Teams live keeps muting my PowerPoint with embedded videos

Occasional Contributor

Hi, I've just done a 90 minute Jammer live via Teams PowerPoint presentation with 3 videos in it, i was personally muted and we had guest speakers. I'm finding the presentation is auto muting, even though i've shared it with sound..

1: Any idea how to stop it muting it's self?

2: How do i unmute without looking a buffoon? I can't summon the box in the presentation window on purpose..

so when you are muted how come it will not mute you, this is why i assume it respected the option and as soon as you mute your self, it does mute the presentation... give it a try without muting yourself.
On test runs it allowed me to share computer sound while being muted.

I wonder if i disable the microphone in the system i can stay muted while not having to mute?
