    Windows 8 2 Diff. Audio Outputs


    So i want to have a different output for 2 Programs. Problem: Both have not an option to change the audio device. One is: WiMP. Second is: World of Tanks. I want my Game to go to my Speakers (example) and my Music to my Headset (example). Though, none can be configured. So i looked up a bit, and found ALOT of programs that can do this. Though: None work for Windows 8. I found for example: Virtual Audio Cable or some others. None works for Windows 8. If you know a program that can assign Audio to a special Output for Windows 8, please tell me. Thanks

    Windows will only allow one default sound device. I don't think you can do what you want.

    Keep in mind this is a users helping users forum.

    I have not tried this myself as I do not have windows 8 on my desktop, only on my laptop.

    But heres a quote and link to a possible resolution..

    The ONLY way this can be accomplished from within Windows is if one of the programs you are using allows you to select a non-default sound output.

    For instance, for 99% of what I do, I use my default output device to output sound to my TV. For music, I have Winamp configured to output to my G35 headset instead. In this case, I can have two output streams at the same time.
