What is our stance on questions “Is there any software that can do X or can it be achieved natively with Windows"? Are they on-topic or off-topic? I don't know if that's regarded as a software recommendation question.
Example: How to create a virtual audio device and stream audio input with it
Is it possible to create another audio device and redirect only wanted input streams to it?
Here's my concrete problem:
I am broadcasting a game via XFire and it uses the Windows audio device to capture any audio I receive. As I am broadcasting, other users who watch the video stream are communicating with me over Skype, and they hear themselves back within the video stream and it is entirely logical since I am broadcasting the audio I hear.
What I want to do is create another audio device within Windows and redirect (pipe) ONLY the audio input from that game and not the input reveived from Skype. I would then tell XFire to use that newly created "virtual" audio device to broadcast and therefore my partners won't hear themselves back.
Is there any software that can do that or can it be achieved natively with Windows? (I am under Windows 7).
