Hi, I am making a DirectSound app, that basically just streams a wav file from the harddrive. So far so good except one thing, when my program loses focus, the sound stops playing. I know that if I set the Cooperation leve to DSSCL_NORMAL, it will mix all sound apps in the primary buffer so it will continue to play. This is what I want, however, the problem is that with this cooperation level is that it restricts you from setting the primary buffer sound format. It must stay the default at 8 bit samples. I am sure that most media apps do not accept this, so how do I get my program to still play in the background, but not be restricted to 8 bit samples? -Thanks
