Stupid question

Sorry for asking this stupid question here, but anyway:
On the computer, how can I make it so that I only hear sounds from one application (the first one I have launched) and not from any other application? For example, when listening to music, I don't want to hear sounds from any other appliaction (like games).

I know it is possible, but I don't know how.

Well if you dont want your sound files to be played in a program such as Media Player you need to go into 'options' then the 'format' tab. There you can view what file types are associated with with the program. Uncheck which sound files you dont want played in WMP. The sound file will then probably play in the alternative program.

What? You completely misunderstood my question!

What I meant is that I don't want o hear anything else from any other application but the first one I've launched. How do I do that?

get a one channel sound card?
Well, I thought the defult set up on most Pc's was that applications couldn't share the use of the sound card.
I get an error when I try too play two waves.
Midis and waves can co-exist though.
--
I suppose you can try device manager, then check your sound card settings.

Thanks for the help really!

If you didn't understand, by saying I don't know how to use the Device Manager I meant I want some help on how to use it.
Now, can anyone please help me, or should I just go ask somewhere else?

If it was possible or at least easy to make, there would be a program for it. I've searched download.com but couldn't find anything that could do this. I could only find some programs to control WinAmp's volume while playing a game.

How 'bout this - When you want to listen to Winamp, press "Play" on Winamp. When you wanna listen to the sfx and music in a computer game, press "Stop", on music, thus ceasing any phonic activity in that program, and start the game you wish to play.

That way, you will only hear the music and sfx in the game, and not in Winamp.


Does that help?

All I want is to disable the sharing of the sound card. It was like that before I have formatted my computer, but now I've re-installed Windows and sharing is enabled.

What about full-duplex, in device manager. I can't remember exactly what it does so try it! There's probably a registry hack somewheres...

My friend told me something about it going through a DLL, so you need to make it go directly through the sound card.

I remember now, it's when you can use the mic and listen at the same time. Used for voice modems usually. Forget it, it isn't the one you want

generally having more than one wave output channel is considered a good thing (i'm certainly of this opinion) so I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't an easy option to revert back to only allowing one wave source. you might try reverting to an older driver set if you have them.

anyway, it's going to depend a lot on your soundcard

check out www.3dss.com for a good audio site

Wouldn't it depend on what sound card you are using?

I always thought it depended on your soundcard too. My old pc has a crappy onboard soundcard and can't play any other sound if WinAmp's playing (for example) but my new pc (with newer soundcard) can. And not like a feature you can dis/enable.
