    Did some searching and cannot find anything on this....

    When I connect my Bluetooth headset (use as audio device) all the audio comes through it (music, computer sounds, etc). Is it possible to set it up so I can just have one application go through my bluetooth headset (like google voice, via chrome), and have my music, other audio play though my iMac speakers?

    Any direction would be great! Thanks!

    Instead of starting my own thread, I decided to just bump this as it is the only post on it...

    I was wondering if I could play music through bluetooth to a bluetooth speaker, as well as play music from the same device through audio out.

    what i am essentially trying to do is play music through my computer speakers and at the same time play music through like a bluetooth speaker set.

    thanks all.

    Since only one playback driver is used in the current configuration and since each driver sends audio only to a particular device, sending audio to two different devices simultaneously can't be realized unless a driver sending audio simultaneously to more than one device is written.
