Monitoring Audio During Live Event

If I connect headphones to a device that's feeding the audio into Connect,

will the audio I hear be from before it goes to the Connect server or

after it comes back from the server?

That all depends on how you are connected/hearing the audio. If you are listening through Connect, it would be after it comes back from the server.

What is the details of your configuration? What are you trying to listen to?

My goal is to determine the best way to monitor the audio from the end

user's perspective. I learned the hard way that Connect does not like

activating both speakers and mic on the same device for obvious reasons

but has no problem doing so with a headset. So, it must know if the sound

is going through a headset or through the device's speakers. But when I

try to use simple headphones, i.e. no attached microphone, but still feed

audio through the device's aux input, the audio I hear in the headphones

appears to not be delayed as the audio from the server would be. This

suggests that Connect? or the device itself- is feeding the audio to me

BEFORE it sends it to the server for distribution. I want to hear the

audio AFTER it's gone to the server so that I can most accurately

experience the same conditions as my attendees. If they report choppy

audio but mine is fine, I know that the problem is local for them. That

type of thing.

If you are trying to hear it on the same device, join the room a second time. The second instance will deliver the audio from the server, and you can hear it that way. Alternatively, have a second computer logged into the room and listen on that. Both those options will ensure you hear the same audio stream as everyone else.

I've been using a second device for that very purpose but I didn't know if

the audio on the first, originating device was from the server or not. Do

you know?

The only way I can find to hear myself using VoIP is to do the microphone volume adjustment, which stops broadcasting my audio so you hear the audio directly from your mic, or to tell Windows to allow me to listen to the audio from my mic. Either option will have you hear the audio before it goes to the server. What steps are you using to hear the audio being broadcast on the same computer?
