trio 8800 Issue during sharing a video

We are facing issues during a skype for business meeting when there is a Trio:

partecipants can't listen audio of a video shared via power point.

We have tested People+Content IP also, but partecipants can listen audio only (in the user guide attached there is written "People+Content IP provides video-only content. No audio is shared"

Furthermore end user asks info about the following options of Audio Settings :
