Moderated Re: Playing music when in Zoom meeting

Hi Kevin,


Have you activated screen sharing?


If you open an audio file in the app you want to use, then go to your Zoom meeting window and press alt + S to begin screen sharing.

Press tab twice and cursor right to the app you will be playing the audio through.

Next tab to share computer sounds and tap the spacebar to select it.

Now tab to the share button and press enter.

You will probably find that your participants will also be hearing Jaws.

To get around this, I set my onboard Realtek speakers as the default Windows soundcard.

I plugged a set of earbuds with a built in microphone into this soundcard.

Next, I went to Zoom settings and made sure the audio and microphone settings were selected to the same Realtek onboard soundcard.

Finally, I plugged in a USB soundcard and plugged in a pair of earbuds into this, then in Jaws settings I selected this USB soundcard.

I then use the earbud with the microphone in one ear so I can hear all Windows sounds, including audio I wanted to play, then one of the other earbuds from the pair plugged in to the USB soundcard into my other ear so I can hear Jaws.

I can then do whatever I like on the PC and the other participants can’t hear Jaws talking.


Hope this helps,

I could hear it as I’m
