Very bad sound with Kinect microphone array

,

Since the version 3.5 of Teamspeak, the voice captured is slow and choppy if the microphone used is the microphone array of the Kinect v2 from Microsoft.
I tested with the latest beta of TeamSpeak 5, it’s the same.

With the 3.3.2 version, no problem. With another microphone, no problem too.

I think the Kinect from Microsoft is not supposed to be used as a Microphone on a Computer. The Problem I think is that this Device is officially supposed to work with an Xbox.

Kinect 2 for Windows is design to work on a computer. All others software works fine, only recent Teamspeak version have this problem.

I use it for Windows Hello and for video meetings (with Microsoft Teams by example) and it’s a really good device for that.

I have the same problem with my new professional laptop : HP EliteBook 855 G7.
I’m using the integrated microphone.

Could it be that you have a too low upload bandwith available? you can check the bandwith within the channel settings. (don’t exceed 90% of your max bandwith) ?

Did you tried your Microphone in the Windows settings under

-> Sounds -> Capture -> Microphone -> Listen -> Use this device to listen?

or Playback options, untick the auto gain?
