[OPEN] Microphone Issue

Post by ayushdutta321 »

So i have arcolinux D and when i am playing any youtube video, my headphone microphone is automatically picking up the sound. So when i speak my microphone is picking up both desktop audio and my voice. The desktop audio should only go to my headphone right? but my microphone is picking it up too.

I am on a laptop too and using a wired headphone with inbuilt microphone. Laptop has only one jack for both audio in and audio out.

How do i fix this ?
please help. :)

Rule out hardware by testing with an other one.

yeah i just tried with 2 different microphones and its the same.
It may be a thing with laptops only because this issue is not there in the PC.
Temporarily I fixed this with pavucontrol by lowering the microphone input and it works very good.

yeah for sure .. I just updated to the latest LTS kernel - 5.8.3
And its the same.
I think for now its not causing me any problems. Every thing works great. I will leave it as it is as its not causing any problems right now. And the pauvcontrol trick is workinf just fine :D
I will let you know if it any thing else occurs.

Thanks for taking the time to help.
Ayush.
