When I'm on a voice or video call, the other person can't hear what I'm playing in Windows Media Player, or a podcast on a website. I have a Toshiba Satellite P200 running Windows 7 and Windows Live Messenger.

The video and audio are both working perfectly - it is just what I'm listening to at the same time that can't be heard.

Are you wearing headphones? Can the microphone pickup the speakers? – Justin Pearce May 2 '11 at 20:32
no, no headphones, just the computer speakers and mic. – 웃mauri May 2 '11 at 20:33
Could there be some noise cancellation nonsense happening? – Justin Pearce May 2 '11 at 20:34

Have you tried a different media player? – Justin Pearce May 2 '11 at 20:46
