[request] Quick-switch Audio output

  • Sidebar toggle for switching between 2 user selected audio output options.

    I often use my headphones as my sole audio output on my pc, but there are multiple instances i use my tv/monitor as my audio output.

    Rather Im,

    • tired of wearing headphones

    • i am not seated at the pc and do not wish to use/do not own wireless headphones

    • Chose to lay in bed(as my larger monitor can be rotated to bed viewing) to watch movie/walk-through, etc.

    • Showing a friend/visitor a video/new song

    • Want to listen to video/music as i do house chores

    Switching audio output is not a hard task outside of this presented option, but it switches the entire pc output. Which with some games like say ARK: Survival Evolved, will cause a crash rather intimidate or later it the game is open when output is changed. Adding to that, making the output chance related to only opera gx sources would be nice to avoid restarting games.

    I think this option, though coding and debugging anything is not easy, would be a lightweight addition to GX, and could also gauge interest into a mic quick-switch option as well for say people that like using headsets and base stand mics, though mic input seems more application specific.

  • @vrodo Windows 10 allows you to change the output audio device of a specific program.
