    [Question] No audio through rift

    I am working on a VR project for the oculus rift, and while everything else works fine with the headset I cannot get audio to play through the rift by default. It works fine if I set the windows audio device to the rift speakers, but otherwise sound just plays through the default speakers.

    This is true whether the game is fully built or just run in editor. Am i just missing some obvious editor setting?

    Thanks for any help.

    Sounds like its working as intended? By default, your PC shouldnt be piping audio to the HMD unless Windows has the HMD set as the desired audio output device. If you leave Windows to 'default' audio device, it might not automatically trigger the change to HMD once it's worn. You could also check in the Oculus app, click 'Devices' and then click your HMD to make the right-hand window open, then find options labelled 'Hear VR audio from computer' and 'Hear computer audio in VR' and toggle/untoggle these as desired.

      Right, I understand that. But most oculus specific programs will automatically switch the default playback device to the rift when launched. I guess that's what I'm trying to replicate.
