[PATCH] Please update PulseAudio plugin
Last modified: 2008-04-07 16:56:11 EDT
The PulseAudio plugin shipped with xine-lib upstream is a racy mess, please
integrate this patch I just prepared which fixes all issues I am aware of:
I think this is safe for F9 given the bad quality of the old driver. Even if the
new one is not perfect, it's still far better then the current driver.
* Remove the awful mess of racyness
* Remove all usleep() loops
* Implement muting properly
* Support surround sound properly
* Implement Pause/Resume
* Clean other things up
I am posting this upstream now too.
Now that xine-pulse plugin may actually be useful (pending confirmation) :) ,

And, if there are no objections, yes, I'm volunteering to do/help-with the
packaging work to make that happen.
Fine with me.
Got merged upstream, BTW.
Anyone objects if I do the commit?
(of course, assuming the ACLs are properly set...)
I updated this patch again:
Fixes another limitation of the original driver: unbreaks driver autoprobing.
That patch is a 404, do you mean this?
Uh, fixed the URL.
rework+fixup is the same as rework2.
OK, let's give this a whirl:
* Mon Apr 07 2008 Rex Dieter <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 184.108.40.206-2
- pulse-rework2 patch (#439731)
- -pulseaudio subpkg (#439731)
Are there any chances for seeing this update in Fedora 8?
of course, just give us a chance to at least test it a little first. :)

Rex, I added a small patch to kdebase-runtime which enables the backend in
Phonon, we can add it to the specfile and build it as soon as you're
comfortable with doing it. We'll also want kde-settings-pulseaudio to Requires:
