How to add radio channels to a teamspeak server

Updated July 20, 2017

Most administration and moderation tasks performed on a Windows TeamSpeak server are configured through an administrator account on the actual TeamSpeak client. Using an administrator-level account allows you to create and modify channels using several options. The extensive configuration possibilities allows you to create a unique server that is personalised to its users. One interesting idea is to create a channel for music. To add a radio channel to your server you will first need to configure Windows to use audio output as the default recording device instead of the microphone port.
