I got an answer from the Devs on this one (didnt mean to post it twice. oops):

Hi Vikram,

It is very likely that you will need to write a Player driver for your
card. You should check the player supported-hardware list


but I'm pretty sure we don't have a driver for your card. The good news is
that writing a Player driver is pretty straightforward if you have
hardware drivers already. Essentially you just interpret between the data
that your Linux driver is producing and consuming, and Player's
device-independent formats. Take a look at some of the Player driver code
to get an idea of what you need to do. The waveaudio driver is a
reasonable place to start; it is a very simple example that shifts data
between the audio driver's interface (/dev/audio in the filesystem) and

If you write a driver, please consider contributing it to the project.
Player would definitely benefit from some DAC support, and you could make
some people happy.

I was wondering if you could help me. I intend to use player to
communicate with sensors using a multi-purpose DAC (data acquisition
card). This card comes with its own drivers for Linux. The card itself
is just a PCI card that slots into the PC.

I was wondering how do I get Player to work with this device? Do I use
the drivers that came with card or do I have to make my own?
