It would be useful to be able to watch a video in Firefox, pause it, and
preview another video. Or pause it and listen to some music via
rhythmbox. But it appears that the first application attaches the audio
channel, and all other audio sources are blocked.
Is there any way to simulate the selector switch present on stereo
receivers that allow selection of some arbitrary source, without
shutting down the other sources? If so, how does one specify to
realplayer or rythmbox which channel to use?
Some mixers allow definition of channels for recording, but I do not see
similar capabilities for playback. I started to look at Jack, but that
appears to be hitting a mouse with a sledge hammer:-)
Any references would be appreciated.
