That I believe is possible.... I could be wrong. Alex Ryder or Shay would be the one that I know of as of now to answer this. I am sure other Modz Team members know as well, but those two names come to mind right away.  You can PM them this question.

See :) knew someone would have an answer. Shay is a very popular DJ and knows tons about the software / streaming / and all the elements that go into being a great DJ. 

 

@Shay Thanks for the feedback!

I used spotify for streaming audio to my room before and only the audio from spotify not any other PC sounds, this all assumes windows 10 is being used.

 

1) You need a virtual audio device that can be used as a input, for this case I use Virtual Audio Cable (VB-Cable)

2) You need broadcasting software, for this I use "butt", it just works

3) You need a place to broadcast to, there are multiple options for this, I personally use a icecast server (I host my own one on my pc since I just use it for friends)

 

Then what you do is this

1) Start playing your audio, then open "sound settings", go down to "app volume and device preferences", you then set "output" to your virtual audio cable, eg for spotify.

2) On your broadcast software select input as the virtual audio cable

3) Broadcast

 

You will only hear what you are playing through 3dx but thats how I do it.

 

Edit: You can  use other third party programs (I think audio router is one) to do this but they dont work as nicely

Hey Sirrin, 

 

     How do you manage to hear your own stream though? I'm using this same method and it seems to be playing, but I can't hear it due to the fact that the default device is the virtual cable. I've tried setting it to output for the default device, but no dice. Any suggestions?

Not sure if this is useful or not, or if you all already know this but you can now use spotify to play music in the rooms, not sure how long you've been able to but I've done it since summer. Ohh, and silly me I just saw that Sirrin posted how to. I can add my quick little guide as wellStreaming_Spotify.txt
