It would be a nice feature to create a different PulseAudio source per user. This would allows you to filter, record and modify streams of individual users. For example, you can mute and make people louder, or and an effect to some user.

I think that this should be configurable because not everyone will want this feature and there might be a performance overhead when it is active.

Another thing I would think is that streams would need to stay open even when users are silent, so that you don't lose track of users every time they stop talking.

    Eh?
    You mean client-side configuration of other users PA-data with local scope?

    And I don’t get why one would need continuous streams of data?

    I don't know what you mean by "other users PA-data" but I mean have the streams you get from other user be separate PA sources rather than being merged into one by the client.

    This would be really useful for live-streaming as well as general control of the audio. (making people louder or quieter and more)

    It was pointed out to me that you probably meant PulseAudio and not PositionalAudio, which I was referring to in my reply. :)

    Ah, that makes everything clearer. I guess I should of said "pulseaudio" somewhere in my question.

    I would love this just for being able to modify clients volumes on my server. That's a huge feature I miss from ventrilo. Some people just don't know how to configure their mics, and rather than try and force all of them into doing it while holding their hands, this'd be a great peace of mind (ear). Great suggestion. :)
