No sound-output when streaming with OBS

Hi guys,

The last few days I tried streaming Beat Saber and the video is fine, but I can't manage to also stream the sound - stream is basically silent.
I was looking around for solutions, but mostly I found stuff about the Oculus Quest, not about the Rift S that I have.

State now:
I am hearing the music from beat saber coming from the Oculus headset. I also enabled the option to mirror the sound to my PC headset as described here: https: //support.oculus.com/155708918506052/ (delete the space I put in there)
In OBS I never had issues streaming PC-games. I tried leaving the audio-setting on standard or change to the PC-headset or the Oculus-headset but OBS doesn't recognize any sound from my VR world^^ I also tried streaming "game", "window" or even my full desktop, it does recognize the game, but not the sound. I am wondering if the mirror-output to the PC headset even works, I don't know how to check since I can't use both headsets at the same time and as soon as I put down the VR-headset it shuts down or something.

In the Oculus options for the mirror-sound setting it says it will turn off when the desktop is getting used in VR, maybe that is the issue since I use to pin the OBS-window somewhere around me so I can look at it when playing Beat Saber (btw any ideas why windows are sometimes blanc when pinned? Specially noticed that with Discord), maybe that disabled the sound-mirroring?

Would be great so hear if anyone else has similar issues and ideas how to solve this πŸ™‚

So you hear the game audio, but it doesn't go out on stream? Then you must select "monitor & output" in advanced audio properties of your audio source in OBS.

Well in OBS you must add the new audio output source. Rift S is the new audio source. Or you can just go into Oculus software and set it up so it plays audio trough your PC headset, instead of speakers in headset.  I had Rift S and that's how i streamed VR games with OBS.

Thanks LoneEcho!
I had to do that and set the output to Rift S. As a side-note, I didn't notice that there are 2 different Oculus speakers to chose from, one is "Rift S" and the other one is called something with "Oculus", I guess that was the issue, now it works!
