Audio System Capture Not working

I am trying to stream Skype conversations because Google hangouts is going away August 1st 2019 and I can't seem to get the my Audio System Capture to capture my sound.  I am using a Yeti Blue Microphone, and I can get that audio to work, but I can't get any activity on the bars for the Audio. When I create a layer in screen capture properties it give me the option to use "capture system audio" and I selected that. I even tried to download a driver for Telestream Audio Driver. I found that to be a solution for someone else in the thread. I must be doing something wrong. I am running on a mac with the latest updates. I am nervous because the clock is ticking for my show.

  • Robert Michiels The mac model may be mission-critical.

  • Robert Michiels Macs made after late 2017 use a T2 chip for sound which is not compatible with Gameshow sound driver. Monitoring through USB device seems to be a workaround. Sorry, I can't be specific because you haven't posted the Mac model as requested.

  • Robert Michiels Thanks. That explains the problem. Between changes in the hardware (T2 chip) and OS, our driver isn't compatible. We haven't been able to develop a new driver as Apple hasn't developed an API that avoids latency which isn't good for live streaming. 

    The workaround is to monitor on a USB device. Monitoring by USB avoids the T2 chips and then system sound can be captured.

    I use a Behringer U-Phoria UMC22 hooked up to speakers and headphone but there are less expensive alternatives.
