There may be features in AnyDesk or other alternatives I'm not aware of...

A guaranteed workaround for dealing with any app that wants you to select an audio device (and maybe further assumes said device only has two channels) is to use a virtual audio device.

Soundflower and Loopback are two examples.

1. Make an aggregate device of your main audio interface + Soundflower
2. Select the aggregate device in Reaper instead of the audio interface by itself.
3. Route your Reaper output to the Soundflower channels.
4. Select Soundflower as the audio source in AnyDesk.

Note, it's standard to use your OS audio utility to create aggregate devices, not the DAW app. (Audio MIDI Setup in OSX, ASIO in Windows)

I've noticed some of these streaming apps (cough, OBS, cough) don't let you select the channels from the audio device you wish to use but instead assume a 2 channel device. You can only select channels 1/2. The above is a workaround for that as well.
