TeamSpeak DJ: How to Stream Music in Teamspeak 3

It is possible to play music in TS3 from your gaming computer, while maintaining your full Teamspeak voice communications. This method only requires your single Windows gaming machine. The method revolves around launching dual instances of Teamspeak 3 with some helpful audio-routing software.

Difficulty: this technique does require you to be confident enough to tinker with your computer and download and install software.



This Teamspeak music-streaming technique is based on two major outputs

  1. the DJ keeps his own TS3 user login for his voice communications, while
  2. a second TS3 user (the 'jukebox') handles the music streaming into the TS server.

This suggested method is for Windows 7 / Vista users with a single computer of mid-range gaming power. The music player best suited to this method is Winamp. 4GB of RAM and double monitors will help but are not strictly required. This Teamspeak 3 music-streaming works in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows.

The real beauty of this setup is that it gives all TS users the power to adjust/mute the music volume separately from the sender's voice. This is invaluable in MMO raiding, where some people prefer silence while others enjoy the music.

The setup below requires approximately 1 hour of configuring and testing, but the results are definitely worth the time investment.

The complexity involved with this is approximately the same complexity as wiring a new television to a DVD player.

Requirements to Play Teamspeak 3 Music with a Single Computer, Windows 7 / 8 / 10

  1. Winamp music player.
  2. Virtual Audio Cable (this is music routing software, available as trialware or purchased for $30).
  1. DSEO bypass of Windows Signed Driver policy (a benign method for permitting the 3rd party VAC software to run on Windows) -OR- the disabling of driver signing in Windows.
  2. Tweaking of your Teamspeak 3 shortcut to enable double Mumble copies
  3. At least 2GB of memory. Ideally, 4GB.
  4. Approximately 1 hour to install, configure, and test the setup
  5. Ideally: double monitors, so you don't have to alt-tab from game to choose songs
