Different Sound for Different Displays

In was looking around the net and couldn't find any answers for this.
Is there any way i can make it so when i have an extended desktop that sound from the windows on the extended desktop(Connected through HDMI) will only play through that monitor and the windows on the main display(laptop) will only come from the speakers on the computer?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome, polraudio!

If your HDMI connection is used to display a movie on a TV set, then there should be no problem, in the old days I used to used an S-video cable and an audio cable to do just that.

However, if you mean the actual Windows sounds, such as the little clicks and bells which you might set up for your window openings or explorer page changes or menus, etc., then I don't think this is possible. I am not aware of any "extended sound field", I think audio output is rather separate from video output and usually Windows have only one audio output. for example, suppose you use headphones with your laptop. Then all sound goes through the headphones, you can't set them up in addition to your laptop speakers.

If I am wrong, then maybe someone will correct me. If there is a possibility fro two people to use the same computer at the same time for e.g. talking on Skype with headphones and watching a movie with speakers at the same time, I would be very interested in how one can achieve that. But as far as I know, this is impossible.

It would be nice to have someone using my computer and have their own music and sounds on the laptop while i have the extended desktop on the TV playing a movie with its own sound.

Thats what im trying to do.

If there's a program i would be glad to use it even if i have to pay.

I'm not aware of any such program. If someone knows, I am very interested to learn about it as well.
