I don't understand why you wrote a new frontend for remote output 
instead of a VRDE module which would plug into VBoxHeadless, achieving 
the same result with I assume far less effort and the support for 
playing audio where the remote client is running.

The VirtualBox sources contain the VNC module as a sample (can't refer 
to the VRDP module as that's closed source). VRDE module can be 
distributed separately in the form of an extension pack...

This means you configured the VM to play audio locally. Just don't do 
that, tell it to use AudioDriverType_Null.

If you'd use the VRDE module approach then it would still get the audio 
input/output data.

The last request is contradicting the general tune, the host is where 
the VM is running (not where the video output is shown). Ignoring this line.
