A virtual sound card to dump an audio stream over the network (Windows)

Here is a driver named Scream for Windows rather original since once installed, it provides a virtual audio device capable of relaying all the sounds from your computer through a multicast PCM stream on your local network. Unicast is possible, but as an option.

It is therefore a transmission in UDP that you can recover with tools like VLC or the Scream clients provided. It is likely that with this operation, you will lose packets on the way, but it will allow you to broadcast sound a bit like an internet radio, to old devices or raspberry pi configured for the occasion for make a multiroom at home.

The address of the stream is 239.255.77.77:4010 and you can in the settings of the virtual device, modify the quality to lighten the transmission.
