ALSA support on FreeBSD is not outstanding.

ALSA?! on FreeBSD?! BUAHAHAHA ;)
good one ;)

Why we EVEN would want ALSA on FreeBSD?

We have virtual OSS channels mixing in kernel already, You can set them to 256, 1024, or even 1024*256, they work great even with old ISA card with one physical channel You can have many many channels to hear output of many audio/video sources, there are NONE problems with audio apps on FreeBSD, contrariwise to Linux problems with OSS apps [only 1 channel], with sound daemons, with wrappers for sound daemons, with OSS ALSA emulation, and dmix is not perfect.

On FreeBSD You can use as many sound daemons + as many OSS apps as YOU WANT.

Linux is years behind that.

Do You still want ALSA on FreeBSD? ;)

Because that is what Flash 9 uses for audio, and there are no alternatives offered.

It seems I read that Adobe was creating an opensource plugin type interface to Flash 9 and that you could use that to get it to use OSS instead of ALSA.
