you need to get a program called "JackPilot"

this is from an old post but it will get you started.

[FONT=Verdana]1. Get JackPilotOS. Install. Turn it on.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]2a. System Options > Sound. Output tab > Set to Jack Router.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]2b. System Options > Sound. Input tab > Set to Line In. (You don't want your internal mic picking up sound.)[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]3. Ventrilo Setup > Sound Input - set to Jack Router.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]4. Ventrilo Setup > Sensitivity - set to 1. Turn Silence Time up to 10sec.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]5. Ventrilo Setup > Use Push to Talk. Turn off.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]6. Turn on iTunes. Start playing something.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]7. Log into Vent. Get into a private channel.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]8. Go back to JackPilot. Start it.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]9. Go to Routing in JackPilot. Try to set iTunes to out1 on the left side and Ventrilo to in1 on the right sidel.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]10. Bingo. Look for the vent to light up green. Log in with another vent to the channel to test.[/FONT]

(i'll install this on mine and verify those steps)

I tried your approach but in the ( Sound Panel > Output Tab ) there is no "Jack Router" option.

Is your approach compatible with OS X 10.6?

I was able to get your directions to work. However if I use two vent applications on one computer. One being the music bot, and the other being my actual voice communication how would I get that to work? Currently when I talk it mutes the music bot and changes the Vent from an input to an output and I have to go back to change it.


I am running two applications of vent. But on one computer. Not sure if that was clear or not.
