Windows 7: Bluetooth speakers (UE Mini Boom) don't switch to new audio source

Bluetooth speakers (UE Mini Boom) don't switch to new audio source

I had to update my bluetooth drivers (Intel) before I could finally get sound to come out of my new UE Mini Boom speakers.

But I still have a problem. If I am watching a Youtube video in a web browser (doesn't seem to matter which) and then switch to a video in VLC or Win Media Player, the sound from the new source doesn't play on the speakers. I have to power the speaker off and then back on and then it will pick up the new audio.

When I had a USB speaker the source-audio switched without any problem. Are there any settings that I can update, or should I just accept that a bluetooth speaker was a terrible idea for Win7?

Youtube uses the Adobe Flash Player. VLC/WMP or whatever media player does not and thus different audio source. One thing to check, that may or may not make a difference, is if you have Stereo Mix set as the default recording device. This can affect sound playback. Stereo Mix is found in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound panel, Recording section.

Hi fireberd. Thank you for replying. Are you saying that Stereo Mix should or should not be the default recording device? Currently mine is completely disabled.

Normal operation is to have the Stereo Mix set as the Default Recording Device. Then whatever source is playing it will be heard on the PC speakers (or headset).
