Heyas folks --
I'm wondering if there is any interest in a pseudo audio device driver
that does nothing but push raw PCM data back to userland.
I discovered the rtunes project (http://www.nazgul.ch/dev_rtunes.html)
today, which transcodes WAV and PCM data to Apple Lossless Audio, then
pumps the data to an Apple Airport that supports AirTunes. So that's
kind've cool, but I need to either pipe PCM to the rtunes application, or
modify existing applications to use the rtunes support library.
Instead of this, I wrote a simple audio device driver that pushes raw PCM
back to userland. It allows me to redirect the PCM data written to an MI
audio device back to userland, and I fed this data into rtunes for
seamless operation with any audio consumer.
So, I ask -- is there any interest in this pseudo-device driver?
