    Default Winamp/Yahoo conflictions.

    Ok, I must be doing something wrong here. Whenever I hear people in voice chat and they get a message from someone, the sound can be heard from their Yahoo, but whenever I have Yahoo voice chat on, it's the ONLY thing I can hear.

    Yahoo and Winamp are two things I want to run alongside each other, but my winamp just tells me the output is already in use.. suggestions?

    It means Yahoo is hogging your output device to itself, and won't let anything else use it. Usually it only happens with MIDI devices though

    Can you change what device Yahoo uses for output, to DirectSound for example, since I that can't be hogged, if something else also wants to use DirectSound, it gets its own instance of that device

    Or change WinAmp's output, I think that can also be changed between DirectSound and WaveOut. DirectSound is better, it gives you better control of the sound output without affecting other programs

    I have the directsound output for Winamp, but it still won't play alongside voice chat. :/ It sounds pants anyway. xD I'll see if I can control Yahoo instead.
