You know how in W7 you have an option to check off "Listen to Device" when looking at microphone properties, and by doing so it plays the sound directly through your desktop speakers?
Well, my question is, how does one accomplish this in Windows XP?
I have a webcam setup but I would like to listen to the sound directly. Preferably without having to run any software.
I can tell you my purpose if it helps:
I am using a webcam as a baby monitor. I use Flash media Encoder and Justin.tv to stream it. The nursery is only a piece of plywood away from my computer so it goes right through.
Now, I can play both video and audio through the browser when playing the feed in the browser. But there is a delay.
So in Windows 7 all I need to do is play the sound directly through the speakers and that way I don't have the problem of the sound being delayed.
Considering the video at night is useless because it's dark, I'm not worried about that delay. And during the day we can hear things fine so we can look over to the computer and see what we heard. (quite funny really)
Anyway...like I said, I'm trying to play the sound of the microphone directly over the computer speakers.
Does anyone know how to accomplish this?
