I am working on a capture device that sends ac3 data to a rendering device.
I was hoping this can be done using the "playback through this device"
option. But I found that this connects to the endpoint in shared mode and
sending ac3 requires exclusive mode. Is there anyway to gain exclusive
access to a rendering device from a kernel mode driver? I know how to
render audio in user mode using audioclient api. But is there something
similar for kernel mode? Any help would be appreciated!
