Description of the issue: Brave does not show up in Windows 10 sound mixer, advanced sound settings, and the audio that should be played does not come through my headphones
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Launch Brave
- Go to any site with audio or video (with audio) content
- Check sound mixer, settings, headphones - no audio anywhere, and Brave isn’t listed
Expected result: Audio showing up in system’s settings, and following that - heard by the user
Brave Version( check
About Brave): Version 1.11.97 Chromium: 84.0.4147.89 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I love the browser and used it for everything but for the last month or so I’ve been completely unable to get any audio at all from Brave. Every now and then I’ve tried to read up on the issue and see what might be a problem but nothing that
I have found several topics about having audio issues with Brave and went through and tried all the suggestions that I could find.
As such, I included a screenshot taken which shows:
The multimedia section of inetcpl.cpl has audio enabled (one suggestion)
The advanced audio settings for Win10 which doesn’t show Brave (ALL active audio sources should be listed regardless of device) - I have tried hitting “Reset” and it didn’t do anything to help.
The top section of the Brave browser showing that A) the current tab of Netflix has active audio (symbol on the tab), B) there are no issues with the site being muted which would be shown in the address bar
Also, I have tried turning Hardware Acceleration off, it didn’t help, tried turning it on again - still didn’t help. Tried turning it off again (since I saw another article recommending that) and it’s still not working.
I have also uninstalled Brave, restarted the PC, installed Brave, and restarted the PC. Full clean reboots.
If there are any further suggestions for things to try, please let me know. Thank you!
