Virtual Audio Device

Table of Contents

The Virtual Audio Device can be used to route audio from mimoLive to other applications, such as external audio mixing, applying audio effects, and more. It can also be used to route audio into mimoLive from a YouTube video, a PowerPoint or Keynote presentation, or the web browser.

How does it work?

Think of it as a virtual audio cable. You can plug it into the audio output of one application and the audio input of another. The Virtual Audio Device then transmits the audio from one to the other.
