Hello and thanks for an answer!
Well, it really looks like some kind of a sampling rate issue.
The problem is:
I do already use the same VIA sound driver (exactly the same package and
version) as I do under XP, were I don't have this problem at all (on the
same computer, same hardware, same software settings!!).
I don't see any place where I could change sample rates for voice over
ip programs like "teamspeak", "speakfreely". It doesn't matter what kind
of compression method I chose, I get always the same bad effect: a much
too deep and too slow, low pitched voice.
I think, it must be in the windows audio codecs somewhere, but as I
said, I already uninstalled them completely (in "safe mode") and only
gradually reinstalled them. The problem was there from the beginning
again! I am out of ideas.
I don't want to use XP, because there are different issues, in my case.
So I would really like to use windows 2000 for voip, too.
I also installed, for a test, an older version of my sound driver. Same
As I found, in the meantime, there is only one voip program which seems
to give me a normal voice: "teamsound". But this one appears to be
different, because even under XP I had to install an additional gsm
codec which wasn't there when I had the program installed.
All the other voip programs, however, seem to user other codecs, and
none of them works for me under windows 2000. Nevertheless, everything
audio related (except voip) works perfectly otherwise, even under
To the experts:
What could I do to trace the problem?
Are people here who use windows 2000 and voip? What codecs do you have
