Do you have experience with OSS ?
  • Hi,

    I use an M-Audio sound card and OSS driver

    Someone here has experience with OSS (input, output) and AIRTIME?

    I use Ubuntu Server 12.10.

    Ossinfo command displays:

  • Airtime can use the OSS driver to play out content. Check out System -> Streams

  • Yes I know, but i have no sound. I have chose OSS in  Streams option.

    Airtime can use the OSS driver for input also ?

  • Not for input, it would need ALSA for that.

    A quick way to check why OSS isn't working for you is to run 

    airtime-liquidsoap 'output.oss(sine())' 

    from the terminal

    since ALSA supports Delta1010, is there a special purpose using a Delta1010 with OSS?
    I'm asking because we are going to use the same M-Audio with ALSA in future...

    Most of the time an issue is located between keyboard and chair.
  • @hoerich I do not know. I had heard, but I understood that the quality was better with OSS. Whatever happens, I do not know how to set the correct input on the map DELTA 1010

    delta 1010 working well with alsa

    download mudita24 and configure it
  • Well I deleted and reinstall alsa oss4. I disable the sound card on the motherboard and now I can hear the sound! Thank you!

    @Albert, i use ubuntu server... mudita24 is not possible ;-(
