I am assuming that you are wanting to create multiple WAVE devices within the 
same physical device (as opposed to just plugging a second device of the same 
type into a single computer).  

 

There are multiple places you need to specify the correct device name to get it 
to show a “custom” name:

 



 

This is also teams showing our two 8-channel devices.  On the play side the 
first device would always be “Speakers” if you want to support more than 
2-channels (and requires a topology driver).

 

Obviously it starts with creating multiple wave devices in CAdapter::Init by 
calling InstallSubdevice multiple times with the whatever internal device name 
you choose: “Wave1”, “Wave 2”… and so on.

 

In CWaveRTMiniport::GetDescription() return a custom FilterDescriptor for each 
device, where each of the gMiniportPins are using a custom GUID for each device 
name.

 

Same thing for CTopologyMiniport::GetDescription() return a custom 
FilterDescriptor for each device, where each of the gTopologyPins are using a 
custom GUID for each device name.

 

Follow the example INF file but just create multiple interfaces.

 

[MyDevice_Install.NTAMD64.Interfaces] 

AddInterface=%KSCATEGORY_AUDIO%,  "Wave1",            MyDevice.Interface.Wave1

AddInterface=%KSCATEGORY_RENDER%, "Wave1",            MyDevice.Interface.Wave1

AddInterface=%KSCATEGORY_CAPTURE%, "Wave1",            MyDevice.Interface.Wave1

AddInterface=%KSCATEGORY_AUDIO%,  "Wave2",            MyDevice.Interface.Wave2

AddInterface=%KSCATEGORY_RENDER%, "Wave2",            MyDevice.Interface.Wave2

AddInterface=%KSCATEGORY_CAPTURE%, "Wave2",            MyDevice.Interface.Wave2

 

[MyDevice.I.Wave1.AddReg]

HKR,,CLSID,,%Proxy.CLSID%

HKR,,FriendlyName,,%MyDevice1.Name%

 

[MyDevice.I.Wave2.AddReg]

HKR,,CLSID,,%Proxy.CLSID%

HKR,,FriendlyName,,%MyDevice2.Name%

 

[MyDevice.AddReg]

HKLM,%MediaCategories%\%MyDevice1.NameGuid%,Name,,%MyDevice1.Name%

HKLM,%MediaCategories%\%MyDevice2.NameGuid%,Name,,%MyDevice2.Name%

 

I have left out a few steps in the INF file, but hopefully those are obvious by 
looking at complete examples of other INF files.

 

Hopefully this helps.

 

Thank you,

David A. Hoatson

Driver

 

I am trying to use the friendly name in the popup to select the audio channel.
A picture will really help.  This is a picture from Microsoft Teams.

Where it says "Line (NDI Webcam Audio)", which is the name of the description:

HKR,Drivers\wave\wdmaud.drv,Description,,%NewTek_AudioPortClass_Multi.Description%
HKR,Drivers\mixer\wdmaud.drv,Description,,%NewTek_AudioPortClass_Multi.Description%

I need the channel selection text.
The goal is to have it say:

"NDI Webcam Audio 1"
"NDI Webcam Audio 2"
"NDI Webcam Audio 3"
"NDI Webcam Audio 4"

Can anyone direct me to an example of how to do this?
For our video driver, it uses the Friendly Name exactly as I need it.

The sample code I used is from 
Windows-driver-samples-master/audio/SimpleAudioSample.
I am not in control of the application we are running in, could be Skype, 
Teams, Google Hangout...

We have a video and audio software only drivers we use to send data from our 
main application to Skype, Teams, VLC, Zoom, Google Hangout.... ect.
 
We have channels set up so that the source from our application can be 
different.
Presently the channels can be from 0 to 3.  Set by a data item when you send 
the IOCTL.
 
The video driver has a FriendlyName section that works as expected.
In the applicatons the selection for the video will be Video #1 to Video #4, 
the FriendlyNames.
 
The desired affect in the application popups for the microphone is:
Audio #1, Audio #2, Audio #3, Audio #4.
 
This article indicates we can do the same thing for the audio.

What we see instead of the FriendlyNames, is the device name.
 
When we call InstallSubdevice() we are using sting constants, so we cannot be 
tripping the bug that it only remembers the address, reported on your forums.
static wchar_t* szNameWave[4]     = { L"Wave_0", L"Wave_1",
L"Wave_2",     L"Wave_3"     };
static wchar_t* szNameTopology[4] = { L"Topology_0", L"Topology_1", 
L"Topology_2", L"Topology_3" };
 
We have as expected, interface sections in the INF file that look like:
 
[NewTek_AudioPortClass.NT$ARCH$.Interfaces]
AddInterface=%KSCATEGORY_AUDIO%,%KSNAME_Wave0%,NewTek_AudioPortClass.AddInterfaceSection.Aud0
AddInterface=%KSCATEGORY_AUDIO%,%KSNAME_Wave1%,NewTek_AudioPortClass.AddInterfaceSection.Aud1
AddInterface=%KSCATEGORY_AUDIO%,%KSNAME_Wave2%,NewTek_AudioPortClass.AddInterfaceSection.Aud2
AddInterface=%KSCATEGORY_AUDIO%,%KSNAME_Wave3%,NewTek_AudioPortClass.AddInterfaceSection.Aud3
ect....
 
[NewTek_AudioPortClass.AddInterfaceSection.Aud0]
AddReg=NewTek_AudioPortClass.AddInterfaceSection.Aud0.AddReg
[NewTek_AudioPortClass.AddInterfaceSection.Aud0.AddReg]
HKR,,CLSID,,%Proxy.CLSID%
HKR,,FriendlyName,,%NewTek_AudioPortClass.Aud0.FriendlyName%
ect...
 
I have been looking at the DDK audio samples and they have FriendlyNames, but 
the device name seems to show up instead of them.
In the DDK SimpleAudioSample, it has a FriendlyName of "Simple Audio Sample 
Wave Microphone Array - Front", but what I see in the Zoom popup is "Virutal 
Audio Device (WDM) - Simple Audio Sample".
 
Can you point me to an audio example, where the FriendlyName is used when 
selecting the device?
Also is there another method that I can accomplish the same thing?
It appears I am missing something.
