Ticket #6049 (new enhancement)
JACK audio support for Virtualbox (Linux host)
|Reported by:||mark_orion||Owned by:|
It is difficult to use audio from one or more Virtualbox VMs and other applications simultaniously. Or to route the audio stream between VMs and applications. Virtualbox currently supports OSS, ALSA and pulseaudio. While the pulseaudio implementation on many distros (Ubuntu) is buggy and difficult to configure, OSS and ALSA usually do not support multiple applications using the audio device at the same time. I suggest additional support for JACK (Jack Audio Connection Kit). JACK is a well established soundsystem that many (semi)professional audio users use.
