voice chat under win2k: voice pitch wrong, deep voice (2)

Post by Sven Hol » Wed, 10 Sep 2003 22:59:41


Hello!

Tried google and forums in vain for this problem...

Why is it that each and every voice over ip program (voice chat,
internet telephony), such as netmeeting, speakfreely, teamspeak etc.,
doesn't work for me right under windows 2000?

"Doesn't work" means:
My own voice is heard by others as very, very slow, deep, roaring like a
lion, while I hear the others all right.

The same voice speed/pitch phenomenon happens when I just do a local
loopback test!

The problem only is under windows 2000, while at the same computer
windows xp and Linux don't have this problem.

Anyone else having had this problem under windows 2000? Could you solve
it?

I already had uninstalled all my sound drivers, audio codecs etc and
reinstalled again, but the problem with my voice speed (pitch) didn't go
away!


Please, someone answer to this article, hopefully with a way
to find a solution.


Many thanks
Sven

I wonder if there`s something funny going on with the sample rate under
win2k - there may be a way to check / alter it, but i`m not sure where

This is very likely a sample rate issue, I guess. But I don't see a way
to find out for sure or to change a windows setting.

The settings of the voice chat software (in contrast to any operating
system settings) are identical, under windows 2000 and XP, no difference
in the settings.

I wonder whether other people have this same trouble under win2k, too.
If so, please tell me, if not, please tell me as well. Actually, I can't
imagine, everybody has these problems with voice chat under windows
2000.


More ideas are very welcome
