Windows 7 provides a function that allows to control the volumesettings of active programs individually. it's no big deal but not everybody knows about it not everybody knows how to do it. Maybe you could utilize this function and integrate a volume slider into eViacam click-settings?
Windows XP does not provide this functionality, as far as I know and therefore I believe this is a good idea, though I think that this would have to be realized in another way.

Discussion

  • As you already noticed, this is a Windows Vista/7 specific feature and so utilizing the mixer API will work only for these system. A better approach is to control the volume from inside eViacam. Unfortunately the API currently used (wxSound) lacks support for volume control. So, some research must be first carried out to improve/replace such API. Another approach would be allow to select among different sound files.
