System volume control

Post by Total-Image » 18 Dec 2015, 17:17

Instead of controlling the volume per ordinal with the Ventuz Volume Control node, I need a way to control the Windows system sound volume from within the Ventuz presentation. Beside the Ventuz Runtime we've another application with audio running in the background. So I need to control the system sound volume.
Any ideas?

Depending on the OS you are using - Windows 7,8,10? There seem to be a few options written in C# which should work in the Ventuz c# node. You may need to install a .dll specific to the system master control, but try googling for "control system volume in c#" for examples.
