We have a client who cannot listen to audio files we are compressing with winLame using the LAME mp3 encoding. Anyone have any idea what is happening here?
Try this for Vista or W7
1) Go to Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Manage Audio Devices.
2) Find your speakers in the list shown, and first make sure they have a green tick to indicate that they are the default speakers - if not, set them as default.
3) Click on the speakers to highlight them then click Properties.
4) Go to the Advanced tab, and at the bottom of this page are some checkboxes - one says "Allow Applications to have Exclusive Control" -- if this is on, then that's the problem. Turn the check OFF and click Apply.
