Windows 7 Volume issue or Teamspeak issue


I was fighting an issue where, when using TeamSpeak and playing a game, when someone spoke, the game volume would plummet and stay low.

What the Fix was NOT: Right Click on Speaker in Task Bar, Choose Playback settings, then Choose the Communications Tab.. then picking the "Do Nothing" radial button.

What the Fix WAS: In TeamSpeak - go to the settings drop down, then plugins uncheck "Volume Control" plugin.

The plugin does this: "Reduce volume of other applications when someone is speaking in your channel. On systems other than Windows 7 or newer only Winamp's volume is affected."

I hope this helps you!
