PulseAudio 0.9.5 reviewDownload
PulseAudio is a networked sound server for Linux and other Unix like operating systems
PulseAudio is a networked sound server for Linux and other Unix like operating systems. PulseAudio is intended to be an improved drop-in replacement for the Enlightened Sound Daemon (ESOUND).
Here are some key features of "PulseAudio":
Extensible plugin architecture (by loading dynamic loadable modules with dlopen())
Support for more than one sink/source
Better low latency behaviour
Embedabble into other software (the core is available as C library)
Completely asynchronous C API
Simple command line interface for reconfiguring the daemon while running
Flexible, implicit sample type conversion and resampling
Very accurate latency measurement for playback and recording.
May be used to combine multiple sound cards to one (with sample rate adjustment)
Client side latency interpolation
Ability to fully synchronize multiple playback streams
As this package is made with the GNU autotools you should run ./configure inside the distribution directory for configuring the source tree. After that you should run make for compilation and make install (as root) for installation of polypaudio.
