Is there a balance control available? May be one you can create profiles with? And after starting the last profile used or a special one is enabled automatically?

Thank you Vasilich.


what is so bad in windows sound mixer with balance control that you want to have MP-own balance control?
It is just Windows (but that is not the most important point) and I do not know whether you can create profiles the kind I would like to use, you firstly would enable the special profile you want to use for each start of XBMC, would be very uncomfortable for me, instead of enabling it automatically by XBMC, when you want to change the balance you would have to leave XBMC to go to the soundmixer...and so on.

oh, i just checked - windows use balance settings per sound output, not per application. So - no built-in windows solution.
And i guess, that you are the first one who needs different balance settings for different application for same audio device, so chances are rather small that it will be implemented somewhen...
Just to understant your problem - why would it need to change balance for different applications? because e.g. when using XBMC you probably sit in the middle of the room, and using WMP you are sitting at your table somewhere in the room corner?

Yes, that is a good example. Well, there are just many occasions. When I listen e.g. to the music (with a player, e.g. foobar) I have at least two positions where I sit / am. Foobar has a balance control. And as there is different music with different audio balances (e.g. Radio Stations / streams), I can easily adjust it by using profiles or manually doing it quickly. When I watch a movie I sit in the best position regarding the TV, which might not be the best position to the speakers, so I would correct it (respectively must correct it with the mixer or a little app) by a balance control. When I e.g. have the TV running without watching a movie, so when watching another broadcasting and e.g. I am working sitting at my Notebook I would need the balance to be adjusted to this situation and so on.

    Would give you quick access to adjust the sound balance, you could set MP to minimize on exit so it doesn't close.

    Alternatively you could use autoit or autohotkey to create some hotkey combinations that adjust/set the balance to predefined levels.

    Many thanks for screen shot and link, kiwijunglist.


    Yes, that is the app I talked about, that one I use. You have to change to this app to set balance, so leave MP, open it, go back...

    Yes, but sometimes I need the CPU, RAM resources MP needs and even being not closed, I would adjust the balance for other programs, e.g. a player.

    Yes, may be that would be the only way to get a balance control for MP.

    Many thanks again.

    Yes, I know, I meant, each time I would exit it completely the balance settings were lost...no, sorry, forget this last sentence...

    What would be the advantage by doing that?

    @Brownard another logs of failed installations. I'll take a look into the user management. Edit: I can confirm user management is completey broken with NET4 and NET6 :( Neither an existing profile can be selected nor a new one can be created.
