    Alright,I've been having this issue with mumble since I downloaded it,Its not
    about the sound block settings from windows 7 opions in right corner
    itself.Whenever I open mumble even If I do NOT join a channel every other
    applications sound get blocked.Only If someone writes something on skype,that
    ding sound is able to be heard.I've been asking sourceforge livechat and
    official mumble livechats over the past 4 months but no solutions,no one using
    mumble around me knows either(around 50+ people) I really could use some
    help,thank you ladies & gentles.

    I have this problem to. I start mumble it blocks sound from twitchtv blocks
    world of warcraft any game.
    when I try to adjust settings and click apply I hear sound for 1/2 a second.

    I do not have exclusive mode checked and do not have attenuate going.

    I'm on windows 7 and using Mumble 1.2.3 version

    As you mention Skype playing sounds, did you check it’s not a skype issue?
    Did you try to completely quit Skype and not have it in autostart, and see if
    the issue persists with Mumble?

    What I/O API do you use? (ASIO, ASAPI)

    When you launch mumble and the issue occurs, do any of the volume sliders
    With ASAPI check the full mixer, where you can see the individual volume
    levels of individual applications. Make sure you have the mixer open for the
    correct output device.

    Do you have a multi-soundcard system? Or sth else unusual? Headphones with
    integrated sound card?
    What kind of sound-card do you use? Did you try updating the drivers?

    Did you try increasing Mumbles jitter buffer? (Maybe the driver/sound-chip
    totally fucks up after trying to process small packets.)
