PipeWire is a project that aims to greatly improve handling of audio and video under Linux. It aims to support the usecases currently handled by both PulseAudio and Jack and at the same time provide same level of powerful handling of Video input and output. It also introduces a security model that makes interacting with audio and video devices from containerized applications easy, with supporting Flatpak applications being the primary goal. Alongside Wayland and Flatpak we expect PipeWire to provide a core building block for the future of Linux application development.
Sounds good to me! Audio was kind of a pain when I first started using Linux. Jack worked well, but it too was kind of a pain (and still is). Pulse is a step in the right direction, but still not quite there. I don't have time to try PipeWire out at the moment, but I sure will when I'm not so busy with other stuff.

Thanks for posting this, DGMurdockIII, and please give us a report if you try using it.

I ran into this, "Launching Pipewire!", trying to get PA to work a certain way.
It sounds like it's grown to be a replacement for PA in the future.
