Hopefully a quick one but I don't think it will be :(
I have a piece of software which is a data logger and plays sounds when users have been inactive for a period of time etc... The software also plays a type of audio file upon a user request. The issue is I need the sounds to be played out of the device all the time except when the user wants to play a specific file at which point I need it to come out of the head phone socket, lead is in and goes to some external speakers.
Is this possible in vb.net or is it a hardware issue I need to contact sound card manufacturer about? I was hoping to avoid plugging in the aux cable everytime the user wants to play over external speakers. The only thing I was thinking that might solve it was if there was a way in vb.net to override the detection that there is a cable in the headphone port?
