Multistreaming Playback for IDT* Audio
Multistreaming allows you to listen to two different audio sources on two different speaker sets.
For example, you can listen to one audio source through the back panel speakers and a second
audio source through front panel headphones or speakers.
Check the Audio Subsystem section of the Product Guide or Technical Product Specification
(TPS) to see if your Intel® Desktop Board supports multistreaming.
This document provides an example of how to set up multistreaming playback with two audio
sources: Windows Media Player* and Winamp*. If you are using different audio software, look for
similar settings that allow you to select front or back panel audio devices.
Updates to the IDT audio drivers may include changes to the user interface, therefore the steps
and screenshots shown here may not exactly match what you see on your system.
Configuration Steps for Multistreaming Playback
1. Open the IDT Audio Control Panel.
2. Go to the Advanced menu. Verify that Multi-streaming is enabled (green light).
3. Open Windows Media Player* and click Tools > Options. Go to Devices tab. Select
Speakers and click the Properties button.
4. Select the playback location for Windows Media Player:
 For playback to back panel audio, choose DirectSound: IDT Audio1
 For playback to front panel audio, choose DirectSound: IDT Audio2
5. Click OK and close all Windows Media Player properties.
6. Open Winamp. Click Options > Preferences.
7. Click Output (under Plug-ins). Select Nullsoft DirectSound Output and click the Configure
button.
8. On the Device tab, select your playback location for Winamp:
 For playback to back panel audio, choose IDT Audio1
 For playback to front panel audio, choose IDT Audio2
Do not choose the same playback location as you did for Windows Media Player.
Windows Media Player and Winamp should now playback to separate speaker sets, front and
back.
