Can I have iTunes playing on my justin.tv stream and still listen to music on the browser without the stream picking up my browser audio? I'm on a Mac mini.
I use Camtwist and Flash Media Encoder to stream on Justin.tv from my Mac mini. I want to just play music from my iTunes and I just want Flash Media Encoder to pick up the iTunes music. I watch and do a lot of things online that involve me having audio running. I am wondering if there is a way to just have Flash Media Encoder pick up what iTunes is playing and nothing else. Again, I am on a Mac mini and I use Camtwist and Flash Media Encoder!

Since those services use audio inputs and cant grab audio directly from an application, you will need an additional soundcard to stream music while have different audio for you.
you can use a USB soundcard for that. Just check if itunes or any other media player that you would like to use, can allow you to select a different audio output.
Then for the stream service, check if it can record from the what u hear of the USB soundcard and it will have a completely separate audio source.
Windows XP generally works well for this and windows 7 will generally require you to use stereo line in cables to get the same effect (since Microsoft uses a significantly less functional HAL as compared to windows XP)
I am not sure how this will work on the mac OS
(for my PC, I currently use 4 sound cards)

Audio routing is the key... I know that some PCs are capable of routing audio but I'm not sure if it's the same on a Mac. Maybe there's an application which can route audio or an external sound card.
