pipewire.conf ā€” The PipeWire server configuration file




PipeWire is a service that allows access to multimedia devices and allows media sharing between applications.

On startup, the daemon reads a configuration file to configure itself. It executes a series of commands listed in the config file.

The config file in the default location is used but the environment variable PIPEWIRE_CONFIG_FILE can be used to specify an alternative config file.
