Eliminating echo is usually a matter of applying some easy fixes to your setup.


Adjust your setup

  1. Mute or stop all players running in the background of your computer.

    You can do this by closing all browser tabs and making sure that the stream preview on your Restream home screen isn't playing with audio enabled.

    Having the stream playback on the same device you use for streaming not only takes additional CPU resources but may also play back the sound of your stream, which leads to an echo in the final video.

  2. Use headphones to lower the chance of capturing unnecessary sounds.


Test a local recording

  1. Try streaming and recording locally with your equipment.

  2. If the local recording has an echo, it means your audio sources are not set up correctly or are malfunctioning. Make sure you've followed the above recommendations and try restarting your equipment.

  3. If your stream has an echo but your local recording doesn't, please contact our Support team, and we will assist further.
