Recording device names

Nov 11, 2009 at 10:41 AM

Is there a way to get the list of device full names?  I saw the RecordingForm app getting the list of device names but the "FriendlyName" property doesn't have the complete name that I want.  For example, in the following image, the "Line-in" device has extra into (on the second line): "Creative SB X-Fi".  Is there a way for me to get this extra device name info as well?  The FriendlyName property in this case only return the first line ("Line-In").

I haven't look that mutch in to NAudio, but heere's an article that shows how to do it. Maybe you can find the same part in NAudio.

yes, this is a limitation of the WaveIn APIs, it seems DirectSound has a better way of getting device names
