The case of the default audio device from the future

Hover the mouse over each picture (xkcd-style) in turn to get the text that tells the story.

An amusing behavior of Windows Vista recently came to my attention... sometimes the Sound control panel wants to go back... to the future!



So far, so good.



D'oh! Luckily, there's a way to recover...



Voilà tout.

  • Good job.

    Only thing missing is the background spooky music. ;-)

    btw, 5.1 Audio has been my only nightmare on Vista.

  • Is there an api to change the default play back audio device. Thanks

  • No, but individual apps can play to a device of their own choosing rather than using the default.

    Only the user can change the default device, via the Sound control panel.
