Last Updated: January 3, 2021
Do you want to annoy your other users on a TeamSpeak channel with different sounds and audio? Or do you want to make it more lively by playing some music? In any case, we got you covered. Follow our quick guide below to learn how to play songs and audio files on TeamSpeak 3.
TeamSpeak 3 is a secure and reliable VoIP service designed for gamers out there. It allows you to set up your own servers that you can modify on your own. You can even host one if you have the hardware that can support it.
Just like Discord, TS3 allows you to create multiple channels in which the users talk and discuss with other people. However, the latter doesn’t have many customization features and options that you can use.
Although TS3 lacks customization features, there are a couple of add-ons that you can use to improve your experience with the app. Some of these plugins can even allow you to play songs and audio on any channel.
So if you want to make your channel lively with some music, or if you like to annoy your friends by playing different sounds, follow our quick tutorial below. We’ll teach you how to play music on your TeamSpeak 3 client.
How to play music and sounds on TeamSpeak 3
For those who have not explored TeamSpeak’s settings, you can’t play music or sounds with its original features. However, you can do so by installing and using an external plugin on your client.
With the help of the RP Soundboard plugin, you can now play music and other audio files on any channel. Just remember that you can’t stream videos and music from online sources like YouTube. You can only play files that you have on your device.
Follow our quick tutorial below to learn how to install and use RP Soundboard to play audio files on TS3:
- On your computer, launch TeamSpeak 3.
- At the top left side of your screen, click Tools > Options. As a shortcut, you can press “Alt + P” on your keyboard.
- Head over to the Add-ons section, and click “Browse online.”
- Search for “RP Soundboard” and install the plugin on your client. Alternatively, you download the installer on myTeamSpeak using your favorite browser.
- After installing the plugin, click “OK” to save the changes.
- Connect to a server, and join a channel.
- Once you’re inside a channel, click Plugins > RP Soundboard > Open Soundboard.
- To add an audio file to the plugin, right-click on one of the buttons and click “Choose file.” Find and select the file in your directory and click Open.
- Left-click on the button to play the audio file on your channel.
You can also customize or change how you play audio using the RP Soundboard. By clicking Settings on the plugin, you get to adjust the volume of the music you want to play. In addition, you can also choose to mute yourself when you play the audio on your channel.
Aside from those settings, you can also crop the sound, assign hotkeys, and adjust the volume of the audio. You can access these settings by right-clicking on one of the buttons and selecting Advanced Options.
Although you can only add up to 10 audio files on the RP Soundboard at the same time, you can always replace any of them. All you have to do is right-click on one of the buttons, select “Choose file,” and add a new audio file from your directory.
To wrap it all up
Now that you have RP Soundboard on your TeamSpeak 3 client, you can now play music and other audio on any channel. Although you can’t stream songs from online sources, you can use and play the ones you have on your computer.
When playing music on a channel, we recommend that you don’t spam loud audio files unless you want to annoy your friends. It’s one of the fastest ways to get muted or banned on a server.
Also, keep the volume of your music low to the point that you can still hear other users talking. Unless you’re using the channel solely for playing music for others, you don’t want to get in the way of the discussions on it.
