No New Posts Playing Audio on Different Kinds of Computers

This is the place to discuss how the computer or operating system you're using affects what you can play and how. This would be a great place to ask questions about WASAPI, or to discuss which versions of Linux actually support UAC2, and which ones work with the CM6631 chip we use on the XDA-2 and the DC-1.
