I'd like to send audio from a browser to jackd so I can watch flash videos with jackd audio. It looks like this technique will create an ALSA device name for jackd:

Does anyone know which browsers will allow you to specify an ALSA device name for audio output? It looks like chromium will:

Any others?

Browsers might or might not enable you to select THEIR OWN audio output to whatever alsa device.
This is one thing. That output can be used for the ouput of HTML5 content for example.

Flash is another completely unrelated thing. Flash ALWAYS output to the default alsa device, period.
I mean whatever the browser you use.

So, whatever the method you use, whatever the browser you use, if you want flash content to output audio to jack, you have to redirect the alsa default output to jack and that's all.

Tricky.... I was hoping to fire up a particular browser when I want to output to jackd and use my normal browser when I don't. If flash won't cooperate, maybe I should stick to YouTube videos and use minitube which I think will accept an ALSA device name.

I'm still curious if anyone knows of a browser other than chromium that will allow you to specify an ALSA device name for output.

Opera relies on gstreamer for its <audio> content. So... you just get to configure gstreamer.
AFAIK, there is? (was) a gstreamer jack plugin (among the ugly collection, or bad at least)
