I posted a topic about this on the Ubuntu user forums
but I figured LAU was well-suited for this query as well:
Lately I've been using an external USB synthesizer as my main
soundcard in ubuntu (much better than my onboard) but a lot of apps I
use don't support JACK, which is the only way (and the preferable way)
to get audio output.
The one app that I really wish worked with JACK (out of the box) was
Mplayer. I really want JACK audio output with mplayer, but I don't
want to compile mplayer myself. Does anyone know of a binary .deb of
mplayer that contains support for JACK (ala mplayer -ao jack) ?
I can't find any related topics about this; perhaps it's just me?
I'm running Edgy:
