5.2.0 r118431 Sound Problem (#17409)

Postby Gene77072 » 1. Dec 2017, 21:14

[ModEdit; related ticket: #17409: MODIFYVM_AUDIOOUT in VBoxManageModifyVM.cpp, a copy of MODIFYVM_AUDIOIN]

I noticed that none of my Guests were playing sound. Further inspection of Audio settings showed that two settings were not defaulted ON. Both were OFF.
In vboxmanage, the two values are
vboxmanage machinename --audioin on --audioout on

I added these two options to my machine generation script.
Input Audio In will toggle to ON based off of the command however Audio Out will not.
I have to either go through GUI Machine settings or manually change by accessing Sound Tray Icon.

Can you please try to enable audio debugging and work through the article here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/AudioDebug

Without any logs or additional data it's impossible for us to help you further. Thanks!

I believe that this is actually a bug in VirtualBox 5.2.x, I filed a new ticket, #17409. See in there for more details...
