/** \page streams Audio Streams
 *
 * \section overv_sec Overview
 *
 * Audio streams form the central functionality of the sound server. Data is
 * routed, converted and mixed from several sources before it is passed along
 * to a final output. Currently, there are three forms of audio streams:
 *
 * \li Playback streams - Data flows from the client to the server.
 * \li Record streams - Data flows from the server to the client.
 * \li Upload streams - Similar to playback streams, but the data is stored in
 *                      the sample cache. See \ref scache for more information
 *                      about controlling the sample cache.
 *
 * \section create_sec Creating
 *
 * To access a stream, a pa_stream object must be created using
 * pa_stream_new(). At this point the audio sample format and mapping of
 * channels must be specified. See \ref sample and \ref channelmap for more
 * information about those structures.
 *
 * This first step will only create a client-side object, representing the
 * stream. To use the stream, a server-side object must be created and
 * associated with the local object. Depending on which type of stream is
 * desired, a different function is needed:
 *
 * \li Playback stream - pa_stream_connect_playback()
 * \li Record stream - pa_stream_connect_record()
 * \li Upload stream - pa_stream_connect_upload() (see \ref scache)
 *
 * Similar to how connections are done in contexts, connecting a stream will
 * not generate a pa_operation object. Also like contexts, the application
 * should register a state change callback, using
 * pa_stream_set_state_callback(), and wait for the stream to enter an active
 * state.
 *
 * \subsection bufattr_subsec Buffer Attributes
 *
 * Playback and record streams always have a server-side buffer as
 * part of the data flow.  The size of this buffer needs to be chosen
 * in a compromise between low latency and sensitivity for buffer
 * overflows/underruns.
 *
 * The buffer metrics may be controlled by the application. They are
 * described with a pa_buffer_attr structure which contains a number
 * of fields:
 *
 * \li maxlength - The absolute maximum number of bytes that can be
 *                 stored in the buffer. If this value is exceeded
 *                 then data will be lost. It is recommended to pass
 *                 (uint32_t) -1 here which will cause the server to
 *                 fill in the maximum possible value.
 *
 * \li tlength - The target fill level of the playback buffer. The
 *               server will only send requests for more data as long
 *               as the buffer has less than this number of bytes of
 *               data. If you pass (uint32_t) -1 (which is
 *               recommended) here the server will choose the longest
 *               target buffer fill level possible to minimize the
 *               number of necessary wakeups and maximize drop-out
 *               safety. This can exceed 2s of buffering. For
 *               low-latency applications or applications where
 *               latency matters you should pass a proper value here.
 *
 * \li prebuf - Number of bytes that need to be in the buffer before
 *              playback will commence. Start of playback can be
 *              forced using pa_stream_trigger() even though the
 *              prebuffer size hasn't been reached. If a buffer
 *              underrun occurs, this prebuffering will be again
 *              enabled. If the playback shall never stop in case of a
 *              buffer underrun, this value should be set to 0. In
 *              that case the read index of the output buffer
 *              overtakes the write index, and hence the fill level of
 *              the buffer is negative. If you pass (uint32_t) -1 here
 *              (which is recommended) the server will choose the same
 *              value as tlength here.
 *
 * \li minreq - Minimum free number of the bytes in the playback
 *              buffer before the server will request more data. It is
 *              recommended to fill in (uint32_t) -1 here. This value
 *              influences how much time the sound server has to move
 *              data from the per-stream server-side playback buffer
 *              to the hardware playback buffer.
 *
 * \li fragsize - Maximum number of bytes that the server will push in
 *                one chunk for record streams. If you pass (uint32_t)
 *                -1 (which is recommended) here, the server will
 *                choose the longest fragment setting possible to
 *                minimize the number of necessary wakeups and
 *                maximize drop-out safety. This can exceed 2s of
 *                buffering. For low-latency applications or
 *                applications where latency matters you should pass a
 *                proper value here.
