Music starts playing through speakers when I try to make a call.

I like to listen to background music when I make a call, but now that I've got this new computer, whatever music is playing when I try to make a call starts playing through the speakers instead of my headphones. Is there an audio setting that makes my music keep playing through my headphones? I have been through the Skype audio settings and call settings and through the sound settings on my computer, but I can't find anything relating to that. Can anybody help? One more thing. I have the IQ of a rock when it comes to computers.. So if you could make any answers as simple as possible, that would be great. :happy:

- try to enable stereo mix/input PC option.

 

- or Control Panel >> Hardware and Sounds >> Sounds.  Then click the Communications tab and select Do Nothing.  Click Save.

Re: Music starts playing through speakers when I try to make a call.

this also did not work for me. I've been trying to fix this for the last two days and it is annoying to not be able to listen to music while on skype

Re: Music starts playing through speakers when I try to make a call.

Assuming you're running Windows 7 or Vista, go to Control Panel > Sound > Communication and set it to "do nothing."

 

See if that does what you want to do.

Try going into audio playback devices, and disable Communcations and Headphones

Re: Music starts playing through speakers when I try to make a call.

I did as someone above suggested "do nothing" under communication and it didn't work, but when I did "mute all sounds" it worked - So that is an option too. I couldn't figure out how the other solution worked.
