WinePulse – PulseAudio for Wine,It s a PulseAudio backend for WINE, an opensource implementation of the Windows API on X/Unix. PulseAudio is a modern sound system for Linux. Currently WINE applications cannot fully cooperate with pulseaudio, creating an either-or situation which is messy. WinePulse means that on a PulseAudio setup audio will always work in WINE for you. Doesn t matter what kind of device the audio is coming out of or captured from, things will work. It also means that you get all the benefits of PulseAudio ,Audio in wine is undergoing an overhaul to support the mmdevapi introduced in Windows Vista. WinePulse will be made redundant by these changes. Thus, this patch will only be maintained only as a stopgap until the new audio system is available.
