Is there any program where I can just one click to change audio output ( woudl be nice if woudl be running in tray)?
Fastest way for now - is just open pavucontrol, disable HDMI or integrated and enable second one.
I tried checking its sources, but looks like nightmare.

Thanks for replies
xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin - it has only button to open pavucontrol
pasystray - quite good, but usually I would need 2 clicks - to change current app output and to change default output, in case when I jsut login - then 1 click - overall pretty good (global shortcuts for volum control and simpler menu would be nice too)

When you enable multiple outputs under pavucontrol, you get a slider under the plugin to switch and/or enable outputs
