Directing audio from chrome browser


Eastboy

Recommended Posts

Searched online for this problem and couldn't find an answer, so hoping somebody here can advise.

 

Basically I got my monitor and TV hooked up to my PC. I want to play a movie file on my TV via HDMI while I use my monitor with DVI.

I want to play a youtube video and have the audio from the youtube video go via the HDMI to the TV speakers.

But I want my PC speakers to play all other sounds like PC games etc.

 

Hope I explained clearly. Basically want to direct specific sounds from specific programs to specific outputs.

Thanks

Assuming you want to output different AV feeds simultaneously from your PC...AFAIK this isn't possible, sure you can hook everything up, but hardware limitations will force you to choose a single AV output at Windows level.

 

You could pick up a small throwaway PC box for cheap and use it to drive your secondary AV feed, you could control the box remotely from your main PC..so it could be hidden behind a couch or something, as you would never really need physical access to the box & it wouldn't need a keyboard/mouse.

 

Always handy to have a second pc for troubleshooting or backup.

Thanks mate . It's odd how you can direct video to different video outputs but they haven't thought to do the same with audio

Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but I don't think you can with video outputs either, you can only play 1x audio out & 1x video out at any given time...but you cant play 2x audio and 2x video at the same time from 1 pc afaik.

 

Hope that makes sense, not an easy subject to talk about clearly lol.

 

If you don't care about playing 2x audio outputs at the same time...then 2 sound cards would do what you're looking for.

 

So to be clear, wire one souncard to your TV and the other soundcard to your monitor...then switch between them using: control panel-->sound at Windows level.

 

Obviously you need a mobo with 2 soundcard slots or you might be able to use the integrated souncard on the mobo + 1 other souncard in the slot.

 

Do you know your pc spec?

Are you using Windows 7?

 

Right Click the sound icon in the tray

Then on the Playback look for your HDMI cable/TV

Click Set Default

 

You can't pick and choose which applications sounds go where without getting really advanced and using software such as Virtual Audio Cable and mixers but you can Set Default and switch between laptop and TV at will.

Yea I knew this topic had a high chance of being very confusing :)

 

I think I did find a solution though. I play my video in VLC on my TV. VNC has a setting where you can direct the audio output to the TV. 

My windows audio setting was set to PC speaker as default. I fired up a game on my monitor and the sound came through the PC speakers, while the video audio played through the TV speakers.

 

As I typed this I realized my R9 290 graphics card must have a audio processor, a Google search confirmed it so this must be why it works. So basically as you said you need 2 soundcards.

Thanks for the help

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
