Dorico video conflict

Oddly, when I use Dorico, I can’t watch the tutorials on YouTube. They show an error and no video. This is all the videos on youtube not just the tutorials. Once I stop using Dorico and reboot my OS it’s fine. YouTube videos work fine again.

What might be the cause?

Windows 10 (with creative update or whatever it’s called) OS is what I am using.


I assume you are using the generic ASIO drivers? In Dorico go to Edit > Device Setup, hit ‘Device Control Panel…’ and uncheck ‘Allow ASIO host application to take exclusive control of selected port configuration’. You might have to restart Dorico or reboot, then all should be well.

Thanks, worked!
