There are many different ways a media file can be played on a typical Windows PC. We can play audio or video files using a media player application like VLC Media Player or Windows Media Player. We can play music through audio file players such as 1by1, XMPlay and Foobar. Then we have online video and audio streaming available through any standard web browser – this is why media can also be played in various browser tabs.
Because of so many sources of music or audio being played on a Windows PC, sometimes we become confused as to from where a certain sound is coming. We have to switch between various application, apps and browsers in order to find the source of the sound and stop/pause it. We can use a free application called MediaFlyout for easily handling the situations like this.
MediaFlyout is really useful extension for the Windows computers that allows you to conveniently control the media being played directly from the system tray. No matter what the source of the media being played is, it all can be controlled from MediaFlyout.
MediaFlyout is extremely easy-to-use application. It has an interesting user interface that will allow us to follow all media source playback from their computer. The program displays all media sources, regardless of whether it is a browser tab, an app or an installed software.
In the MediaFlyout, we can very quickly stop or pause the playing sound or simply resume it. It stays hidden when there is no sound is being played by any of the sources. Similarly, it automatically hides in the system tray when we are not playing any music.
MediaFlyout can be tried without installation by simply launching it from the dist folder. There are installation batch scripts available for installing it for the current user only or for all the Windows users.
