hey.. jus wandering if its possible to have simultaneous audio from 2 seperate sound cards running from windows media player. can anybody help me here? if you're wandering why i need this, its because i have a bluetooth headset which i run off a usb sound card and my speakers/wired headphones off my internal sound card, and it would be very helpful if i could run wireless and wired at the same time (kind of like an audio hub if you know wat i mean) ohh and also this is for watching videos, i have a program already that can do it with audio files. thanks for any help. cheers
It is possible to run two soundcards simultaneusly, what you really need is not windows media player, but winamp, or even a decent dj program such as Native Instruments Traktor. With winamp you will probably need a crossfader plugin and possibly another plugin to link up the soundcards, but all said winamp is going to be the cheapest solution for you, but the most perfect solution would be the Traktor DJ program.
All the best, and good luck
From Windows 98 on it's possible to run 2 sound cards, they will simply be 2 different output devices. You can select one as primary and when the 1st is in use, you can play another sound on the second. So this makes it possible to play different sounds simultaneously.
When you want the same sound on multiple output devices, you're better off using one sound card and a minijack splitter.
I've run 2 sound cards on 98SE myself. Open sound file one, and it plays on the primary device. Open sound file two while one is still playing, and it plays on the secondary device. In certain applications it's also possible to select what sound card to use. With MIDI you can divide the instruments over the two cards.
ye but i want to play the same audio through both sound cards (like i said earlier its basically like putting a splitter in but not because i need it to run from 2 seperate sound cards)
That topic came from the google link I gave you and the software at the bottom of that topic should make it work for video. Your audio player apparently is able to send output to two sound cards simultaneously, which is a feature of that specific software NOT implemented in the default Windows sound system.
