audio issues with "speakers audio"
Hi fellow streamers,

I've always had to monkey around with the sound to get the audience to hear me and hear my group on a Skype call. I noticed I lost the ability hear any audio on my side if I have all the settings working in which the audience can hear both me and the skype call.

I recently upgraded to Mountain Lion (so I can't switch back to an older version of Procaster)

When I have all the audio settings working so I can hear the skype call the speakers audio drops off in the audio mixer.
When I change the output in the skype audio prefs to audioredirector the skype call can be heard, the procaster audio mixer option for speakers audio lights up but I lose all sound to my headphones.

I've tried various headsets. my main has an audio and speaker jacks the connect to a USB dongle so I can try many options. i used to have to unplug the headset jack and plug that into the headset option on the computer. i've tried an old isight for an optional mic input. i've tried ipod headphones.

the computer:
osx 10.8.2
processor: 2.8 quad core intel xeon
16gb ram

i've deleted and reisntalled the app many times.

anyone help is appreciated.

Please try the following:

- In the System folder, navigate to the Library folder, then Extensions folder

- Move the Procaster application to the trash
- Clean out the trash bin

- Install Procaster from:

If you continue to encounter the issue, please let me know.

mountain lion doesn't seem to store anything in the extensions folder so there's nothing to delete. maybe this was for a previous version is OSX.

We've confirmed the process is the same on Mountain Lion as it is on older Mac OSes. If you feel comfortable with advanced use of Terminal we can provide a more complex way of removing these extensions if you'd like.

I've been having the same problem on Mountain Lion 10.8.2 recently,
Procaster was working perfectly for a few days till one day it just stopped.
I've tried two different USB audio interfaces now and the speaker audio only produces a quiet hiss on the stream, my logitech webcam gets it's audio picked up perfectly.

I did everything in ernielive's second post only to have it do the same thing once i reinstalled.

Any help guys?

Could you attach a screen shot of your Mac OS input device list?

Sure thing,

There's a logmeindriver, procaster, My keyboards microphone port and my webcam.

Here's the output as well:

I use the internal sound from my Logitech keyboard for my Hackintosh,
It worked perfectly for several days before it started only putting out that hiss noise.
I have my audio interface that I record music with that I tried to get working only to get the same hiss, as well as two Airplay devices on my network, one of them not visible in the output screenshot.

Have you tried selecting ProcasterAudioredirector as the input when you try to record speakers audio?

At first it didn't seem to work but, after removing all the audio sources in the mixer and adding back speaker's audio, I finally have audio routing properly again. Thanks for your patience and time!
