Streaming without recording TeamSpeak

To Stream while on NAK Squad servers you must follow our Streaming Rules and Guidelines. One of those rules states “NAK Squad has decided not to allow the recording of any TeamSpeak communications because Federal and State laws of the United States prohibit the unauthorized, non-consensual interception or recording of “wire, oral, or electronic communications”. So in order to stream, we need to be able to separate your desktop and game audio from the TeamSpeak audio.

There are multiple ways to split audio signals in Windows 10.  In this document, we are going to cover the easiest method and refer you to external sources for a second more complicated method, but a more feature-rich method.

All of these instructions apply to Windows 10.  If you are using another version of Windows it is possible to split the audio signals but the steps may vary.

Step 1: Download VB-CABLE Virtual Audio Device from vb-audio. (link valid 6/10/20)

Step 2: UNZIP the package in a folder somewhere on your hard-disk.

Step 3: Launch the appropriate setup program from there IN ADMINISTRATOR MODE! (right-click on the appropriate setup program and select “Run as Administrator”.

VBCABLE_Setup.exe will install the driver for 32 bit O/S

VBCABLE_Setup_x64.exe will install the driver for 64 bit O/S

During installation, the setup application may show as “not responding” for a few seconds. It is not a problem, just wait at the end of the installation (a dialog-box will say you when it is finished).

Step 4: Restart Windows.

Step 5: Open Sound Control Panel.

Open File Explorer (Win + E)

In the Address Bar type ‘Control Panel\Hardware and Sound’ press Enter

Click Sound

Step 6: Click the ‘Playback’ tab

Step 7: Click ‘Voicemeter Input’ and click ‘Set Default’

Step 8: Click the ‘Recording’ tab

Step 9: Click ‘Voicemeter Aux Output’

Step 10: Click ‘Properties’

Step 11: Click the ‘Listen’ tab

Step 12: Check ‘Listen to this device’

Step 13: From the ‘Playback through this device’ dropdown select your normal speakers or headphones

Step 14: Click ‘Ok’

Step 15: Start TeamSpeak

Step 16: Select ‘Tools’ > ‘Options’

Step 17: Select Playback

Step 18: From the ‘Playback Device’ dropdown select your normal speakers or headphones.

Step 19: Click ‘Ok’

Step 20: Open OBS (There are many OBS audio configurations)

Step 21: Select your OBS scene

Step 22: Right Click in Sources and select ‘Add’, select ‘Audio Output Capture’

Step 23: Add a unique name for the audio capture click ‘OK’

Step 24: In the properties window from the ‘Device” drop-down select ‘VoiceMeter Input’.

You will need to add any additional Sources in OBS such as Audio Input Capture for your microphone and a Game Capture or Display Capture for your video source.

With this configuration, you will be able to record or Stream in-game or desktop audio and not TeamSpeak audio.  TeamSpeak will still broadcast over your normal speakers or headphones.

More Complex Method

The more complex method is going to use another piece of software, VoiceMeter Banana, from the same company vb-audio. VoiceMeter Banana has many additional features, including mixers, volume gates, and gain settings, among others.  For a tutorial video for how to install and configure VoiceMeter Banana you can refer to  There are many other tutorials online, but this one is well done and easy to follow.
