How to change default audio device in VLC?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm using the newest VLC Media Player. How can I change the audio device from my headphones to speakers? I want it so that when I game, my Mumble and Game sounds would come through headphones and VLC playing music from my speakers. I looked around the settings but couldn't find anything. Hope you guys can help me out.

when you go into settings at the bottom where it says simple and all, click all and WHOLE bunch of stuff will show up. Expand "Audio" and it will show Filters, Output Modules, and etc. Click on Output Modules and it will open up with Direct X, File, and Waveout. You want to click on Direct X

From there you look on the right where it says Output Device with a drop menu select the one you want it to use and it should work.

I changed the output device to Speakers (pic: http://i2.aijaa.com/b/00852/9978928.jpg ) but it still plays the sound through my headset. I also tried changing the Audio output module to DirectX audio output from the default but it still didn't work. Also restarted VLC after each of these. Do you have any more ideas?

Actually it just works for just 1 song and when the playlist goes to the next song it just plays it through my headset again frown.gif

Who thought a small thing like this could be so complicated... Lemme know if you get it working.

Yup, still not working. I also tried looking for some 3rd party software but I don't like that idea because it would add some latency if I understood correctly.

Well I found you can do it with Windows Media Player. You can do it like this:

1. Open Windows Media Player
2. In the upper left corner, choose Organize and from there Options
3. Choose the tab Devices and then press Speakers and Properties
4. Select your Speakers as the device there and Apply + Ok and it should work fine

Works for me smile.gif
