Windows 7: Splitting Outputs to use Skype and Music Playback simultaneously, HELP

Splitting Outputs to use Skype and Music Playback simultaneously, HELP

Here's the thing.

I'd like to run Foobar2000 or VLC Media player, running through my S/PDIF out, and My skype through my Analog 3.5mm Audio Jacks.

First off, Can Win7x64 even split audio?

And if so, Any ideas?

reason being is my system is sometimes used as an HTPC, While I'm trying to get work done on skype.

I don't even know if it's possible in 7, and I am using all the stock audio on my Mainboard,
I sold my M-Audio 1010-24/96kHz, so if you're checking specs and wondering, It's no longer an option, Although that would have routed them perfectly.


Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm sorry to say that, form my own experience this is impossible to achieve for free without corrupting your own Audio drivers and by the sounds of it that won't even work in this case!

It is also near impossible to achieve if you pay for it unless you buy some really specialist, expensive software and special extra hardware!

Sorry for dashing your hope but there still is a chance that someone will come up with a great solution to this I've never seen before (although very unlikely ).

Have you tried to enable both devices and set the S/PDIF out as the default device. Then in the Skype Audio Settings under speakers select the 3.5mm Audio Jacks.

Good Luck

I don't know what "mah comp is a DAW!" means but ok and glad you got it fixed.

PS: can you please mark the thread as solved?
