Windows 7: 1 video output playing 2 audio languages simultaneously?

26 Oct 2015   #1

1 video output playing 2 audio languages simultaneously?

Good afternoon! Just joined this forum in the hope I can find an answer to my problem! I've tried searching online but found no answers so far. This is the issue:

I'd like to be able to insert a DVD in my PC and be able to play the video with 2 languages at the same time via different outputs. So basically I'd have a external sound card that has 2 audio outputs and I'd like to be able to tell the media player to stream English to output1 and Spanish to output2. This way if I have the headphones plugged into output1 I can watch the movie in English and the other person can hear Spanish in their headphones on output2.

With only 1 video playing though of course.

Is this possible? I'm having real trouble finding a solution to this!

Thanks in advance!

Windows will only allow one default audio playback device. Thus you can't do that with Windows limitation. There may be some third party program that will split the sound, like you want, but I'm not aware of any.
