    pulseaudio looks interesting, particularly with the
    availability of multimedia/libflashsupport-pulse

Hi David --

I have used the following with pulseaudio:

  native pulseaudio applications
  flash 9 and 10 (with libflashsupport-pulse)
  esound clients (wine, etc)
  alsa applications with the pulse sink
  oss applications (via padsp)
  any gstreamer application with gst-plugins0.10-pulse
  libao applications with libao-pulse
  mplayer, vlc
  xine with xine-pulse
  bmp with bmp-pulse

Notably missing from this list is ekiga; there is no pulse support in ptlib, but the next major release of ekiga will include gstreamer support so hopefully this will no longer be an issue.
