    Sony External bluetooth speaker not playing sound


    So, i got a speaker Sony rdp-x200ipn.

    I have an Acer Aspire E17

    I can connect my speaker to my laptop via bluetooth fine, when it's connected i can test the speaker and it makes the beep sound. When i start itunes, my speaker plays the sound fine, but when i search for example a youtube video I hear NO sound. When I turn of my speakers the sound is fine and plays from my computer and when I turn it on again no sound.

    Can anyone help me?

    Two possibilities. (1) The "Stereo Mix" is not set as the default recording device. (2) The Bluetooth is not set as the default playback device.

    It is set as my standard in my volume mixer, as it plays music from my itunes just fine. What do you mean by the second one?

    When you use Bluetooth, that should be set as the default audio playback device.
