Choose audio output for video conferences (and potentially other tools?)
for ages, I was slightly annoyed by not being able to choose audio output for video conferencing in my browser favourite, Firefox. I think it is time to move this to more prominence as it is solved for ages and exists as experimental feature: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=934425 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1294381
Toggle"hidden" config parameter media.setsinkid.enabled to true (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Firefox/Experimental_features#apis) to enable it.
Could you find good places to share this? My impression is that this default is a huge UX disadvantage of firefox vs. chrome at the moment.

This is being held up by linking it with site permissions. This is the current bug listing all the work needed before they will change the default from false to true:
If you don't care what sites are allowed to detect your audio output devices, you can enable it now, as I suspect you have.
