Speakers and Mic

Would anyone know how to play a song thru your computer and unto a chat room etc..instead of going thru the mic? I can't place the mic to the speakers as it makes a sharp noise when it comes near to one another. Do I plug the speakers right into the mic on the sound card? Any suggestions?

Using a Headset (Microphone+Headphone)you can speak/sing and listen. For the best sound quality , in addition to having a good sound card, both parties doing the voice chat must also have very good headsets and favorable network traffic.

If you are using a headset insert the headphone jack (often color coded lemon green) to the Speaker in (usually green) and Microphone Jack (Often color coded red or pink)to Mic in (Pink) port.

I hope this is what the thrust of your question.:-)

plugging your speakers into the mic port would serve no purpose, as there would be no signal going to the speakers from your computer (this may get confusing) to be picked back up by the speakers (which is not even possible) to send back to your computer and into the chat room. In a simpler way, it wouldnt work. Im not sure on this one, but its a suggestion. Try running a "jumper" type cable w/ one end in the output and the other in the mic. unless u have an output connection AND a speaker connection on your sound car, u wouldnt be able to listen to the music you're outputting to the chat. May we know why u need music in the chat? If you have the music in there for an atmosphere effect, I'd just forget it, because my thought is that it would probably not be of the greatest quality.

when i am in chat and someone plays music i just put them on mute. if i want to listen to music i will play what i want in the background. it is very inconsiderate of others i chat to play music while they would rather talk or listen to what others say.

Why not just install winamp, then install the shoutcast plug in. install "simple server", and away you go. half decent music to anyone who connects to you.
