- This stream directions means that a player streams data to the server in order to play it back.
- This direction is to record audio from the soundcard. This is used if for example you want to get data from your microphon or line in.
- This direction is used to get a copy of what the server sends to the soundcard. This can for example be used to stream the fully mixed data to Icecast (see icecast2(1)).
- This is used to crate a filter stream: A filter stream is a stream used to filter the output of the sound server by some tool. This can for example be used for an software equalizer. The filter stream is the only bi-directional stream. You have to read some data and write back data of exactly the same size.
- This is the type of the stream the server sends to the soundcard. You can not create such a stream. It's only listend for completeness.
On success these calls return a filehandle. On error, -1 is returned.
