Hopefully this will save time for someone else...
Turns out all 5 of my machines don't have this ability in the (Dell)
Integrated Audio, or at least the Windows drivers can't make use of
it. I have Win7 (64bit) and XPSP3 machines. In most cases I have
"SIGMATEL STAC 92XX C-Major HD Audio". If the HW actually has a mixer,
I should be able to find out next time I boot FreeBSD or Fedora on one
of these boxes.
In work (yet another Dell), I was able to enable "stereo mix" and
anything I play with VLC, WMP etc. can be used by Edcast Standalone for
Now the question is do I want a PCIe or just PCI sound card? Win7 64bit
support a must. This assumes I have a free slot <g>
Thanks to everyone for all your help getting started.
