    virtual soundcard???

    anyone know of any type of virtual soundcard or any other software that would allow me to send "ALL" of the audio (not mp3 streams) from one computer to another computer over the network?
    I would prefer the app to show up as a regular soundcard to windows with the output being sent to a client on another machine.

    I know this is possible as most remote desktop software has the option to transfer the audio from one machine to the other with the desktop, but i do not want to see the desktop of the other machine, i just want to hear any sound comeing from the machine.

    googled for a few hours trying to find something but the only things i found that were close to what sounded like what i wanted were for linux or unix or results for streaming music.

    any ideas are greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    i have vlc and it does what it says on the box, but... its a media player. Im looking for something that will allow "any" sound my computer makes to be sent over the network. I want to hear any sound that any program makes. My primary concern is not to stream music or audio files.

    Look closer.
    Open VLC. Go to File > Open Capture Device
    Under 'Video device name' select NONE
    After 'Audio device name,' refresh the list and select your sound card.
    Mess with the config if you wish. Then select Stream Output, click settings and set up your server.

    Only software that actually comes in a box has to think within it.

    The problem is that what you get at the soundcard is uncompressed WAV data, and that's a *lot* of data to send over the network. You're going to need to compress it, and you're going to need to account for dropped packets and/or network delays, which is essentially what streaming audio does.

    Theoritically, it should be possible to sample the audio out, compress it to MP3, and then feed that as input to icecast, at which point you could use any streaming media player for playback.

    well ill be damned, thats perfect. I auto assumed the capture device was ment just for video devices my old school video roots showing.
    Ive been looking for a solution to this for a while now, all along its right on my desktop

    thanks!!!!
