Without changing the default audio device for the system, is there anyway on the command line to specify the default sound output device using vlc? Can you specify a different sound output device and a different sound input device on the command line?

If you're using pulseaudio, as in Ubuntu. Simply set PULSE_SINK on the command line.

PULSE_SINK=1 vlc

You can find out the value use by inspecting the Pulse Audio syncs with pacmd list-sinks.
