This is driving me nuts. I am trying to stream the audio of my band from a youtube video and I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to disable the built-in mcrophone on my laptop while doing it. I tried everything I can think of, and even temporarily disabled the microphone driver in Control Panel (Windows 8.1) but this causes Audacity to spit out an error message when I hit the record button. I am trying to record in Stereo, streaming only, no microphone because the room isn’t that quiet. lol

I tried it in Audacity, but lowering the mic input in the toolbar also seems to remove the streaming as well, Any ideas what to do here?

Thanks! :slight_smile:

What exactly are you trying to do?

If you are trying to record the audio from YouTube, see: Tutorial - Recording Computer Playback on Windows - Audacity Manual .

If you want to stream audio across the internet to other computers, Audacity does not do that. Use VLC: .
