Four years

Four years and what seems like a lifetime ago, I jumped aboard the ship Collabora Multimedia, and set sail for adventure and lands unknown. We sailed through strange new seas, to exotic lands, defeated many monsters, and, I feel, had some positive impact on the world around us. Last Friday, on my request, I got […]

Androidifying your autotools build the easy way

Derek Foreman has finally written up a nice blog post about his Androgenizer tool, which we’ve used for porting PulseAudio, GStreamer, Wayland, Telepathy and most of their dependencies to Android.

PulseAudio on Android: Part 2

So your mic will automatically adjust the input level based on how loud you’re speaking. It’s quite quick to adapt if you’re too loud, […]
