Audio output devices with the same name may not work

If you have multiple devices with the same name in the dropdown under Settings -> Audio Outputs
the correct device may not be able to be selected.
To solve this, give each of the devices a unique name in Windows as per the steps below:
1. Right click the speaker icon in Windows (bottom right hand corner) and go to Open sound settings.
2. At the right hand list near Related Settings click Sound Control Panel
3. Under Playback find the device you wish to use and click Properties
4. Change the name to something unique to help identify it and click OK.
5. Restart vMix. The new name should appear allowing you to select it without causing conflicts with the other options.
