Blutooth Speakers Stop Working In Steam Games. (Please Help Going Crazy)

[ Edited ]

I have recently purchesed a bluetooth speaker to play steam games with rich sound. I custom built my PC, not realizing i didnt have bluetooth support. I purchesed a UBS bluetooth adaptor from bestbuy. Its manufacture is "Rocketfish". Everything is set up properly, as far as i know, because for youtube videos/music it works great. However, once i start up steam, and pick a game to play, there is NO sound what so ever. This can even happen when im playing music from say itunes in the background. I can still hear itunes, but my game has no sound. Even with nothing running in the background, there is no sound once i play a steam game. I tested with NON steam games, such as wow, and other games work fine. I installed the driver disk that came with the UBS blueooth adaptor. Im really not sure whats going on, what steam is doing to make it not work, but its very frustrating. Any help is much appricated.

Hello ultraboard101,

Welcome to Community@ Rocketfish™!

The adapter is not going to be the culprit here.  Our device is just the physical device to allow the connection.  At this point, your best bet is to contact Bose and ask why the speaker is only picking up sopund from certain games.

Yeah i know the adaptor is doing its part, was just hoping someone had an idea. Anyways, i stopped using the bluetooth adaptor, and hooked up an AUX cord. It fixes the problem, and the sound is a lil faster/more accurate. Thanks for the help though, reguardless.
