I wrote a post a while back about Audio Issues I was having with Windows 10 on Virtualbox.

This morning I woke up, switched the PC on and saw there was an update for Virtualbox so I installed it and BOOM! the audio stuttering issues on Windows 10 seem to have gone away, although there is still the occasional blip in audio which I can live with (but it winds me up)

To say I was confused by this error when it first struck was an understatement I’ve torn out what little hair I have while troubleshooting.

But now around 6 months later we know the real culprit was indeed VB, People thought I was imagining the problem when I reported it way back on the 21 Jul 2017.

I just hope next time it happens that they get a bug fix out for it quicker than they have…

Now maybe I can go back to listening to my music on Windows 10, Windows 7 was OK but it did my head in with the constant “activate” balloon messages.

I knew it couldn’t have been RadioDJ at fault as that works when its usually required for playing music with.

Update February 2018: The audio issues weren’t quite solved in the last update for Virtualbox which has now led us to start using other virtualisation software

We’ve had NO audio issues since we switched to VMware its stable and sounds amazing it works like a virtualization solution should…

Update June 2019

It appears that the audio issues are still persisting on Virtualbox with Windows 10 as we’ve had a few recent searches pertaining to that issue.
