The common factors that affect audio quality are Network stability and CPU speed.
Audio is choppy
- Most of the time, it is your network connection.
- If using older computers, consider upgrading your computer or mobile device.
- Make sure you are not running other video conferencing software (e.g. Skype, Facetime)
- If in a group call, consider reducing the number of participants.
- Make sure that you or the other party's microphone and speaker is not muted.
- Make sure you quit other video conferencing software (e.g. Skype, Hangouts), then exit VSee Messenger and log-in again.
- Upon restarting VSee Messenger, please make sure you have selected the right audio devices. See guide.
- For iOS and Android mobile devices, please read our tips here.
No Audio after Upgrading to Windows 10
Other caller's audio is too soft
- Ask them to turn up their mic volume through their Audio and Camera Setup window.
- You can turn up their volume using the slider at the bottom of their video window.
- Get them to speak into their microphone.
- Identify the person who is causing the echo.
- In a one-to-one video call, if you are hearing an echo of your voice, it means that the other user's microphone is causing the echo.
- In a group video call, if you are hearing an echo, check the video window of the call participants who are not speaking but have a green audio wave that is moving. This means the microphone is picking up sound from that speaker and causing echo.
- Use headphones instead of speakers. This completely eliminates the possibility of echo. Turning the speaker volume all the way up also causes clipping.
- Mute the microphone if you are not talking.
- Switch devices. If you are using the webcam mic, we suggest using the built-in mic and speaker. Sometimes when the microphone and speaker are two different devices - there's clock drift - which would cause echo.
- Use speaker phones. We recommend the Jabra 410 Speakerphone or Jabra 510 for Bluetooth support.
- Try switching between AEC (Audio Echo Cancellation) and AECm.
