Default Audio Output


Political Access

Vista allows you to change the audio output device ... say USB headphones to speakers and vice versa. My question is, is there a way to change the output device after an application is open instead of closing it down, changing the default output device and restarting the application again?

Much thanks.
Seems like you can if the application supports it. Skype for example lets you change all your outputs without closing the program. Unfortunately it is the only app I've seen to do this. Wish iTunes and some other media players would do so as well.
Foobar2000 will but you have to stop and restart the file you are playing.
you didn't ask if an application could do it, you asked if windows would do it :)

Ask the right question I'll give you the right answer :)
Interesting. The way I read the question ... it would read either way ... the application or the OS.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
