Trouble Streaming Game Audio Only

Hey, so I’m trying to stream a game while talking to my friends in a party using the xbox companion game bar on windows 10. However, every time I stream it picks up the party chat no matter what, when all I would like to do is just stream the game audio only. Would anyone know how to somehow separate the audio while still being able to use headphones and a mic on windows 10?


Hey @bryanslater88,

We would like to ask if you have any other audio source to your setup like a built-in speaker to your monitor? that way you can separate them to your voice chat and to your game audio.

Hey. I have the very same setup. I am talking to my friends on xbox companion app, but instead i want my party chat to be audible. The game sound is suppressing it. Others speech volume is good, but my own voice is hardly audible.

I learnt about audio ducking somewhere is that possible in gamecaster. Or are there any other settings i am missing? I want my audio along with friends and game audio to be audible. But game audio suppresses my audio.
Pls help.

Have you tried to check the audio settings of your Xbox game bar? You can check the Mix settings and control the volume from there.

i can reduce the volume from there, but it will make my game exerience a lilttle different… can i not set it via gamecaster?

Gamecaster doesn’t have volume sliders for individual audio sources – the volume settings there are just for the entire System Audio output or Microphone input.
