    [PLANNING]OSSv4 or OpenAL Plugin

    I've recently switched to OSS for various reasons I won't go into and I noticed that one of the few applications that do not support OSS is Teamspeak. I noticed in the client plugin SDK the following functions:


    I've started multiple plugins before... and I've found that certain functions didn't quite do what I wanted them to do. So I'm going to ask before I continue.

    Do the functions listed above allow me to add sound devices to the playback/capture list? Can these devices playback and record like any other device? Why are plugins not used instead of soundbackend libraries then? Any other feedback would be nice.

    I'm back and I've started implementing the actual plugin. But I'm rather stumped...

    I've learned that two of the functions I posted are automatically handled by Teamspeak 3. The only ones *currently* relevant should be the following:


    When you register a device, it adds a usable string to a mode list named "custom". It looks pretty promising at the moment.

    However, I'm confused as to /where/ I'm supposed to buffer playback data. Where am I supposed to call "ts3client_acquireCustomPlaybackData"?
