This Topic is intended to help save significant amounts of time and frustration for those attempting to use BroadWave to stream audio from a remote location.
I have been attempting to use RDP to stream from a remote computer with an attached microphone to my BroadWave streaming computer. I can get audio to the server computer from my remote computer and can even record it with NCH's WavePad editor but no matter what I do, including installing a couple other pieces of software (fabulatech's Sound Over RDP, for example) BroadWave will NOT pick up the audio.
After many hours of testing, tweaking, and re-testing I finally emailed NCH (I didn't buy the additional support) and patiently waited for a reply. In essense, remote audio to BroadWave is not supported. Here is the reply I received:
So that being the case, I have a horribly clugy work-around.
1. Set up BroadWave lite on my remote computer.
2. Post a link to the stream on my website and bury the page.
--- BTW - it won't work unless you click the link from the page - at least not for long. I was able to just paste the link into my player for a couple weeks but after the trial expired it wouldn't play remotely until I posted the link with the NCH advert.
3. RDP to Server Machine
4. Open buried web page from step 2 and click stream link.
5. Start BroadWave and select "Stereo Mix" as input source.
This process works but there is a significant (about 45-60 second) delay and there is a further complication of having 3 places to adjust levels and wait 60 seconds to see full effect of adjustments.
If anyone has any other suggestions, I am open to them as I need to be able to give this set up to tech novices and have them be able to get it running without my assistance.
Thank you kindly.
