... i just erased my question when i realized it can be resolved if there's a media player out there that can play silverlight and change the audio output (like vlc, but vlc doesn't support silverlight).  

 

anybody?

 

 

 

(edit:... my kid watches either youtube or netflix through monitors (speakers), i'd like to run everything else through my headphones, using the routing mixer program totalmix that comes with my rme babyface.   what would be really handy would be a browser that allows you to change the audio output of the different tabs, let alone the browser itself, which NONE do, after extensive research.  how hard is it.   ... or if flash or silverlight allowed different audio outputs.   it seems such a basic simple function that every other program ever created has built into it, except for browsers, which is probably the most used type of program in the world.)

That would take a ot of extra programming within the audio function of the browser and the plugin such as Silverlight and Flash. It is not feasible.

... the demand isn't there for the programming to be done, i realize and appreciate that, and i acknowledge it's a specific situation i need resolved.  

 

if there's a media player that allows for different audio outputs, that also supports silverlight, so i can plug in the netflix url, my issue is resolved, so i guess that's my question now, thanks!

No you cannot use silverlight outside the browser as it is a media plugin for enriched media sites like Netflix. There is no demand for it, because you would need the browser to keep track of which input is muted and the plugins would need to keep track of that as well so when you switch tabs it would need to remember your output selections. This would take a lot of coding and would cause the browser to be extremely slow.
