How to install a dummy (fake) sound card

Post by fjleon » 2018/12/08 21:09:42

Hello, for reasons that are not really worth explaining i need to install a fake sound card on my centos 6 VPS. I searched and found something but it seems to be only for alsa. I understand centos uses pulseaudio instead but haven't found anything relevant.

Can someone point me in the right direction? I am playing a streaming audio in a website and when i press play the seconds counter doesn't move so i figured this is what i need.

Hello,

Not sure of your use case, but I had a requirement to combine my (various) outputs and inputs into a fake (i.,e.: single or virtual) output. I followed this https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pu ... _/_devices and got it working.

Don't know if it's relevant for you or not.

That doesn't sound like a symptom that will be fixed by your proposed solution to me.
