Media Kit Audio Backend Support
S5 - Suggestion
Hello, this would be a big feature request but if possible could someone implement the Haiku operating system's MediaKit as a new audio backend. This would be great for Haiku which it's goal is to be a multimedia os and MuseScore would be a new program for it.
Here are some references:
MuseScore uses Portaudio to talk to audio backends on Mac and Windows, and optionally on Linux. Portaudio is an abstraction library that connect to existing audio backend, like Media Kit.
Apparently there is a portaudio port for BeOS in alpha http://www.portaudio.com/status.html
If Portaudio would work on Haiku, it would make it a lot easier for MuseScore and other audio software using portaudio to be ported on Haiku.
So I would encourage you to ask the Haiku devs for a portaudio port.
Thanks for the response, though the beos implementation was for the older portaudio v18 and has been completely dropped in v19. I could check with haiku developers for a new backend of portaudio. Though as a question, does MuseScore use portaudio v18 or v19
I believe the API we use are the same so MuseScore should work with both. I believe it's v19 on mac and windows.
