there are some issues with the audio drivers and I just wanted to
summarize them here. Perhaps you got comments, patches ... and it would be
great if you could drop me a line about who is working on what so we can
coordinate our efforts and I can estimate which feature will go into which
ok, here we go:
- the alsa driver seems to have synchronization problems - I've had
reports that you can get it out of sync by toggling fullscreen mode
I think somebody should check this.
- there are quite a few audio boards out there that can't do
48 kHz sampling rate so we need the downsampling capability.
SDL seems to be one solution, but I think it would be nice if we
could do that without SDL as well. Perhaps we can draw some code
out of SDL?
looks like a good point to start
- alsa once again: Siggi told me that you can still use ALSA output even
when native OSS drivers are loaded; but if you do there is no audio
playback - so there seems to be a problem with ALSA driver detection
- digital AC3/AC5 (dts) output
- 4-channel surround sound via ALSA
- better/faster 5->2 channel downmix functions. Again, SDL seems to have
nice routines for this (SDL_mixer.c)
- compare our libac3 to the current ac3dec from linuxvideo.org and see
if there has been any valuable progress on their side
ok - hoping for comments :-)
