Note: You should choose the same bit rate settings for the playback and recording device you use with Paltalk
Click on 'video and audio' on the left side of the settings window.
Use the 'speaker' drop down menu to select your playback device. This is usually the 'default' playback device that you had set previously in the sound control panel.
Now try joining some rooms. You should be able to hear people speaking or playing music.
If not, check your Windows volume mixer. Left click on the speaker icon at the lower right of your screen.
Now use the volume slider to increase the volume. Try sliding it the whole way to the right. You should hear sound or music in the room now. Try hopping around to different rooms to verify it's working now.
If you still have no sound, right click on the speaker icon, and select 'open volume mixer'.
Use the 'Paltalk settings' slider to adjust the volume for Paltalk.
If you still don't have sound, double and triple check your connections. Make sure everything is plugged in, turned on, and any volume controls are turned up.
If all else fails, your cat may have chewed your cables (don't laugh it happens). Examine your cords and cables to see if you see little pinhole tooth marks.... (BAD kitty!)
