No Virtual Audio Device

Hello. I am trying to install virtual audio devices - like VoiceMeeter, for instance - that would take audio that plays back on the VM and makes it appear as a microphone source. This would be used to run streaming like Open Broadcast Studio, or even Skype - from a VM and broadcast a video playing back on a VM.

The issue is that these programs need an audio device as an "input". Even after installing several different types of virtual audio devices, none of them ever come up in Sound Devices or Sound Control panel.

The sound coming through RDP using the "remote audio" device works fine, but when trying to install any additional virtual audio devices, it appears as if it doesn't change anything.

    Try checking the settings and configurations of the virtual audio device software you are using. Make sure the virtual audio device is properly installed and configured on the VM. Additionally, you can check the settings of the streaming or video conferencing software you are using to ensure that the correct input device is selected. Additionally, you may want to check the network configuration, security rules and firewall settings of your Azure VM and ensure that the virtual audio device software can communicate with other applications and services as needed.
