Sound over RDP Overview


This is a sound virtualization tool enabling two-way sound stream from your local computer to the remote Windows session over RDP.

Normally two-way sound connection for such applications as Skype, NetMeeting, AIM, ICQ, or various dictation programs within remote desktop environments is impossible. In some applications you can hear the sound but you cannot send anything in return. There is no native RDP input/output sound support in applications using DirectSound and you have no possibility to use a microphone within your remote desktop session.

With Sound over RDP you can transfer input/output audio streams of high sampling rate and bitrate with low latency to your remote RDP session and back. No choppy sound or cut-offs!

How it works

Sound over RDP enables quick and reliable two-way sound stream within a remote desktop environment.

The software is absolutely easy to use. All you need to do is simply install the Workstation part on your local computer and the Server part on the remote side. That's it! As soon as you are logged in to your remote desktop you can use local microphone, headphones, speakers and other audio equipment.

The output audio stream will be played back from your remote session through your local headphones or speakers. The audio software in your remote session will function with your microphone audio stream as if it were plugged directly into the remote side.

Audio stream isolation

If there is more than one user logged in to the remote side, you can be sure that each sound device is isolated within its individual session so you don't need to worry that somebody else will hear your incoming or outcoming audio stream. You don't need to scan through the list of input/output devices of other users to find your microphone or headphones. Such isolation allows you to work with your audio stream exclusively.
