What can I check if I'm experiencing audio issues?

Troubleshooting Checklist

  • Is your microphone working in other programs? If yes, check your microphone selection within CarmenConnect.

    • Right-click within the Meeting Room and select Settings. Then select the microphone icon within the popup window and make sure the webcam you want is selected.

    • If the audio still experiences issues, check your Flash settings for CarmenConnect.

  • Have you activated your microphone within the CarmenConnect room, using the Audio Setup Wizard?

  • Is your microphone set to mute? Check that the Microphone icon at the top of the meeting room should be green, not white.

  • Have you cleared your internet cache?

  • Have you cleared your Flash cache?

  • Are you experiencing random volume fluxuations? Try reducing your volume control for games and PC calls.

  • Universal Participant Speaking Rights a select Audio option and then select Microphone Rights For Participants
