    Capturing output of sound card

    Hi all,

    I am trying to write a program in C++ to record whatever being sent to output of my sound card. For that, I need some mean to capture the signal on output line of my sound card. Does anybody know how I can get that?

    Any help would be greatly appreciate.

    Thanks,
    Peyman

    What platform are you writing your program for?

    From an initial guess, you probably need sound driver development related tools in the Windows DDK.

    Are you aware that bypassing copyright protections (which includes the DRM system of Vista) is illegal in many countries? Because that is what you are doing, right?

    Anyway, Vista was explicitly designed to not let you do that. The solution to your problem is called "tape recorder".

    Vista, which claims to be multi-media savvy, will barely let you play audio and when it does it's quality is far inferior to XP. The sound acceleration layer has been completely removed from Vista. Bonehead move? For sure. But just one of many.
