More on my ongoing saga with trying to find the best sound for my players while playing d&d over fantasy grounds.
After piggybacking on some folks using fantasy grounds who are much smarter than I am, I think I discovered a way to stream my desktop sounds (including syrinscape, sounds from my desktop and/or VLC or WMP, etc…) directly to an audio stream (output to a direct port ie. http://myipaddress:4040 or whatever port you want to use) such that the players can directly catch the stream by using VLC or Winamp or another media player that supports the http streaming standard. The quality seems better than using voice channels like discord, teamspeak, etc… and it seems pretty snappy (not a lot of lag).
I’ve still got to test this as I ran into an issue last night where I was able to get it all working, but my voice was getting transmitted as well and I don’t want that as the players and I will speak over discord. I just want all of my other desktop sounds going to a direct audio stream. After some tweaking with voicemeeter banana settings, VLC and OBS (brain damage!) I think I have it set so that the stream (twitch) will hear my voice fine but the players will only hear my voice in discord and not duplicated through the audio stream.
If I test it tonight and it works well I’ll put together a youtube video and post it for anyone who is interested. My fingers are crossed!
