Using ZOOM with VATSIM

Hello, Everyone,

 

This may be an unusual question, but I recently connected on ZOOM (using screen sharing) with a fellow simmer to show him what VATSIM ATC is all about. The computer sounds were being heard by my friend, but not the VATSIM communications through vPilot.

Is there a way to allow ZOOM (or some other screen sharing app, perhaps) to hear the ATC communications from vPilot? I thought this was going to work and finally convince my friend to join VATSIM, but all he could hear were the MSFS2020 sounds, not ATC.

Any suggestions?

Mark

Ross,

The audio output was set to my Sound Blaster speakers. I was connected to my headset and microphone via the audio jacks on the desktop PC, as i usually do when doing a flight on VATSIM. The sound will automatically switch from speakers to headset when plugged in.

The other options in vPilot for audio output are: 

SPDIF-Out

Digital Audio (S/PDIF)

(I am using a Sound Blaster  Z audio card in my setup).

I was conducting a test flight and wanted to demonstrate the pilot/ ATC communications that happens with VATSIM. If livestream is the only other option, then so be it.

To answer Ross’s question above, yes both the sim and vPilot are coming through the same audio device.
