Transmit audio over TeamViewer


With new version of TeamViewer (8.0) audio is transmited by enabling “Computer sounds” from Audio/Video menu. If you need advanced options you can check other options in Audio/Video menu.

With new TeamViewer V 7.0 we’ve got the possibility to transfer audio from, or to, remote PC. The sound quality is not best (depends on the connection, but it’s also meant for voice, not high quality audio).

The trick is using the new “Voive over IP” option, that can be found under “Audio/Video” menu in TeamViewer’s toolbar. After activating this option, a new widget will appear in the panel. Under the volume controls there is “Transmit my audio now” control, which will start the audio transmission from the PC it’s activated on.

Simple as that, but, as it’s a new option it hasn’t been discovered by many.

    Hey, That’s a good feature by teamwork. Transmission of Audio from remote computer. It works similar to RHUB remote support servers, wherein,you can share your computer audio with your attendees.

    When using Teamviewer to control Foobar on a remote PC, when the music is paused there is a buzzing noise present from the PC’s sound system. This disappears when the TV session is terminated

    If you’re annoyed with endless teamviewer commercial use detection you may like free for home and commercial use Aeroadmin

    It’s simple and does what it’s required from remote desktop software. I’d say – a teamviewer alternative.
    Hope it helps.

      In the new update they removed that option, I hope there will be a new way to do it again.

    I was able to transmit microphone sound from the host to the client however am unable to transmit the sound from say a video playing in windows media player… Is it possible to do this? If not what other solutions can I try alongside TeamViewer? Thanks

    I’m using version 7.0.14563, I don’t see the “Transmit my audio now” option at all. Was it removed recently?

      I can’t see it also, I’ll have to re-test the method.

    Hi Andreas,
    The thing about echo is usualy the sound card settings. Try searching about that same problem (echo) with skype.

    I have found sound quality to be ok, but the major problem is echo. In a setup where one or several people use a mic and speaker on their laptops I always get an echo of my own voice. I have tried many things to cancel this, but the only thing that really works is using a headset, which is not possible in a conference room with many people attending the meeting.

    Robo, I agree that Skype has better sound quality and volume, but sometimes, where skype is blocked, Team Viewer might be the only option. It’s better to know several ways to achieve something.

    I found the sound quite quiet, I guess using skype for calling while using the teamviewer might be a better option.

    I have TV 7 installed on the Mac. I see everything you describe, but there’s no “Transmit my audio now.”

      Screenshot shows local and remote modules, and where the “Stop audio transmission” can be located in both of them. “Transmit my audio now.” should be located in the same spot.
