Well, I did find a solution that seems to be working. My concern was not being able to play .mkv files and some other different codecs that aren't supported by Windows Media Player stock or whatever because I wasn't seeing any options for selecting audio output device in VLC. However I found a codec that allows me to play .mkv files with Windows Media Player which was good because through options (in Media Player) I can go to devices than speakers and choose what I want the player to use. So I went ahead and picked the HDMI and it works just like I wanted it to. Everything other than the movie playing on the media player is coming through my normal computer speakers.
I guess one more question I might have is there a way to make profiles in Windows Media Player? So that I can easily switch between watching a movie on my TV via the HDMI sound or if I just decide to watch a video on my computer and want it to come through my computer speakers. Or will I just have to physically go into it and change it back and forth? I mean its not like its a really big hassle just would be nice to be able to switch back and forth simply.
