Webpage with audio routing

pho's picture

Hi,

I've been using CoGe's Webkit to render flash pages, but I often need to route the audio to a device other than the built-in output.

I can't use Soundflower on this one given that the device I'm using outputs video with embeded audio and it's impossible to route anything into its input.

So, what's missing I think, is a device uid input on the plugin, much like the one that exists in Kineme Audio Player.

Thanks

CoGe's Webkit is presumably outputting to the default audio device (which is not necessarily the built-in output). You can change the default audio device: System Preferences > Sound > Output > "Select a device for sound output".

It didn't occur to me, the only problem now is that if I do what you say, I'll have all system sounds, including Finder's Quicklook routing through that device, and that doesn't work for me.

I actually tried having the Finder application's sounds routed through the built-in output and the rest of the system sounds routed through the desired device but I didn't succeed.

I think the only solution would be to set the audio device on the plug-in.

I see your point on that, but you do understand that all of the "Finder application's sounds" are "Sound Effects" that one controls in System Preferences, right?

I turn that stuff off almost first thing, on every install. There is nothing more obnoxious than hearing that stuff blast over my monitors.

Yes, I know that, I keep the system sounds off myself. What happens is that I'm trying to change the audio settings on shared machine where people often use Quick Look to preview video and audio files and I can't have those going through the video card, which is the other device.

Ahhh. For sure.

So, can anyone tell me if it's possible to add a Device UID input on CoGe's Webkit and if it is a lot of work?

Audio output for Flash is handled by the Adobe's Flash plugin, not by WebKit proper. So AFAIK there's no way to control this via WebKit. You'd have to configure Adobe's Flash plugin to use a specific audio output, but I don't think it exposes that parameter.

Smokris right on this. No way to define what output should WebKit and the Flash plugin use programaticaly.
