In the past I've toyed with the gstreamer solution. Works ok for one
audio play. For example, when the song starts the divice shows up in
qjack and can be patched to output. But, when the song ends, the
device goes away and a new device appears for the next song. This
appeared to be the default way most apps were using gstreamer to jack.
I found no way around this behavior.

Is flash going away?
