I recently created a virtual machine through VMware Workstation of Ubuntu 20.04. However, when playing videos or any media, there is no sound.
I am using an Ideapad 5 (Ryzen 7 4800U, Radeon Vega 8, 16GB, 512GB). I have already installed the proper driver of Realtek and enabled the Stereo Mix as in this video (https://youtu.be/65eh7P_kIAI). I have enabled it but there is no sound. When I went through the comments, there was also advice about going to properties of Stereo Mix > second tab from the left (Listen) > enabling ‘listening in’. When doing this, it produces an echo affect on my main system and the ‘connected’ box remains greyed out.
Initially, I thought it was due to some issues of my laptop but I tried making a virtual machine and it works. I want to switch to Virutal Box since it works but the thought of why the sound is not connecting is eating away at me.
Has anyone else faced this same issue?
