Paltalk and Windows 8-Sound Issue

I have two PC’s, one with Windows 7-Realtek Audio and a new one with Windows 8-64 bit-IDT Audio.

Paltalk Scene 10.2 Build 474 works fine on Windows 7. However, ever since I installed it on my Win 8 machine, I can’t hear any sound in the chat rooms. I know that there’s sound coming in cuz the speaker icon in the chat room window indicates it; however, Windows 8 or IDT doesn’t seem to recognize it–perhaps the sound is going thru a different channel! The only sound I’m able to hear is that of stream audio rooms like 977 80’s music.

All my drivers are up to date; I also tried uninstalling/installing Paltalk Scene in various compatibility modes and running it as administrator. Nothing helped the sound issue. I did go to the help room, and all they could say is that there are sound server problems! I know it’s not a sound server problem cuz like I said, the speaker icon indicated that sound was being received, and everyone else in the chat room could hear sound!

Any idea on what the problem may be?

Thanks.

  1. Hi Mate, Thanks for reporting the problem in here…

    The sound issues are very new and you are not the only one having the same problem! I had the same problems on my end and for days we tried to contact the help rooms ourselves.. And we never use the Help Rooms when we know we can fix the issues ourselves. But this time it was different.. Its def not your windows. Its a Paltalk Issue and server issue. The words about about the Sound Problems in many many rooms are true! We visited Paltalk Help room a few days ago for the 2nd time to hear about new updates.. And again we were told the same..

    The sound problems has been going in for a few weeks now… You can read about the new Sound Problem Topic made by our forum advisor Popeye11100 on China-Cheats! He is an old Paltalk RED HAT and today working in Tech Rooms.

    Here is the topic Popeye made about the same issue a few weeks ago: http://china-cheats.com/showthread.php?t=5300

    If you say you can hear the sound in the 80’s room, then its def not your Windows, and just like what happend to us …Else all we can do is to wait… Good Luck Mate.

    Ps, I have one more suggestion for you, Try a Portable Version of our Latest Released of Paltalk. We have some good Feedback on it! Its worth a try and released a few weeks ago….

  2. Thank you so much for your quick reply. I guess for now I’ll just keep using Paltalk Express on my Win 8 machine.

    Btw, the Beta 474 link results in “File Move or Deleted” message.

    Thanks again and Merry Christmas To All at I’mFiles.