 *
 * If PA_STREAM_ADJUST_LATENCY is set, then the tlength/fragsize
 * parameters will be interpreted slightly differently than described
 * above when passed to pa_stream_connect_record() and
 * pa_stream_connect_playback(): the overall latency that is comprised
 * of both the server side playback buffer length, the hardware
 * playback buffer length and additional latencies will be adjusted in
 * a way that it matches tlength resp. fragsize. Set
 * PA_STREAM_ADJUST_LATENCY if you want to control the overall
 * playback latency for your stream. Unset it if you want to control
 * only the latency induced by the server-side, rewritable playback
 * buffer. The server will try to fulfill the clients latency requests
 * as good as possible. However if the underlying hardware cannot
 * change the hardware buffer length or only in a limited range, the
 * actually resulting latency might be different from what the client
 * requested. Thus, for synchronization clients always need to check
 * the actual measured latency via pa_stream_get_latency() or a
 * similar call, and not make any assumptions. about the latency
 * available. The function pa_stream_get_buffer_attr() will always
 * return the actual size of the server-side per-stream buffer in
 * tlength/fragsize, regardless whether PA_STREAM_ADJUST_LATENCY is
 * set or not.
 *
 * The server-side per-stream playback buffers are indexed by a write and a read
 * index. The application writes to the write index and the sound
 * device reads from the read index. The read index is increased
 * monotonically, while the write index may be freely controlled by
 * the application. Substracting the read index from the write index
 * will give you the current fill level of the buffer. The read/write
 * indexes are 64bit values and measured in bytes, they will never
 * wrap. The current read/write index may be queried using
 * pa_stream_get_timing_info() (see below for more information). In
 * case of a buffer underrun the read index is equal or larger than
 * the write index. Unless the prebuf value is 0, PulseAudio will
 * temporarily pause playback in such a case, and wait until the
 * buffer is filled up to prebuf bytes again. If prebuf is 0, the
 * read index may be larger than the write index, in which case
 * silence is played. If the application writes data to indexes lower
 * than the read index, the data is immediately lost.
 *
 * \section transfer_sec Transferring Data
 *
 * Once the stream is up, data can start flowing between the client and the
 * server. Two different access models can be used to transfer the data:
 *
 * \li Asynchronous - The application register a callback using
 *                    pa_stream_set_write_callback() and
 *                    pa_stream_set_read_callback() to receive notifications
 *                    that data can either be written or read.
 * \li Polled - Query the library for available data/space using
 *              pa_stream_writable_size() and pa_stream_readable_size() and
 *              transfer data as needed. The sizes are stored locally, in the
 *              client end, so there is no delay when reading them.
 *
 * It is also possible to mix the two models freely.
 *
 * Once there is data/space available, it can be transferred using either
 * pa_stream_write() for playback, or pa_stream_peek() / pa_stream_drop() for
 * record. Make sure you do not overflow the playback buffers as data will be
 * dropped.
 *
 * \section bufctl_sec Buffer Control
 *
 * The transfer buffers can be controlled through a number of operations:
 *
 * \li pa_stream_cork() - Start or stop the playback or recording.
 * \li pa_stream_trigger() - Start playback immediatly and do not wait for
 *                           the buffer to fill up to the set trigger level.
 * \li pa_stream_prebuf() - Reenable the playback trigger level.
 * \li pa_stream_drain() - Wait for the playback buffer to go empty. Will
 *                         return a pa_operation object that will indicate when
 *                         the buffer is completely drained.
 * \li pa_stream_flush() - Drop all data from the playback buffer and do not
 *                         wait for it to finish playing.
 *
 * \section seek_modes Seeking in the Playback Buffer
 *
 * A client application may freely seek in the playback buffer. To
 * accomplish that the pa_stream_write() function takes a seek mode
 * and an offset argument. The seek mode is one of:
 *
 * \li PA_SEEK_RELATIVE - seek relative to the current write index
 * \li PA_SEEK_ABSOLUTE - seek relative to the beginning of the playback buffer, (i.e. the first that was ever played in the stream)
 * \li PA_SEEK_RELATIVE_ON_READ - seek relative to the current read index. Use this to write data to the output buffer that should be played as soon as possible
 * \li PA_SEEK_RELATIVE_END - seek relative to the last byte ever written.
 *
 * If an application just wants to append some data to the output
 * buffer, PA_SEEK_RELATIVE and an offset of 0 should be used.
