Installing USB Soundcard using seperate USB Mic

  • @e3v3a said in Installing USB Soundcard using seperate USB Mic:


    I just tried it. Unfortunately with no luck.
    Sound still comes from the audio jack.

  • I reinstalled the whole system using another SD-card.
    Now I can use the seperate USB-Mic and the audio Out comes from the other USB-Soundcard.
    After that I installed all my modules like MMM-Podcast.
    I played the video and … sound comes from the audio jack again:-(
    However the usb mic and alexa are still working fine. It is just MMM-Podcast which uses the audio jack.
    How can that be? I installed the dependecies especially the omxplayer. But that can´t be the reason, or what do you think?
