Audio Switcher

Package test results are passing.

This package was approved by moderator digitaldrummerj on 12/7/2015.

Easily switch the default audio device, input or output, on any Windows PC (Vista and above).

Using this application you can switch output OR input sound devices at the click of a button, or the press of a key.

I designed this application to be incredibly small and lightweight. There is no bloat, it does exactly what it should, nothing more, nothing less.

Source code

To install Audio Switcher, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install audioswitcher --version

To upgrade Audio Switcher, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
