padsp — PulseAudio OSS Wrapper

Synopsis

padsp [options] PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS ...]

padsp -h

Description

padsp starts the specified program and redirects its access to OSS compatible audio devices (/dev/dsp and auxiliary devices) to a PulseAudio sound server.

padsp uses the $LD_PRELOAD environment variable that is interpreted by ld.so(8) and thus does not work for SUID binaries and statically built executables.

Equivalent to using padsp is starting an application with $LD_PRELOAD set to libpulsedsp.so
