Casting desktop mutes my laptop and there is no sound on tv, unmuting the laptop then plays sound on both, but i can't make it so that sound on plays on TV. Casting only tab works fine.

Was using same OS with my older laptop. Had no issues.

Hey there Sunguard,

I apologize about the late response, thank you for being patient! Were you able to fix that audio issue? If not, I'd be happy to help out, let me just ask you some questions about what's happening:

  • When did this issue start happening?
  • Does this same issue happen on Google Canary?
  • Have you tried changing the default audio device?
  • What troubleshooting steps have you already tried?

I look forward to your response, and if you have any other questions or concerns for me, please let me know!

Best regards,
Jeran

I have a similar issue that only just started this week where I used to be able to listen to audio through pc connected headphones while watching cast tab on tv. Now cast tab will only play audio and video through tv but cast desktop will let me listen through headphones and watch on tv

I tried a bunch of chrome://flags suggestions from way back most of which dont exist anymore. The issue started when I switched to windows 10. I dont see any additional device to change as default. Previously when I casted desktop to chromecast the sound on the computer got muted. Now either they both are muted or arent.
