Hello everyone,
I saw a forum post about VAC on this forum and hoped someone could help me with my issue.

Im currently using Screen Sharing on Skype to share a window with a friend, however I would also like for him to also be able to hear the sound. I've fiddled with this for some hours now and I've been able to make it so that he can hear both me and the application sound, however I can not hear the application sound, but only him. If I then make it so that I can hear the application sound, he can not hear me.

It must be possible to:
- Have him hear both me and application sound
- Have me hear both him and application sound
- Both be able to speak to each other with mic

Any suggestions?

It's hard to say without knowing what kind of soundcard and microphone you are using. If you're using a USB headset it will be different than using a mixer. Ideally, to send audio through Skype you should use 2 soundcards and a mixer or a mixer with USB output.

Soundcard 1 out to mixer (for your app data)
Mic into your mixer
Mixer output into soundcard 2 or out through USB, to Skype

You can get a cheap USB soundcard for like $6 on Ebay. A USB mixer for like $50-$100 depending on what you want to spend.



With VAC and USB mic/headset.

USB microphone to line 1
USB speakers to line 2
App Data to Line 3

Line 1 to Line 3
Line 3 to microphone input of Skype
Line 2 to speaker output of Skype


So you're combining your audio signal from your app and from your microphone, sending it out through Skype and you're also heading your app data and his voice on your speakers. But this is dodgy at best.

oh. To cut out all of that BS, you can just use http://teamviewer.com
It will allow you to talk back and forth, share desktop, remotely control each others computers and also share audio app data.
