6.1 Overview

Plugins that have the capability flag HWPLUG_CAPS_AUDIOADAPTER set can replace Hollywood's inbuilt audio driver with a customized version. This is a very powerful feature and allows you to reroute Hollywood's complete audio output through an entirely different backend, thus making it possible to adapt Hollywood to completely different audio environments.

Please note that audio adapters are not automatically initialized when Hollywood loads the plugin. Instead, you have to manually call hw_SetAudioAdapter() in your RequirePlugin() function to activate the audio adapter. The audio adapter will then only be activated if the user calls @REQUIRE on your plugin. Otherwise, Hollywood will use its default audio driver. See Auto and manual plugin initialization for details.

See hw_SetAudioAdapter for information on how to install your audio adapter.

This plugin type is supported since Hollywood 6.0.
