Way to disable the sounds which Intel MCA is making on certain actions?


I would like to know if there is a way to disable all or some of the sounds, the Intel MCA makes after certain actions. For example, I'm using the Camera-API within Java, and when I capture a video frame, there is some "camera shutter sound" coming up.

So, is there a way to disable those sounds, e.g. via the MCA configuration, or maybe a workaround (deleting the sound-files? Where are those located)?

Thanks a lot for your help

Best regards,

Hi Timo,

There is not a way to disable sound through the MCA SDK or MCA config file. However, what you can do is rename/remove individual sound files or the entire sound folder at: %MCA_INSTALL/DIR% Sounds (i.e. Program Files\Intel\MCA\Sounds )

Alternatively, you can find information on controlling volume through Windows here:

Method 1:

waveOutSetVolume : The waveOutSetVolume function sets the volume level of the specified waveform-audio output device.


Method 2:

IAudioEndpointVolume Interface : The IAudioEndpointVolume interface represents the volume controls on the audio stream to or from an audio endpoint device.
