Observations

  • Audio on Linux sucks. Developers don't know which interface to use.
  • No clear vision from kernel, distros, or application developers.
  • Problems: CODECs, configuration, multiple apps through HW device
  • APIs needed for integrating audio applications
  • No venue to discuss audio
  • Professional vs consumer

Next steps

  • Focus only on audio as a first step and audio/video syncronisation is almost guaranteed to be a problem later
  • Create a focus group on what is needed from audio APIs.
  • Create use cases
  • Target Linux Audio Conference for face to face meeting
