Sorry to hear you are having trouble.
and would like to get the audio working as my current solution relies on a physical connection which is very poor quality.
Why is the physical connection 'poor quality'?
I do have a connection, and I can get audio across. But after 30 -60 seconds it gets EXTREMELY choppy. I set the buffering control to maximum, and it does not help. Even though videos are almost unwatchable because of the audio delay, LOL.
If you unmute the sender, is its sound 'choppy' from it as well?
The reason for asking is MP sends what it 'hears'.
I'm on a gigabit connection and tested my connection between the 2 PCs using CommTest and I'm getting around 120 Mbps in and 50 Mbps out with zero latency on the sending PC. Assuming audio is in the Kbps range as it normally is, bandwidth should not be an issue.
Are both PCs on the same connection medium (Ethernet, wireless, for example). If at all possible, test with them both connected via Ethernet.
