Would it mean that it would use PulseAudio exclusively on Linux?
The PortAudio replacements on the various operating systems are
currently works in progress. We've been choosing PulseAudio on Linux
over PortAudio where available for quite some time now, we've recently
started preferring WASAPI on Windows and there's no alternative on OS
X yet. In the long term, the plan for PortAudio is to remain with as
little maintenance as possible and to improve its alternatives.
In my case, I experience a lack of echo cancellation, which makes
conferencing almost impossible.
Maybe this should be a separate post, but, is there any echo cancellation
going in in Jitsi at all if I use PulseAudio on linux?
PulseAudio is supposed to implement the echo cancellation. I'm not
sure how far the PulseAudio guys and the vaious distributions have
been able to push it.
We're working on the echo cancellation feature of the WASAPI backend
using Windows' Voice Capture DSP.
We plan to later work on a platform independent (or rather
multi-platform dependent) echo cencellation implementation later on
using code from WebRTC. We may even fallback to Speex at some point.
