Work Around for Out Of Your Head “OOYH Output Error” Bug

On the Windows version of Out Of Your Head, some systems when you launch Out Of Your Head, an error pops up saying, “OOYH Output Error.”

Unfortunately we are not 100% sure why this happens on a small percentage of systems.

But here are the steps to fix that error:

  1. Make sure Out Of Your Head is not running.
  2. Go to “Control Panel/Sound” and click on the “Playback” tab.
  3. Double-click on the “Out Of Your Head  Virtual Audio Device” (NOT the “Out Of Your Head  Virtual Audio Device 16 bit” device.)
    Sound_playback_OOYH_Device
  4. In the Properties window, click on the Advanced tab.
  5. In the drop down menu under, “Default Format”, change it to, “24 bit, 48000 Hz (Studio Quality)”.
    OOYH_Set_24bit
  6. Click OK to close the Properties window.
  7. Leave the Sound Control Panel open for now. We are coming right back to it.
  8. Before the next step, disconnect your headphones from your computer or amp.
  9. Now launch Out Of Your Head.
  10. You should not get the “OOYH Output Error” error message.
  11. But Out Of Your Head will not work.
  12. Click on one of the green play buttons in the Out Of Your Head Control Panel.
    (Note: If Out Of Your Head crashes when you hit the green play button, just skip to step #14)
  13. Then exit Out Of Your Head by closing the Out Of Your Head Control Panel.
  14. Now go back to the Windows “Sound” control panel window.
  15. Double-click on the “Out Of Your Head  Virtual Audio Device” (NOT the “Out Of Your Head  Virtual Audio Device 16 bit” device.)
  16. In the Properties window, click on the Advanced tab.
  17. In the drop down menu under, “Default Format”, change it back to, “32 bit, 48000 Hz (Studio Quality)”.
    OOYH_Set_32bit
  18. Click OK to close the Properties window.
  19. Click OK to close the Windows Sound control panel.
  20. Now launch Out Of Your Head.
  21. Again, you should not get the “OOYH Output Error” error message.
  22. But this time Out Of Your Head should be working.
  23. Try connecting your headphones and playing some audio from YouTube or your preferred media player app to make sure Out Of Your Head is working.

    You should not get this error again.

    Sorry about the bug, but we are working on coming up with a fix so this doesn’t happen at all.

    Thanks,

    It doesn’t work. It crashes as soon as I hit one of the green play buttons regardless of the 24/32 bit setting.

    Hi ARKO,
    Sorry about that bug. I updated the instructions. After Out Of Your Head crashes, just skip to step #14 and let me know if that works.
