What is Audio Output Selector?
"Audio Output Selector" is a versatile Firefox extension that allows users to change the audio output device of HTML audio and video elements on the go. Ideal for those with multiple audio devices, this extension creates flexibility and ease when switching between devices, like a TV or headset. It employs the innovative Audio Output Devices API and requires enabling through about:config settings in Firefox. It currently supports updating existing elements on the page when it's run and aims to add functionality for new elements in future updates. Open source, community-supported, and actively developed.

Summary

Allows you to change the audio output device of <audio> and <video> elements.

Do you have multiple audio output devices? Do you like to switch between using your TV and your headset? The aim with this extension is to not only make this process easier, but more flexible. Now you can have Twitch open in one tab, playing on your speakers, and YouTube in another, playing to your headset.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: This add-on makes use of an experimental feature called "The Audio Output Devices API" . This feature is disabled by default. Please enable it by setting media.setsinkid.enabled to true in about:config.

I 💜 open-source! Check out the GitHub? Want to support? Send me a tip!

NOTE: Currently the extension only updates elements on the page when it is run. This means new elements will not use the selected audio device without rerunning the script. This is a problem for social media sites, such as Twitter and Reddit. I'll look into supporting this behaviour in future.

Doesn't work 100% of the time, but is still extremely useful and very appreciated. One of those "why isn't that just built in?" type of things.
