TurboMeeting's "Use Mic & Speakers" VoIP is designed to transfer voice from attendees' microphones. It does not transfer sound generated by applications such as Skype or
a movie player. In order to play the sound on your computer for
your attendees, follow these tips:
On Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, choose the menu item: Tools |
Start to share my computer sound with attendees.
Some XP PCs have a “Stereo Mix” choice. In XP’s Control Panel, open “Sounds and Audio Devices”, click the “Audio” tab, under “Sound recording” click the “Volume…” button. In this “Recording Control” dialog, under “Stereo Mix” click the “Select” check box. Now, the sound playing on your computer will be broadcast to your attendees. Insure that the Speaker volume level is un-muted and loud enough on your computer. To use your Microphone again, open the “Recording Control” dialog and under “Mic Volume” click the “Select” check box.
Alternatively, run a 3.5mm Audio Male to Male Cable from your computer’s headphone jack to the same computer’s microphone jack. In TurboMeeting choose “Use Mic & Speakers”, then click the “Setup” link. In Audio Settings, pull down the Speaker and Microphone choices and select the choices that match with your headphone and microphone jacks. To use your microphone and speakers again, unplug the 3.5mm Audio Male to Male Cable; plug in a headset, or you might be able to automatically start using your built-in microphone and speakers.
