Per-application Audio Device Switcher

Available in: Actual Window Manager, Actual Multiple Monitors.

The Per-application Audio Device Switcher facility allows to redirect the sound output in each sound-playing application individually to different audio hardware devices (if you have more than one of them installed in your PC). Most modern video cards have embedded audio hardware to support such combined video/audio output standards as HDMI or DisplayPort.

Now you can bind available audio devices (internal/external sound cards, HDMI/DisplayPort outputs, etc.) to certain monitors, so that any multimedia application being put on a monitor will automatically redirect its audio playback to the bound audio device.

Also, you can change the audio device used by a certain multimedia application in its specific window settings - either automatically (at startup) or manually (via title button, window menu item, or special window that can be invoked via tray icon's context menu command).

The feature is compatible with most popular types of multimedia applications that can play audio: web browsers (both HTML5 and Flash media content), media players, videogames.
Known issues:

  • some media players (VLC, Media Player Classic) are not compatible with this feature by default; to make them compatible, you must set the audio output to WaveOut in their preferences

  • not fully compatible media players: Windows Media Player 9 and higher

  • not fully compatible web browsers: Internet Explorer 8 and higher

  • not yet supported media players: iTunes, Foobar 2000

  • not yet supported web browsers: MS Edge
