Hearing an echo with Desktop Audio Streaming?

In multiplayer rooms, your friends can see your avatar, voice chat, and see your desktop screen. However, if you’re watching a movie on your desktop screen, you’ll want your friends to hear the audio from your computer as well. To enable this, you need to setup desktop audio streaming.

Do you hear an echo after enabling Desktop Audio streaming?

If you hear an echo, make sure you disable Oculus Audio Mirroring or SteamVR Audio Mirroring to stop it. Here’s how:

Oculus Desktop:

  • Click the Settings Cog on the top right
  • Click Devices in the left menu
  • Find Audio Output in VR and set it to just Rift Headphones


  • Open SteamVR
  • Press the little down arrow next to the Steam VR Beta title, then Settings
  • Choose Audio and select Audio Mirroring then No audio mirroring
