Minor Audio Output Problems

Postby Counselor_B » February 9th, 2015, 5:13 pm

I'm trying to watch .mp4 videos and listen to audio on my web browser through my main outs on my audio interface/monitors but it keeps playing through the default core audio in the mac. When I play audio files through jriver or use my midi keyboard controller though it works and sound will play through the main outs... How do I get audio generated from a web browser/videos to do the same instead of playing through the default computer?

I've tried locating output playback in the browser (doesn't exist) as well as selecting my outboard gear in midi setup and in sound preferences in the mac preferences.... :thinking:

Just throwing in that that's a rough one. I set the output on my Mac to my interface and everything comes out there.

Have you tried removing and re-installing the drivers.

I had a similar issue once, although on PC, and that seemed to clear it up for me.
Not sure what could cause the problem though.

You mentioned that you tried to fix it with your system preferences. Have you gone to the Audio/Midi Setup app in the Utilities folder yet? Try setting it up in there and see what happens.
