Best Practices for PlayWav
I'm not using any interface viewers. I just want the most efficient way to play a Wav on my CQC machine.

Seems like PlayWav only works with IV, but not if the IV is in the background.

I tried installing the VLC driver, and it is not communicating, but I'm not sure about the port and IP settings, or if I need to do anything else. 

The latest workaround I could find was from 2013 and it involved installing the TrayMonitor, and using that to invoke VLC.

Is that still the best solution?

Thanks, Richard
If you don't have an IV on that machine, but CQC is installed, then install the CQC Speech II driver and use that. It will allow for speech from the background.

Thanks. I am guessing that won't play a Wav.
Oh, no, sorry. I was thinking TTS for some reason. What are you trying to play? Is it just an announcement? If so, you could just speak it, which would offer a lot more flexibility.

You're right. I'm using TTS and it's great. I just need a bit of fanfare. I'll jump through the TrayMonitor hoop if that's the way to go.
