    Hi guys,

    Do you know how to direct a program's sound output to a specific audio output port using the Mixer or other third party program? I would like to have my game sound output to my headphones and my music to output to my speakers. Has anybody done this before?

    Thanks,

    Welcome to the windows7forums. : )

    It's impossible to redirect audio output to different devices. I personally can redirect a player output to hdmi, a game to speakers, this way:

    1. Set hdmi the default audio output. Start a player with music.
    2. While the player is on through HDMI, I set my speakers the default audio output. Start my game now with its sound in the speakers.
