Output sound from different programs to different devices?

I am wondering if it is possible to output sounds from certain programs to one audio output, and sounds from other programs to another. More specifically, I am thinking of purchasing a new TV with a DVI input and connecting that to my computer, mostly to run VLC and watch movies/youtube on. I want the audio for that to come out of speakers connected to my sound card in the back of my PC. If my family wants to watch something, and I want to watch youtube in firefox or play a game on my PC, can I output all other sound to my USB headset (specifically logitech G35, if it is relevant)? How would I go about doing this?

Thanks a lot!
If the program supports selecting the sound output you can do it. Otherwise, it will use whatever the default sound device is. I don't know if VLC can do that.
