Discord is a software focused on regular online text, voice, and video communication. Probably the most stunning feature of Discord is screen share. Users can effortlessly stream their screen to a friend or even to everyone on the same speech channel; for instance, stream Netflix on Discord, and many more.

Making your Discord server and chatting with your friends is simple enough, but while Discord faults are uncommon, they can still prevent you from accessing the platform.

Discord users may experience streaming sound problems, preventing them from hearing audio when they share their screen on Discord (and vice versa). The voice settings on the Discord application or Windows might be messed up. So, in this article, I have shared some methods to help you resolve the Discord stream no sound issue. Once fixed, you can even select an excellent screen recorder to capture Discord calls or audio effortlessly. Read on to find out more!

So, this is how to go about it:

Step 1. Open Discord on your PC and log in.

Step 1. Open Discord on your PC, and in the left pane, under APP SETTINGS, click on the Voice & Video option. 

Step 2. Scroll down, and you will find two options under VIDEO CODEC. If you are using the desktop app, toggle off the OpenH264 Video Codec slider to change to a different audio codec.

Step 3. Additionally, you can turn off a few voice processing features. If specific audio devices (like your Discord mic) are not operating as intended, toggle off Advanced Voice Activity and Automatic Gain Control options.


Step 4. Quality of Service (QoS) is used by Discord to ensure that calls and streaming are prioritized above other local network traffic, but this occasionally results in problems. So, toggle off the Enable Quality of Service High Packet Priority slider to disable the feature and check whether the sound is working.
