DVR Bypass

Some platforms have a DVR function that allows the gamer to record his gameplay and publish it. This raises a few legal issues regarding the copyrighted music that might be part of the game audio, or user-replaceable music. While the game studio have the rights to use the music in their game, the end-user doesn't have the rights to distribute it in any form. Thus the platform requirements usually state that user background music should not be recorded. This virtual Audio Device allows a separate mix that is not sent to the DVR, but mixed in the main output afterwards. It is supported on the following platforms:
