A few previous posts have touched on how to get peak meter readings on the device, and per-app
Source and binaries attached.
Hey. I uses this code for my delphi appication and have one problem. For speakers i can get peaks values in any moment. For stereo mix i cant. This device must be active (active recording or just open audio settings in Widnows). How to get values for this device in any moment?
If a device has hardware peak metering, then the meter value is always accurate. There is a convenience method IAudioMeterInformation::QueryHardwareSupport which will tell you.
If there are no active streams on a device without hardware peak metering, the meter value is always 0. For playback devices this is correct! But for recording devices this is a pain.
thank You for answer
