I am interested in using TeamViewer as my replacement for LogMeIn, which recently announced the termination of their free remote control service. Since I am using TeamViewer, I decided that I want to set up audio streaming as well so that I can hear what's going on at the base computer. The strange this is that although I have configured TeamViewer to stream sounds, TeamViewer mutes the System Sounds every time I remotely connect to my computer. I have found that I can stream sounds when I unmute the System Sounds, but is there any way to stop TeamViewer from muting the System Sound on its own?
I've also encountered this. I was not able to solve it, but I did notice that if I log in without requesting sound (Extra -> Options -> Remote Control -> Uncheck "Play computer sounds and music"), it does not mute the remote computer.
This was enough for me since I don't need the remote sounds, I only cared about not muting the remote computer.
I had a similar problem, and tried the suggestion above (Uncheck "Play computer sounds and music"), but mine was already un-checked. Here is my solution:
Try opening the Viewer Window. In the top TOOLBAR, attached to the frame of the viewer window, Click on AUDIO/VIDEO, and de-select COMPUTER SOUNDS. If you cannot see the top toolbar, then there should be a small pull-down tab to bring the tool bar down. On my TeamViewer 10, this toolbar is a light grey color.
Hope that helps!
