No sound to headphones on streaming audio, other than WMP

by Mettmann51 / March 19, 2007 2:49 PM PDT

I've a Sound Blaster Live! card in my pc with external pc speakers in line out and headphones in another. I get sound from both simultaneously with WMP 10, with speaker properties set to Wave device. I recently added Replay Music to the properties and that also seems to work in both sets.
My problem lies with other streaming audio found on other web pages. Audio received just fine in pc speakers, but none in headphones.
I've tried searching for settings throughout the system with no success.
I'm running XP SP2, if that matters.

Anyone with a suggestion?
