Emulator Issues #5976
Add ability to choose audio output device.
Sorry if this is the incorrect means on how to make a request but I was told to do so here from an admin.
Basically I would like to see an audio out option for spdif.

This would be useful to choose the device dolphin outputs to (if you don't want it using the default windows device), but I would word this issue differently because reversely if mthe default device was already SPDIF and you wanted dolphin to output from "Speakers" then you'd just need an option to set any of the devices listed.

Wow, amazing you guys knew exactly what I meant. It took a page on the forums to get the understanding down. Yes I agree the wording is much better. I assume this would only be an option for OpenAL but may be best to keep it global to all sound backends if possible.

Yes the OS is responsible for the default audio device most of the time this is a great thing.
But when you have a TV-Out via HDMI you want some audio to go to that and some audio to remain going through your speakers.
IF everything uses the default audio device, EVERYTHING goes through it, so if I set the default audio device to my tv which I must do to play it via my TV I cannot do anything else. I can't put a youtube video on and listen to it and play, which I could potentially do if I could set the audio device inside dolphin.
Here's an example of an app that allows you to choose the audio device, media player classic/potplayer/vlc, all of these allow you to do it, which is awesome. They allow me to have the TV dedicated entirely to playing media and I can still run other things on my PC with audio coming out of the speakers.
Finally, it would make Dolphin a little less of a pain to set up, as right now its yet another thing I have to do in advance before I run the thing.
