That’s good news, thanks for the link.

Currently, using ALSA, it’s just a check box to tick in gst-mixer.
Unless you can detect automatically whether the SP/DIF output is being
used (and it’s not always possible), I don’t know how you can make it

To do things like that with Linux, you’ve always needed JACK until now.
And if we want to cover all uses cases JACK covers, PA will end up just
reimplementing JACK.
