    It sounds crazy on phones, but not on tablets which are the usual target devices for such apps.

      It would be awesome if someday Android moved closer to standard Linux stack with likes of pulseaudio, systemd and Wayland. As Tizen will likely use these technologies it provides good comparison in performance and features. I guess only future will tell.

        Or cyanogenmod. It might be more likely to see it there rather than stock android since they don't have anything personally invested in AudioFlinger, even more so if it can act as an api-compatible drop-in replacement.

          Ha!

          Where are all the naysayers complaining about using a server for audio now? This doesn't look like the typical PA related thread at all. Very strange.

          Lol Good one! Maybe in 5-10 more years we'll be doing all that on phones

            I was thinking exactly the same thing. It's rare that you get an article saying so many positive things about PA but you can't really argue with those kinds of results.

              I'm a little curious how much disk space this uses

              I wouldn't think it would be enough to matter, even on a phone, but I'm not sure how many different dependencies PA relies on.

                Wayland maybe, but Pulseaudio and SystemD are nasty ugly things that need to die a fast death.

                  The following is from Gentoo. The first one is Gentoo-specific. Most of them are optional. I suspect many of these are present on Android anyway. So it's not as bad as you might think.

                  Code:

                    Yeah that makes sense... it's systemd by the way.

                      One of the most stupid things I read. I didn't like PA in the past, but it's very good now. Like you can see it's very good on smartphones, too. systemd is simply brilliant unlike the mess like sysvinit.
