Is there any way to mute a specific program? I want to be able to mute Firefox.

Here an answer from our friends over at SuperUser.

TL;DR: You can, but only with some extra software. They suggest AudioHijack Pro

    What does "TL;DR" ?

  • @jmlumpkin Really man? His comment wasn't that long, why don't you just tell him what it means? Now I'm curious as well...

    @JShoe I am confused. What's the 'really man' for? TL;DR literally is short for 'too long, didn't read'. In this case, the user answering was stating that 'instead of reading through the answers, the basic gist is to use AudioHijack Pro to mute a specific program'. This is a pretty common thing online to summarize.

    @jmlumpkin It was a joke. Like "Who's on first," I misinterpreted your response to mean that his question was "too long" and that, because of that, you "didn't read."

AudioHijack is the only software I've found that can route application sound. If you are looking to capture/block sound from Chrome/Chromium you are out of luck though. AHP cannot handle that software yet due to the way Chrome's processes are spawned on the fly.
