I would like to see xine-lib permanently built with support for jack.

The rationale for that is the following:
- with kde4 phonon, it has never been easier to widely use jack as output to xine-lib. When xine-lib is built with jack you can very easily manage a session with jack turned on and the ability at the same time to hear system sounds (error bips, kalarm) as well as to use one's favourite xine-based player to hear the end-result of a sound project.
- the xine-lib jack support has recently been improved and seems more actively supported (see source changelog).
- the only added dependency, namely jack-audio-connection-kit is merely 300k and is already a dependency of a lot of audio applications.

I built it for me. just changed the --without-jack configure option and added the dependency in the standard PKGBUILD. Works well.

Thanks in advance for considering this request.


Additional info:
* package version(s)

* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:

Reason for closing:  Implemented
Additional comments about closing:  FTR, jack-audio-connection-kit is only needed to use the jack output plugin. So it's just a makedepends in the PKGBUILD.

I second this.

FYI, I'll add jack support once I can get xine-lib to build:  FS#12117
