Description from extension meta

Pick a default audio output device. Only works for HTML5 <video/> and <audio/> elements served via HTTP(S).

Image from store AudioPick
Description from store AudioPick allows to pick a default audio output device that is used whenever chrome is playing HTML5 audio or video over HTTP(S). Using a browser_action Popup the default device can be temporarily overwritten on a per tab basis. Since version 0.1.4 AudioPick also finds Media Elements in sub frames. Since version 0.2.0 the extension no longer calls "getUserMedia()" in order to get access to the "sinkId" of Media Elements found by the content script(s), but writes directly to "contentSettings['microphone']". AudioPick only searches for elements within the document tree, e. g. an audio node created by calling "new Audio(...)" that is never inserted into the tree isn't found.

  • (2021-09-09) Mateus Stefens: Não funciona
  • (2021-09-08) Jerther: Changing device did nothing at first but then I followed the microphone trick explained in this comment and now it works: https://github.com/rain-fighters/AudioPick/issues/36#issuecomment-632015099 Chrome 93.0.4577.63 Fedora Linux 34 (Wayland)
  • (2021-08-24) Kyle Guay: Great extension. Although upon installation it was not working properly. I was able to resolve this issue by: 1. Ensuring the AudioPick's site access permissions are set to "on all sites". 2. Then click the lock next to the websites URL and change microphone access to allow. If after doing all of this the extension still is not working properly: 3. Check your operating systems advanced sound options and make sure google chrome's output device is set to Default. It seems if you have google chrome assigned to a specific device via windows the OS will overwrite it and still play audio through the OS assigned device. I hope this helps anyone having issues with this extension.
  • (2021-08-13) Максим З: Good, awesome, almost perfect! It will be nice: implement inheritance of the custom output to another tabs opened from the customed
  • (2021-07-23) Aleksey Bardushko: Отличное приложение. Работает.
  • (2021-07-02) Wesley Hendrix: it didnt work for me i select my output and it goes back to the default one
  • (2021-06-26) atraxion invitado: english: dosent work anymore spanish: ya no funciona
  • (2021-06-24) Steven D'Hondt: Works just fine, just need to hit the 'lock icon' next to your URL and allow your microphone for some reason...
  • (2021-06-13) RRDHghfhfh: не работает
  • (2021-06-12) Mikael Lennholm Berg: Does not work at all. macOS 10.13.6, Chrome 91
  • (2021-05-29) Nori Nori: I think it worked for some people, but as of May 29, 2021, it didn't work for me. As I select another device in the options displayed, the sound maintains as the default option I'm currently using.
  • (2021-05-25) Luan Henrique Sacer: O meu funcionou, muito top esta extensão, caso o seu não funcione, ative no cadeado, próximo ao símbolo de atualização do site, próximo a barra de digitar (site), no canto superior da tela a esquerda, permita a ativação do microfone, no meu funcionou perfeitamente!!!
  • (2021-05-24) Czarina: Hello! As of May 24, 2021, I installed this extension. At first, it didn't worked so I uninstalled it immediately but I found a solution. Go to your chrome's settings > privacy and security > site settings and click on the site you want to modify the audio output, let's say youtube for example. After that, you'll see a lot of permissions listed, scroll down and look for Sound change Automatic(default) to Allow. After that, refresh youtube and you can finally use AudioPick. I am currently playing a youtube video and I was able to play the audio to my TV and second monitor, both connected to my laptop. The audio for each youtube video tabs are independent as well. If I'm playing the first youtube video's audio to my TV, the second youtube video's audio will play automatically to my laptop since it's the default device until I choose to play it somewhere else with AudioPick. I hope this will help because this extension is helping me today. Thank you so much for the developer! Being a developer is not easy.. Thank you!
  • (2021-05-15) Kyle: Doesn't work when trying to get audio through hdmi to a TV.
  • (2021-05-14) Jeff Schulz: Absolutely Fantastic! Must have if you use any interfaces to route audio. Works perfectly and is super quick.
  • (2021-05-11) Lee John Moore: I had high hopes for this extension but after much tinkering around I gave up. It just won't work for me. Oh well. This kind of functionality should really be built into modern-day browsers given the increasing focus on web apps.

  • (2021-01-04) Dimas Ahmad Eka Putra: It works, but need some configurations first: https://github.com/rain-fighters/AudioPick/issues/36#issuecomment-632015099 Edit: I would suggest you to use "AudioXout" instead because this extension has been abandoned for several years. Don't forget to follow the configuration step above for that extension to work properly.

  • (2020-10-28) Daimon Blackstar: Complete trash! I have about 17 extensions in chrome and had for a long time a weird lag after previewing multiple video thumbnails. After 10 or 12 times hovering over different thumbnails, the window would become completely unresponsive. I thought it was my pc. I then thought it was the amount of extensions I had. And then I disabled each one and the problem was resolved. After re-enabling only 1 at a time, I found that this extension was causing the whole problem. I do not know why and I do not care, but it is unreasonable that an audio picker extension would cause such a thing (I could maybe understand from an adblocker with a lot of filters). It also rarely works nowadays. Absolute trash! Also, I have had this problem and learnt to live with it (because of lack of time to solve it) for more than 1.5 year. So...no it is not a new issue.
  • (2020-10-26) Marko Tuominen: The settings where audio devices should be listed shows only a single radio button without any label. No audio device can be selected, the extension does nothing, and is completely useless.

  • (2020-05-02, v:0.2.2) Killer-931: Not working Correctly
    Hello! I am a long time user of this Extension. Been using it for about a year and a half I think, so I am very invested in it's continued working state. So the issue is that it doesn't change the audio output from any site, it simply doesn't work. And going into the options you cannot pick a Default Audio Device as it comes up with a blank slot. Please, fix the Extension, I absolutely love it as it makes using multiple virtual audio cables very viable. Thank you and have a good day.

  • (2020-04-24, v:0.2.2) Vitor Toyonaga: Not working!

  • (2020-04-24, v:0.2.2) Jason Worthing: Audiopick not Working
    This problem seems to be twofold. 1) Audiopick does not show any device options when I rightclick->options, it only shows a single blank option with a tick box that does nothing. Left clicking the browser icon brings up the menu like normal, with all my audio devices, it's just the options menu that doesn't show it. 2) The browser icon menu (left click) straight up doesn't work. I can change the option with the tick mark, but it won't actually change the output audio device. Can't figure out what I need to do to fix it. I've tried reinstalling the exension and restarting my computer, but with no success.
  • (2020-04-22, v:0.2.2) tesfa wadawd: How to disable this extension on certain websites, or only have it run on certain ones.
    AudioPick is causing trouble with 4chan X(another extension) even though i have audiopick set on chrome settings to only run on certain websites(youtube) it still does it stuff on the background, thus making my browser completely lag out after i open 5-6 webm's in 4chan. I was wondering if there is a way to hardblock it from completely doing anything in certain websites or only make it run on specified websites.
