I am completely new to OSS and decided to try it out yesterday, and so far, everything works exceptional and I have no issues whatsoever.
First of all, let me tell you about my setup:
My computer have two soundcards, one is for the PC speakers and the other is for my TV-out.
The TV I'm using is (Of course) for watching movies and such, so the card hooked up to it is not the default card.
Therefore, I use mplayer because it lets me choose which output device to use, so I can make it use the output for the TV.
So far, so good. No issues at all.
So my question is: Can I somehow configure OSS to let me force any given application to use a certain output device?
I want to run a video game emulator on the TV, and this is where my problem is. The emulator uses the default card, so the sound comes from the PC speakers and not the TV. Also, the emulator can't be reconfigured. It just doesn't have that feature.
X.org lets me open any application on a certain screen with the $DISPLAY variable. Can something similar be done with OSS?
