Does that mean portaudio works better as an audio sink than
I'm afraid I'm not sure what you mean. PortAudio currently crashes for
multiple people (on multiple operating systems).
I guess I am not sure exactly how the audio system works in Jitsi. I
just see that there is a pulseaudio or portaudio option. Portaudio lists
all alsa devices as well as pulse audio where as the pulse audio option
only lists the default pulseaudio output/input devices, I assume handing
of stream selection to Pulseaudio, which in my experience it does.
Both PortAudio and PulseAudio use ALSA. PulseAudio registers pseudo ALSA devices which is why you see them in PortAudio.
Portaudio I assume then the native Java implementation for an audio
framework, but does not seem to be terribly well supported under Linux.
I am not sure what you mean by "native Java implementation". Historically we used PortAudio on all OSes. We are now moving away from it, so at least our default choices are not going to be PortAudio (we may still fallback to portaudio if our other option doesn't work).
In that sense, on Linux, we recommend use of Jitsi through PulseAudio.
So are you asking for the Linux community to roll our own solution to
audio on Linux or what?
I don't understand this question. Who is "you" in this case and who is "the Linux community" and why do both appear as separate, opposing options?
Again, we have developed support for PulsAaudio in Jitsi because it works better than PortAudio so we advise that you use this.
I apologise if I come across as clueless but until 3 weeks ago I had
never even used Jitsi and so need to orientate to the community and its'
There is no need to apologise for anything, however it would help if you could maybe be a little bit more clear in what you are saying (I personally find it very helpful to always reread my e-mails before sending them, and have realised that they are always hard to understand when I don't).

Thanks for any insights.
It's a tough job, but some mug has to do it...
