Browser source audio mutes when selecting "control audio via OBS"


New Member
I have been trying to find a way to make my sound alerts come through on my stream without having my desktop audio enabled. I don't want to enable my desktop audio because I have my game/music audio tracked separately so I don't have music appearing my my twitch VODs. However, now my alerts do not play audio through to my stream. I enabled the "control audio via OBSs" option and changed my monitor settings to every possible setting but when I have this box ticked I do not hear alert audio at all. The slider doesn't even move so it's not receiving any sound, but when I don't have this box ticked I hear the alert through my headphones via desktop audio. How can I make it so this sound plays through my stream?
