    Portable Audio Library

    Hi,

    What would you people recommend for a lightweight, portable audio library? All I really need is pushing the decoded raw data to the soundcard.

    By portable I mean Windows, Linux, Mac, on various architectures like x86, x86_64, IA64, Alpha, M89k, you get the idea. Basically, the thing is supposed to run everywhere where the Cairo graphics library runs as well.
    All the buzzt!

    Check out FMOD and OpenAL, www.fmod.org and www.openal.org respectively

    OpenAL it will have to be, FMOD does not fulfill the CPU requirement. (No AMD64 versions where I can see them, unless I pay the license and compile the source myself.)
