I was wonering how can i use Foobar as the player for my audio and lets say PotPlayer as my player for video but have the seekbar in both respectively cooperate?

For those wonderng here is my software setup:

PotPlayer > LAV Splitter (Source) > LAV Audio/Video > ffdshow RAW > MadVR > ReClock > SVP (SmoothVideo Project).

The reason why I want this complicated setup is simply for the ASIO output. I played just one .MKV file in foobar and the audio portion works. Unless you guys have another suggestion that enables me to use ASIO output within PotPlayer.

Why do you need ASIO/WASAPI audio output?

It's only audiophile if it's inconvenient.

Judging by your signature... very funny. I wouldn't consider myself an audiophile since i don't even have the expensive setup, but I do have the conscious mind to judge.

ASIO output keeps a good level of volume of all channel/matrix. With ASIO output i'm able to really hear the Rear & Center (top/bottom) a "LOT" more because it makes it more audible but not necessarily degrading quality (I don't hear it that way unlike EQ's). The sounds with ASIO output is richer and deeper=more life.

With the ASIO plugin for Foobar i'm able to choose what channels go where. So in my case i'm running a stereo setup and I send all left (surround) and right (surround) to left/right respectively. If you notice there are left and right in the (supposedly) Center and Top Center, in that case I have:
Top Center=Left (because I hear better with my right I decided the louder goes to the left)

My hardware setup:

Computer > Soundcard > Reciever > Speakers (left/right) [stereo]

For those who have replied to this thread, perhaps haven't had the chance to consider listening through ASIO output?
