Mute Skype while keeping all other sounds

by Boberg » Aug 09, 2012


I wonder if there is any way to mute skype, while keeping all other sounds in X-Split? The reason is because I want to be able to speak with my co-commentator during streaming sessions, but only play music for the viewers.

So, is there any way to mute skype WHILE streaming, and then unmute it again?

Thanks in advance.

Right now, XSplit can't do that. You can use another program to do something similar to that though.

There are a bunch of tutorials about doing that available in our Tutorials subforum; here's one of them (just replace TS3 with Skype).
