Hello,

 

Microsoft Teams does not play (output) or record (input) audio, when trying Teams call on a remote PC (connected with Windows Remote Desktop client).

  • Sony WH-1000XM2 headphones connected to the local PC
  • Remote Desktop audio settings in the local PC:Aaapo_0-1604554186717.png
  • Audio test on the remote PC with https://online-voice-recorder.com/ -> recording and playback OK (everything I recorded with the headphones can be heard via the headphones)
  • Audio test on the remote PC with Teams: with the only available settings for Audio devices (Custom Setup), Speaker (Remote Audio), Microphone (Remote Audio) -> Make a test call
    • Bell ringing, but when connection to Teams Echo established, then no audio can be heard
    • If I hang up the call, I can hear the Teams Echo voice for a while, say sub-second
 

Microsoft Teams version 1.3.00.28779 (64-bit).

 

Any fix proposals would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Felipe,

 

Thanks for the response.

I checked the list of supported remote desktop RDP file settings: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/remote/remote-desktop-services/clients/rdp-files

 

My settings:

 

screen mode id:i:2
use multimon:i:1
desktopwidth:i:2560
desktopheight:i:1440
session bpp:i:15
winposstr:s:0,1,3485,763,4367,1849

promptcredentialonce:i:0
gatewaybrokeringtype:i:0
use redirection server name:i:0
rdgiskdcproxy:i:0
kdcproxyname:s:
drivestoredirect:s:

 

Relevant settings both in my list and in the supported RDP file settings are audiocapturemode (1: Enable audio capture from the local device and redirection to an audio application in the remote session), and audiomode (0: Play sounds on the local computer (Play on this computer)). But as said, other applications on the remote PC can successfully use my local microphone, and redirect also audio output back to my local PC. It's just Teams that does not work.

 

Have I missed some RDP setting in the list, though? Thanks for the help! :)
