Mac: If you use software like iTunes, Spotify or VOX to listen to music on your Mac, then Background Music is a handy little utility that will pause your music when you start up audio in another program (like Chrome), then auto-resume when it's done. When any app other than your music player starts playing audio, Background Music will pause the music. So, if you start playing a video on YouTube in Chrome when you're listening to music in Spotify, Background Music pauses Spotify, then resumes playing it once the video is done. It also has a mixer where you can adjust audio levels per app and even record system audio. However, Background Music is very new and very much still in early beta. You'll have to compile it on your own (don't worry there's a one-click setup script though) and you'll probably experience some bugs. Still, it's free and worked well for me with YouTube and Spotify, which covers my personal most common use-case for an app like this.