 *
 * After a call to pa_stream_write() the write index will be left at
 * the position right after the last byte of the written data.
 *
 * \section latency_sec Latency
 *
 * A major problem with networked audio is the increased latency caused by
 * the network. To remedy this, PulseAudio supports an advanced system of
 * monitoring the current latency.
 *
 * To get the raw data needed to calculate latencies, call
 * pa_stream_get_timing_info(). This will give you a pa_timing_info
 * structure that contains everything that is known about the server
 * side buffer transport delays and the backend active in the
 * server. (Besides other things it contains the write and read index
 * values mentioned above.)
 *
 * This structure is updated every time a
 * pa_stream_update_timing_info() operation is executed. (i.e. before
 * the first call to this function the timing information structure is
 * not available!) Since it is a lot of work to keep this structure
 * up-to-date manually, PulseAudio can do that automatically for you:
 * if PA_STREAM_AUTO_TIMING_UPDATE is passed when connecting the
 * stream PulseAudio will automatically update the structure every
 * 100ms and every time a function is called that might invalidate the
 * previously known timing data (such as pa_stream_write() or
 * pa_stream_flush()). Please note however, that there always is a
 * short time window when the data in the timing information structure
 * is out-of-date. PulseAudio tries to mark these situations by
 * setting the write_index_corrupt and read_index_corrupt fields
 * accordingly.
 *
 * The raw timing data in the pa_timing_info structure is usually hard
 * to deal with. Therefore a simpler interface is available:
 * you can call pa_stream_get_time() or pa_stream_get_latency(). The
 * former will return the current playback time of the hardware since
 * the stream has been started. The latter returns the overall time a sample
 * that you write now takes to be played by the hardware. These two
 * functions base their calculations on the same data that is returned
 * by pa_stream_get_timing_info(). Hence the same rules for keeping
 * the timing data up-to-date apply here. In case the write or read
 * index is corrupted, these two functions will fail with
 * PA_ERR_NODATA set.
 *
 * Since updating the timing info structure usually requires a full
 * network round trip and some applications monitor the timing very
 * often PulseAudio offers a timing interpolation system. If
 * PA_STREAM_INTERPOLATE_TIMING is passed when connecting the stream,
 * pa_stream_get_time() and pa_stream_get_latency() will try to
 * interpolate the current playback time/latency by estimating the
 * number of samples that have been played back by the hardware since
 * the last regular timing update. It is espcially useful to combine
 * this option with PA_STREAM_AUTO_TIMING_UPDATE, which will enable
 * you to monitor the current playback time/latency very precisely and
 * very frequently without requiring a network round trip every time.
 *
 * \section flow_sec Overflow and underflow
 *
 * Even with the best precautions, buffers will sometime over - or
 * underflow.  To handle this gracefully, the application can be
 * notified when this happens. Callbacks are registered using
 * pa_stream_set_overflow_callback() and
 * pa_stream_set_underflow_callback().
 *
 * \section sync_streams Sychronizing Multiple Playback Streams
 *
 * PulseAudio allows applications to fully synchronize multiple
 * playback streams that are connected to the same output device. That
 * means the streams will always be played back sample-by-sample
 * synchronously. If stream operations like pa_stream_cork() are
 * issued on one of the synchronized streams, they are simultaneously
 * issued on the others.
 *
 * To synchronize a stream to another, just pass the "master" stream
 * as last argument to pa_stream_connect_playback(). To make sure that
 * the freshly created stream doesn't start playback right-away, make
 * sure to pass PA_STREAM_START_CORKED and - after all streams have
 * been created - uncork them all with a single call to
 * pa_stream_cork() for the master stream.
 *
 * To make sure that a particular stream doesn't stop to play when a
 * server side buffer underrun happens on it while the other
 * synchronized streams continue playing and hence deviate you need to
 * pass a "prebuf" pa_buffer_attr of 0 when connecting it.
 *
 * \section disc_sec Disconnecting
 *
 * When a stream has served is purpose it must be disconnected with
 * pa_stream_disconnect(). If you only unreference it, then it will live on
 * and eat resources both locally and on the server until you disconnect the
 * context.
