    Exactly what the subject says, there are no sounds whatsoever (youtube videos,
    games, etc) while Mumble is open. I do not need to be on a server or anything,
    simply having it open mutes all other sounds on my computer. Upon closing
    Mumble, my sounds resume as normal.

    These are the solutions I have tried:
    -Setting communications to 'do nothing'
    -Turning attenuation to 0%
    -Running all programs as admin
    -Turning off exclusive in input/output

    Oh, I should probably note that when I change a setting and hit OK, I'll heal
    a blip of the background sound as the Settings window closes, then back to
    being muted.

    Found a solution.

    I had "Speakers/Headphones" and "Communications Headphones" listed as the two
    types of output devices under Playback Devices. My computer is using
    Speakers/Headphones for everything except Mumble, which was on Communications
    Headphones. Changing Mumble to use Speakers/Headphones as well fixed the
    problem.
