Issue with foobar WASAPI playback

  1. ls13coco
    So I've been using foobar for some time, using WASAPI event generally throughout my usage.
    Now, I don't know if it's something I unknowingly did, but this past week I have noticed that playback gives priority to anything but foobar.
    For example, I'll be browsing any old web page or Steam and if a video is simply loading, my music will stop.
    Generally foobar would have priority and I'd have to press stop to let another application produce audio.

    Looking for a fix, thanks!

    If you're using Windows, right-click the speaker icon, then click your DAC, Properties, Advanced, and check to make sure the exclusive mode options are ticked. If the problem persists, let me know.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have both exclusive options checked, so the issue has been with exclusive mode options on.
    I believe it was after the curators update for win 10, but I can't say that the update is the reason.

    Yeah, I have no idea what could be causing it, but here are a few other things you can try next.

    Use ASIO instead of WASAPI if your DAC supports it.

    Reinstall the drivers for your DAC, sound card, etc.
